will you be able to drift or just do the few things listed they show you?my exaust isnt legal,wonder if it would be too loud

Not sure on the Drifty bit but i know Derek (5th Gear) mentioned really loud exhausts would be a problem.

is this on the skidpan or the skid track?

I am thinking of trying to organise one through rick bates driving school, but this is a little cheaper too..

Mind you I cant do anything on Sundays anyway :(

ps if its anything like the rick bates one while they dont exactly call it drifting, its a skidpan car control course, so the idea is to get things a bit crossed up

In the Wet skid pan not the track.
