Learn How to Drift at K1 Speed

When we announced Drift Night last year, 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 in 2019 for more action.


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.

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 MX-5



“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



So, there you have it! Start learning those drift skills without crashing your ride like this guy – get to the K1 Speed track near you during Drift Night next Monday! Try to get there as close to 5pm (or even a little earlier) to secure your spot, has races are first-come, first-served – just like our Arrive & Drive racing.

    When is K1 Speed going to start tracking the top 100 fastest lap time for each track?

    Competition is key in our spot.

    • Staff Writer

      Not a bad idea, Jon! We’ll look into that. In the meantime, be sure to check the track portion for each location to see what the current lap records are!

    Will you ever do a drift night on the weekend?

    • K1 Speed Staff Writer

      Unfortunately that is not currently in the calendar.

  • Todd Pierce

    Well it should be.

    • Staff Writer

      We’ll keep that in mind, Todd!

  • Sean O

    Why are you ending drift night? I have yet to make it out on a Monday. Been dying to try it

    • Staff Writer

      Just the last one for the year – not forever! We’re planning on doing 4-5 of these each year since it can affect the track for a little bit afterwards. Normally we’d do another one around December but it’s a very busy month for us with holiday events. So don’t worry – you can expect it back early next year!
