I took the two day M school. It was a lot of fun; still can't drift.

Try the Winter course if you can make it to a Northern region.

I used to book private ones for customers and they loved it.

Lots of drifting but also vital safety lessons for the real (frozen) world.

Great videos. Understanding how to drift and do so safely makes one a better driver.

These videos tend to do wonders for annual sales of tire manufacturers.

I paid for a day at a drift school...that was great fun and you get to use their car!
End of the day two of the pro drift race guys took us out as passengers and drifted the track side by side literally inches apart...that was pretty special.
