    Buckle up for the wild world of drifting – where we turn the "don'ts" of driving lessons into a symphony of controlled chaos. It's not just a gift; it's a ticket to making a car do all the things they said you shouldn't. Welcome to the thrill-seeking slideways side of the road!

    • You get behind the wheel of a purpose built Drift car and learn from the best.
    • Feel the power under your foot with the V8 drift cars producing more than 500hp.
    • We provide step by step instructions so you learn how to control and manoeuvre the vehicle.
    • In car training with a professional instructor by your side.


    Established in 2010, On Track Drift has been at the forefront, guiding enthusiasts through the art of drifting with unparalleled expertise. It's time to get fast and furious with this sensational “Drift Essentials” Experience led by professional stunt driver and MAD MAX stunt double Eugene Arendsen and team. Our drift essentials program is designed for someone wanting an introduction into drifting. It is designed as more of an experience as opposed to our other “Drift Master Class” day which allows you more time to learn the techniques.


    The essentials experience starts with a safety briefing, followed by an introduction to our instructors and our professional drift cars. From here the professional instructors will begin with the drift basics to get a feel for the vehicle and progress through out the day with a variety of manoeuvres to refine your drifting skills. We finish the day by completing a short track setup called Driftkhana combining your skills learnt throughout the day.


    The Driftkhana is a specially designed short course which will put together all the drift techniques you have learned. To cap it all off you will be strapped into the passenger seat and the pro drivers will take the wheel for an awesome battle lap.


    Make no mistake this experience will be one you will remember. You will learn the basics of drifting by the best Professional Drift, Stunt and Motorsport drivers in the country. Your instructor will teach you, one on one in the car taking you through the steps.


    As you progress through the day you will learn with 3-4 other participants for each vehicle and are accompanied by an instructor on each activity. Our Half Day experience is suitable for all driving abilities and we can cater to your skill level.

    More Information

    Sessions run from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM. 

    Drifting began in the mountain roads of Japan and has developed into a professional sport, popular across the world and highlighted in films such as the Fast and Furious. 

    The object of drifting is to "manoeuvre your car through corners at speeds and angles beyond its ability to grip the track", whilst maintaining control and building driving skill.
