To safely operate a motor vehicle, it’s important to be aware of your surroundings, especially now that stop signs are obsolete and drivers are required to powerslide through intersections. Prepare for extreme trips to the grocery store with today’s Groupon to U-Drift. Choose between the following options:

• For $37, you get a Learn To Drift experience (a $75 value).
• For $39, you get a Sunset Drift Package (an $85 value).

The skilled staff at U-Drift helps unschooled drivers learn how to perform daredevil drifting maneuvers on 200,000 square feet of asphalt practice track, which features two skill levels of barrel courses and three different drifting routes on the main track. Before diving into the action, motorists meet their very own driftmobile, which will serve as their companion through the entire 20- to 30-minute experience. Once the friendship has been forged, an expert drifter demonstrates the ins and outs of performing slick clutch kicks, power-overs, and triple axels, guiding you through six practice laps to get you ready for off-road driving through corn fields. For thrill-seekers who want to experience the action as a passenger, the Sunset Drift package puts patrons in the hands of a skilled staff driver, promising the same experience while leaving both hands free for liveblogging the event.

U-Drift

Although it looks easy in the movies, the automotive technique known as "drifting" is about more than just smoke and burnt rubber, which is why U-Drift employs professional stuntmen to teach students how to throw their cars into controlled slides. Featured in Vegas Seven magazine, the pros at this auto academy teach e-brake and down-shift maneuvers on U-Drift’s 200,000-square-foot track, and offer instruction packages for drivers of every level. Students hop into a rental car, usually a Nissan 240SX, then drift, burn out, or drive with one foot on the dashboard as they cut loose during lessons. The track also hosts free-style sessions during which drivers can bring their own cars for a fee, however cars must pass U-Drift's inspection to ensure they meet drifting specifications.

Thanks! You guys rock!

U-drift was awesome! Their staff and drivers are very helpful and professional. Driving the cars with the precision that their instructors do is WAY harder than it looks, and they're patient enough to help you figure out how to control the car. I'll definitely go back to U-drift!
