New research reveals that petrolhead mad Brits would prefer to drift than experience the raw speed of a supercar.
The surprise finding is from leading driving experience provider TrackDays.co.uk, whose latest booking data reveals that its bestselling Drifting experience is taking twice as many bookings as its best-selling Supercar experience, the Triple Premium Supercar Blast.
Indeed, the Learn to Drift Half Day Drifting Experience with 6 Passenger Laps has been by far its most popular driving experience with adults across April and May, accounting for around a quarter of all bookings in that time.
Dan Jones, operations manager at TrackDays.co.uk, said: “Our latest booking data shows there has been a big shift to drift.
“Supercars, while always a perennial favourite, are currently losing pace against our drifting experiences as Brits look to let off steam by burning rubber, attempting circular slides and perfecting doughnuts.”
Indeed, the current popularity of drifting is supported by further data which shows that, overall, drifting experiences have accounted for just over a third of all new bookings over the previous two months despite having a vast array of other driving experiences to enjoy.
Among the other most popular drifting packages which let drivers experience some adrenaline packed sideways action include the Nissan 350Z Bronze Drifting Experience and the Learn to Drift 1 Hour Drifting Experience.
Dan added: “Drifting tests drivers in a completely different way to other driving experiences, not least because you’re looking out the passenger window half the time as you slide round the corners!”
