What is Drift Kidz ?

DRIFT KIDZ is an event designed to provide a ‘motorsport experience’ for youth charities.  A ‘ride along’ passenger experience in a full production Drift Race Car. All safety equipment supplied.

Drifting is a fairly new motorsport which is premiered in New Zealand at the D1NZ Pro/Pro Sport Championships every year.

DRIFT KIDZ, founded by THTGUY Drift (aka Jake Fastnedge), hope’s to provide a transforming experience – thanks to the exhilaration from such a fast exciting motorsport. This technically demanding motorsport code is also challenges attitudes towards how young people drive on the road. Being side-ways at speed, in a controlled safe environment.

The youth selected for DRIFT KIDZ are drawn from the participating youth charity.
