The Prodrift Academy UAE, the home of professional drift training in the Middle East, has just announced its 2018-2019 Drift King training dates.

This 3-day training program is an ideal learning platform for beginners and amateur drifters who want a head start on their professional drift career. It is also an ideal training platform for race drivers who want to increase their overall skill set.

The program is designed by a professional drift team and based on professional drift techniques. In all, a student will learn 30 drift techniques over the 3-day drift training program.

Not only will a Prodrift student receive professional drift training but they will be immersed in the lifestyle and history of the Prodrift brand.

We would like to extend an open invite to all drift fans and petrol heads and welcome them to this amazing experience in the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Dubai.

Objective

The objective of the Prodrift Academy Drift King program is to take our students on an unforgettable drift adventure while educating them on the sport of professional drifting through track and classroom training.

Students will be able to see their progress by completing a set of techniques each day and with the use of onboard Go-Pro footage that they study with their drift coach.

Our extensive drift training program has been developed over 8 years and offers incredible value and knowledge to our dedicated students.

All Prodrift Academy students are built on a successful 4 step process.

  1. Offline
  2. Consistency
  3. Online
  4. Precision

Training Format

Our first task with any student is to teach them the basic fundamentals of drifting. To understand how a drift car works before putting their drift skills to practice on our drift training track. How to slide a car, drifting circles, figure of eights etc.

In order to achieve the fundamentals, we use a mechanical to natural training method. From drifting with a set of simple instructions to drifting naturally.

With each new day of training, the student learns a new set of techniques and quickly progresses through our 9 level training program.

Prodrift Academy student testimonial’s

Student: Ian Russell     Country: Thailand

“I would like to say a big thank you to Graham, Umar & Ruel for a truly fantastic & unforgettable experience whilst completing the 3-day Drift King training programme at the Prodrift Academy desert training facility in Dubai. It was an action packed 3 days of intensive drift training. Progressing though the 9 individual levels wasn’t easy but with the fantastic knowledge, training & support from all the guys at Prodrift i managed to progress through all 9 levels learning new skills & techniques at each of the levels.
The Drift King training programme has provided me with the professional skill set that I need to move forward in the world of drifting. The guys at Prodrift really know how to look after their students on & off track, the guys looked after me from the moment i arrived in Dubai until the moment i departed.
If anyone is thinking of taking up drifting or is looking to improve their drifting skills i highly recommend getting in touch with the guys at Prodrift Academy UAE you won’t regret it.
I am now looking forward to returning for my next Prodrift experience & completing level 10: Professional Championship track layout in the very near future.
Thanks again guys fantastic job enjoyed every minute of it”

“Master driving at Prodrift academy and epic burnouts are a walk in the park. What you might not realise is the 1st time I did a burn out in the Demon was London start. Without the skills, prodrift academy gave me this would not have been possible. Apart from being the most fun, you can ever have, it makes you such a better all round driver
