We are a Drift Clinic that has been around since 2002. Our Home track is Willowsprings Raceway, Rosamond California. It’s 60 miles from Los Angeles. We have 4 classes (Beginners, Intermediate, Advance and Expert) . We teach in the drift clinic once or twice a month – check our schedule page.
DO YOU HAVE INSTRUCTORS?
Yes, we do have instructors in the beginners and intermediate class and all our Drift clinics. The normal ration is 4:1 – our class is limited to 20 drivers per event. This will maximize seat time and shorten the learning curve of drifting.
