    Not so much, TBH. Save some more money. Something like 1.5k more

    That's why it is wise to save some more because 1.5k will only get you either a non running or a terrible bad running car

    Look at prodrift academy or drift limits. They do experience days for drifting.

    Hey :wave:

    Depends on your circumstances and lifestyle tbf.

    Do you have access to a trailer or tow vehicle?
    Have you got space to park a non road legal car?

    If so then £1500 is enough to get you into drifting, well , at least enough to let you know if it's for you or not !

    Buy yourself a cheap mx5 / e36 / e46 / volvo / whatever cheap rwd car you can find, weld the diff, get some free / cheap part worns from a tyre garage and book yourself in at a drift day where you don't need a licence!

    If possible, ask a more experienced driver to sit with you for a couple of laps to give you pointers.

    Everyone is friendly and approachable so don't be afraid to ask. At the end of the day we're all here for the same reason and we all start at some point.

    Have fun
