DriftSport basic driver training in drifting

An exhilarating day on the track track trying to get the car floating around the corners.

Our buddy Rob is a motorhead of note. We first became friends through a shared passion for Land Rovers, and have been taking part in all kinds of adventures since. He also happens to be a drift-driving instructor in Lelystad, and we signed up for a day’s basic training at DriftSport.

Terrifying and fun

With all of Marcel’s driving experience, he took to it like a duck to water. It took me a good hour or so to get the knack of turning the wheel sharply going into the bend, and then counter-intuitively spinning it the other way to bring the car into what feels like it’s floating. Exhilarating when you get it right.

Merci Marcel, for letting me spend so much time behind the wheel. Next time, we take our own cars! xx
