Drift introduction
Jan 2020 • Family
Bought my 12 year old son a drift experience for Christmas and just been to the Birmingham track and it was a great few hours. Staff so friendly and knowledgeable. Made my son feel at ease and took their time helping him get to grips with the car. Highly recommend and have booked to take my son again for a one on one session as he enjoyed it so much.

Great taster experience!
Jan 2020 • Friends
As a Christmas present, my brother and I were given a voucher for the Pro-drift academy 3hr taster session. What great fun! The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Driving time in the cars was just about right for the session and facilities good.
Would recommend to anyone interested in a taster for motorsport or group activities.

Recommended for a great driving experience
Nov 2019
The staff were all really friendly and made you feel at ease. I had great fun trying to drift but found it harder than I expected. You have to do a few things all at once and nearly got it but not quite! It is a really great thing to have a go at if you like driving, something different. The staff are all really passionate about their work and make your experience so enjoyable. I really recommend this as a present for someone. My wife bought me this and I had a great time.

Pro Drift Academy, levels 1-10
Jun 2019 • Business
Hey everyone, I went to the Flatout Factory’s Pro Drift Academy in July and it was actually the experience of a life time. I have to start off by thanking everyone at the Academy, Tom, Yohann, Kenny Nigel everyone. Literally their entire crew were stand up guys and genuinely cared about me the entire time I was there. I flew all the way from NY to Birmingham, and as soon as I was in the area Yohann was asking if there was anything I need or wanted to see or if he could help me out in any way. Other than their genuine compassion for my well being and comfort, the experience was unlike anything I could have imagined. On the first day I completed levels 1-3 and it was a little slow at first, or so I thought. Within 10 minutes I realized that what they were teaching in these stages was essential. You go from 10-15mph in the wet, to around 35mph in the dry the very next day. Now I was a little worried because it was a completely different car, track, and surface for the second day, levels 4-6. But what Yohann has taught me on the first day, carried directly over into the next stage with no change at all with how you’re suppose to use the techniques. And then the next day even harder and faster but still, the way you were taught you could literally go to the next step and barely have to think. What was really incredible was the last day at Teesside, level 10. In just 3 days of driving, I was able to do a 70mph entry and finish the Brittish Drift Championship layout at Teeside. I mean they way that you’re taught and shown why the car does what it does or how to stop it from doing the wrong thing was incredible. My instructor was Yohann for the 4 days and I truly couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. I was stuck on one part for over an hour one day and he never once got upset or frustrated or made me feel bad. He truly was there to teach me and wanted to be there. I drove with Tom up to Teesside and he gave me some great advice about things and lots of encouragement. Their whole crew was incredible and really made sure I was comfortable. Not once did I feel out of place or left out or any bad feelings. These guys seriously know how to teach someone, like me who has never drifted in a professional manner, and get you to be able to drift a professional layout. The entire experience was surreal and I’m 100% going to make another trip out there. I couldn’t have even thought their program was this well thought out. Do not hesitate to make your trip with them, you seriously will not be disappointed. I cannot thank them enough! 5 stars all around.
