Drift School is a chance to get hands-on tutoring by experienced Drift drivers, and track time to practice newly gained skills.
Tutors will guide you through what is required as you go, providing tips and advice. They may come for a ride with you to help further or if you wish they can drive your car for you to show you how its done.
