We had an awesome day, so much fun! Looking at the video’s last night… it’s amazing the progression throughout the day! I will definitely be looking to do some corporate days for this! Thank you!

Would like to give a big shout out to Sky and his awesome team for organizing this event. The course is well structured and this is by far the most legit way of driving someone else's car sideways without getting impounded. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an adrenaline rush.

Thanks to Sky Zhao and his team for providing such an awesome experience! The team was very professional and supportive which are definitely beneficial for drifters in training. Worth every dollar! Thanks again guys!

Had an absolute blast at Drift Academy - International today! Even if it was only a half day I still learned HEAPS! Shout out to the awesome instructors! If you are wanting to learn more about car control this is the place to do it!
