This isn't lurid Japanese cars competing for top honours while waving out of the window; this is perfecting the art of oversteer the PH way.
If you have ever wanted to handle oversteer without panic, come and join PistonHeads at Silverstone on the 22nd October where we'll have a group of instructors, some lovely Caterhams and the PH team on hand for a day's tuition on how get out of shape on purpose. We will get you going sideways by the end of the day if you are a complete novice or help to hone your skills if you have some experience of driving through the side windows.
Initially you may find yourself spinning the car as you deliberately provoke power oversteer, but don’t worry as this is par for the course! You will then learn how to kick the tail out and hold the slide by balancing smooth steering and throttle inputs. There are few feelings more satisfying than controlling a massive tyre-melting drift and the ‘grin factor’ is simply off the scale....especially when you're not paying for the tyres!
When your confidence has grown we will change to a more challenging track layout designed to allow you longer drifts. Ultimately there will be four courses with the last giving you the opportunity to show off your new drifting abilities at a higher speed and through multiple corners. Our team will judge the three best drifters of the day and award prizes, but everyone leaves with a smile and improved driving skills.
In addition to having a great laugh, you will be fed throughout the day too. All you need to bring is your driving licence and a book of excuses.
We'll launch these sessions at Silverstone on the 22nd October, where we can accomodate 24 PHers. If demand is there we will hold more sessions at other venues around the country.
The day costs £225 per person and additional spectators can be added at the time of booking @ £10 (including lunch).
To book, call up the Caterham team on 01883 333700 and quote “PistonHeads drift school”. All customers who book on for the day will receive an information pack giving specific times, directions and additional information.
