Jared Campbell, New Zealand

I did the 3 days at Ebisu in Japan. It was my first time drifting and my first time to Japan. Sky and Tux really made the whole experience amazing. They not only taught me to drift well enough to link corners, but they made sure every day was full of experiences. We stayed in a traditional Japanese Spa Resort and enjoyed the culture to the full. Every day there were surprises we didn't expect and it all added to an unforgettable experience. Without a doubt the best holiday I have ever had and would recommend it to anyone. We got to meet Drift royalty, experience real Japanese culture, do hot laps with Daigo and Sky. Too many amazing aspects to mention them all. I would highly recommend this for the skills you'll learn but also for holiday and experiences. I will do this again!!! 

Peter Hansen,  New Zealand  

Best fun I ever had, and I loved every minute of the trip! It was my just time to be in Japan, and see the car culture myself with Sky's team is mind blowing, we went to Ebisu Circuit for 3 days drifting, I have learn a lot myself, so stocked to have Daigo Saito as a teacher, and we shared a couple of drinks afterwards, we also did many things outside of drifting like visiting Daigos crazy workshop and RWB HO is one hot spot where everyone want to check out in person. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to learn drifting or even just want to experience the true Japanese Culture! Thanks for the fantastic trip Sky and rest of the team!
