Win chance to enjoy the Driftland experience

3 Mar 2015 07:00

DRIFTLAND UK, in Lochgelly, are offering one lucky Times reader the chance to win a starter drift experience worth £429. This thrilling day out could see YOU drifting one of the track’s school cars and then jumping in for a high speed ‘hot lap’ session with a pro driver. This introduction to the world of drifting promises to be an eye-opening experience from start to finish where you’ll undergo structured training in the core skills needed to master the sport: handbrake turns, doughnuts and figures of eight. During this lesson you will jump into the passenger seat and your instructor explains and then demonstrates how to pull off these spectacular skills before you take the wheel yourself for three attempts at each of these tyre-screeching manoeuvres! Next comes the short course where you combine the three core skills you will have picked up into one fluid movement. After an in-car demonstration from your instructor, you take the wheel yourself for the drift entry. Getting the right amount of angle, controlling the weight shift through the car and nailing the speed is essential – and you’ll have just three attempts to master this skill. Finally, you’ll experience a high-speed drift session. Jump in the passenger seat of one of our drift cars as two professionally-licensed drivers perform high-speed drift moves in this white-knuckle finale. This element of the day is often described by students as the highlight. You’ll be driving one of Driftland’s purpose-built drift cars based on R33 Skyline GTSTs. Allow 2.5 hours at the venue and the order of proceedings may vary based on numbers on the day. During the day, when not driving, you can take advantage of the many viewing galleries and hospitality suites on site and before you know it you’ll be behind the wheel again! A full UK manual driving licence is required. More information can be found at www.learntodrift-scotland.co.uk
