    Great drifting experience. Fabs is a really good instructor; very friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating. The new layout of the drift track is awesome; a good mix between slow and high speed turns with 2 donuts (small and medium).

    Would give a 6th Star if I could!
    Visited drift limits 08/03/2023. Had an amazing day and with tuition from the professionals managed to pull off some great drifts. I was put with Phil in the 350Z and he went above and beyond to help me achieve what I came here for, it's staff like this that make the visit extra special and have made me book another day even if it is 3 hours away!

    Fantastic day out trying out a great selection of supercars. All the staff were exceptional in their professionalism, attitude and enthusiasm. No hard-sells for the extras, and provided helpful recommendations regarding the selection of cars. Special shout out to Rian.

    Very fun(drifting)
    I had great time at drift limits and 350Z drift experience. Everyone there seemed very friendly and the instructors are great. I had Fabs(apologies if the name is misspelled) as an instructor for drifting and he was great, very knowledgeable and explained everything very clearly and helped me progress quite a lot through the laps.

    Excellent day
    100% book this place. I brought the 4 car experience for my other half and he loved it. The intro was all the info you needed and the staff kept up with some good driving banter. His 1st instructor Phil was just the person you want. He really encouraged him to trust himself, was a laugh, and gave good advice. His final instructor was fugus (hope that's right) he was fab. Made him push the boundary, made him feel comfortable. Absolutely great morning and we will definitely be returning in the summer. Thanks

    We had an amazing morning drifting yesterday. The whole team were friendly and professional especially Fabio who looked after me as my instructor. He was excellent, friendly, passionate about what he does and passes on his knowledge with fun and expertise. Can’t wait to go back!

    Unbelievable fun!
    23-3-23 Jack - By far the best driving experience I have ever done. The staff were very friendly, very good briefing, awesome hot lap, followed by the most fun I’ve had in a car. I had the drifting experience and my instructor Fabs was amazing, very enthusiastic, brilliant at explaining what I needed to do, and by the end he had me transitioning the whole track. Many thanks Fabs you were awesome mate, would definitely recommend him, top lad.

Beware of rebooking fees, they are extremely high! I had booked a driving day for my daughter as a christmas present. Drift limits cancelled by email two days before the original date and i was offered a chance to rebook. I had to rebook to a later date and unfortunately my daughter suffered an injury 10 days before and was unable to take part. We asked to rebook, but was told there was a 50% re-booking fee, which seems very unfair. I would advise to look elsewhere or to try to go for a booking where cancellation fees are waived. I will definitely not rebook for personal or company days , will look elsewhere.

My girlfriend bought me a track experience in a single seater with Drift Limits for my birthday. I arrived on the day and the weather was absolutely horrible. I had previously done a single seater track experiance at Brands Hatch years ago so, on the day, I requested to change to a different car. I was told that this would not be a problem. I called my girlfriend and she was absolutely happy for me to do whatever I wanted so, i asked the girl on reception which cars were available in the price bracket that my girlfriend had paid for. I was taken outside and shown a Ferrari, a Lamborghini and a McLaren. I chose the Lamborghini. The girl said, that is fine but there was a bit of a wait while they got the car ready. I was totally cool with that as it was me that had changed plans. After around half an hour I was told that the girl had made a mistake and that the cars that I had been shown were £50 more. I explained that this was disappointing as I had been specifically shown the cars that were in the correct price bracket. I asked that the fee be waivered and was curtly and abruptly told NO. I thought this was poor customer service and, even after I suggested a compromise was still told "no" so there was no remorse, admission of a mistake or compromise to be had which I found disappointing and left a bad taste. I understand people make mistakes and I wasn't asking for anything unreasonable but to be flatly denied with no explanation or apology was poor bearing in mind my girlfriend had spent hundreds of pounds for me to be there. I reluctantly paid the £50 extra (I never told my girlfriend this!) Anyway, after that the day could not have been better. I was introduced to JC who was brilliant. He was very knowledgeable and clearly a skilled driver. He told me about the Lamborghini, its history, its performance statistics and other interesting information. He is clearly a passionate petrol head and very professional, patient and polite. He said that no-one in the office had wanted to take me out in the Lamborghini in the pouring rain but he stepped up to the plate so that I wasn't disappointed again for which I am very grateful to him for. He drove us to the lower circuit which he said was better to showcase the Lamborghini (and probably safer for him and the car as it has more run-off in case I came over all "thinking I am Lewis Hamilton" and ran out of talent!). Anyway, we swapped over and I drove the car. Absolutely incredible. I never felt JC was holding me back, in fact he was encouraging and supportive. JC also helped out with a few photo's of me and the car which I appreciated hugely. Thank you to the Drift Limits team, my girlfriend, Lamborghini and, in particular, JC for a great afternoon.

Booked the f1000 experience for my boyfriend and it was great.

Began the day with checking in and filling in waivers. We then had a safety briefing.
Our instructor for the experience was a grey haired man and he was great.
We got taken on the 'magic bus' which was great to the course.

He loved the experience so would definitely go again. A great gift for f1 fans.

The only thing worth mentioning is that I struggled to book the experience as I couldn't get through to the company through email or phone number, however the live chat came to the rescue.

Fab.

Booked the passenger experience for my son as a birthday gift. He was in the car for less than 4 minutes. Perhaps 1.5 laps and then it was over. Super disappointed that it was such a short experience.

I booked 2 courses back-to-back at Drift Limits on 21st December - the Lotus Evora Thrill and MX5 Drifting. Whilst I was disappointed to learn that the Evora wasn't available on the day I attended, I was given a choice of all of the available cars (and another couple of laps to make up for the Evora not being there), so I switched to an Audi R8 and had a great time - my instructor Sam was very easy going and put me at ease throughout the drive and encouraged me to get the most out of the experience! I also had a fun time learning the basics of drifting from Rishi in the MX5! I'm looking forward to returning when the Evora is available again.

Absolutely amazing day with a super friendly and welcoming team, we will definitely be back soon to try drifting.

Paid for my Dad to have the experience for a birthday gift. Was told he could drive an Aston Martin, got there and was told the car was already in use!!!! Also paid for photos to be done, was told they would take 3-5 working day to be sent via email. Contacted them after 2weeks to be told the photos and videos were not done (CLEARLY SEE THEM TAKING PHOTOS) save your money. Very rushed, very restricted, would have rather kept the money. No phone lines email only. Shamble of s**t!!! NEVER AGAIN!!!!

Supercar experience: I had about the worst experience you can have from anything like this from the sound of it. I wasn't allowed to pick the car, I was encouraged to drive suburban Street slowly and the experience was over in 10 minutes. Forced to pick automatics. Couldn't use the shifter.
I'm into cars but this experience has honestly put me off them entirely.
All the fun sucked out of it.
I went in a group of 4 and the others sing praises, given choice of car, encouraged to drive the track as a track day, pointers to go faster, freedom and fun.
So so let down.
If you go you've got this risk of wasting £100 for a bad time.
