Learn How To Drift

Extreme Imports

Space To Practice

If you’re just starting out to learn how to drift I’d suggest an empty parking lot, or some open asphalt somewhere around your area. Watch out for the kerb, or any other bumps. If you’re careless you could mess up your suspension or rims real bad. Make sure there’s plenty of room for mistakes, accidents could become very costly!

TIP: Try practicing in the rain! In the wet less speed is required to lose grip because there is a layer of water between your tires and the asphalt. Practicing in rain will reduce your tire wear. And also because of the lower speeds and less input of throttle, you’ll have a lower fuel consumption.

The best of course, is to practice on a closed circuit, preferably under guidance if you’re still early in the process of learning how to drift.

If you have someone with experience to tell what you’re doing wrong, you’ll have a much better learning pace.

Circuits are not accessible for everyone. Entry fees are not always cheap and it’s not always around the corner. If you really wish to do it on the public road, beware of the consequences and find a safe spot (and time) to practice. It's best to remain on the circuit with your drifting activities anyway!
