FROM ADVANCED TRAINING
Thanks to the clever balance between track selection, the preparation of the cars and instruction techniques proven by 25 years of success, Lapland Ice Driving can guarantee you mastery of drifting in less than two days. The best instructors on the planet have been assembled to offer you completely tailor-made and fully personalised coaching at each of your sessions. Based on your goals and experience, they will adapt the instruction technique and choice of circuits: our single objective: to bring you success, and the ultimate in pleasure.
OBJECTIVE 1 : HOLD THE DRIFT
On a 350- meter diameter, 20-meter wide circle, you’ll learn to maintain a constant drift, first in one direction, then in the other. With more or less angle, and by increasing speed or braking. You’ll also learn to “draw snails”.
By maintaining a two-turn drift, you’ll achieve your LID Bronze!
OBJECTIVE 2 : ENTERING AND LEAVING THE DRIFT
On ovals of 500 by 15 metres, you’ll learn how to trigger the drift for entry into a bend, how to maintain and control the drift following the correct path and emerge from the bend perfectly aligned with the straight! Faster and faster, and increasingly accurately we’ll also introduce you to the famous “Scandinavian Flick”.
By mastering this technique, you’ll achieve your LID Silver!
OBJECTIVE 3 : LINK TURNS
On the 1,5 km, 8-metre wide practice circuit with 15 turns, you’ll learn to drift in a “normal” width. Turns that open and close will allow you to develop your driving control.
By connecting all these drifting turns you’ll achieve your LID Gold!
OBJECTIVE 4 : INCREASE THE SPEED
On the 2,3 km by 8-metre wide technical circuit, you’ll get down to serious business: braking, pins, large curves, straight lines, pif-pafs. Everything comes together, in this step your coach refines your technique before approaching the F1 circuits.
OBJECTIVE 5 : VERY HIGH SPEED EFFICIENCY
Great thrills await you on our 5 Formula 1 circuits: well-mastered, it’s possible to exceed 210 km/h on the straights and 180 km/h through particular turns…. Precision, fast reaction, observation and extreme pleasure. Your coach will imbue in you that search for enduring efficiency.
