Learn How to Drift – Come Out For Drift Night at K1 Speed!
When we announced Drift Night in 2018, we were amazed by the interest we had all over the country! Thousands of racers loved throwing our transformed drift karts sideways into a turn and mastering the art of the drift. And now, Drift Night is back for it’s SIXTH year at K1 Speed!
The cost for Drift Night is the same as our regular Arrive & Drive racing which means if you have races stored on your account, you can use those credits towards this monthly event.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the challenging nature of this experience, this is only for racers that meet our adult kart requirements. Children who typically race in our junior karts will not be able to drift, but they can still race regular Arrive & Drive races during Drift Night.
Remaining Drift Night Dates in 2023 (Subject to Change):
Monday, April 17th
Monday, July 24th
Monday, October 23rd
5:00pm to Close
Not available at Bend, Boise, Canton, Fairfield, Myrtle Beach, Oxford, Phoenix, or Rohnert Park.

What the Formula Drift Pros Say
“It’s pretty awesome! It’s a great challenge to slide the karts and definitely a great entry to drifting…you actually have to learn a little bit of the kart physics. Driving is driving – you got to keep your eyes up and try to win the battle.”
– Kyle Mohan, Driver of the #99 Mazda RX-8
“The karts are super fun! It teaches you to be very light with the pedals and keep a nice and tight line throughout the course. Takes a little bit of finesse and actually reminds me of the early days of drifting. You gotta start somewhere!”
– Chris Forsberg, 3x Formula Drift Champion, Driver of the #64 Nissan 370Z
