Here is an opportunity for Fast and Furious fans and gaming enthusiasts to experience the real deal. New Delhi’s Bad Boi Drifts has set up camp at a Thane track for drift sport events and training, or simply put, drifting. The term refers to a style of cornering where one drives into a corner sideways at a high speed and oversteers. At their set-up this Sunday, the drifters have much to offer beginners, professionals and the curious.

If you’ve been initiated into this motorsport, own a rear-wheel drive car and are in search of a track to sharpen your drifting skills, you can opt for the Arrive and Drive package where participants can practise in a controlled environment with unlimited laps across six hours. Bring along extra tyres; they also offer a tyre-changing station. If you don’t have a rear-wheel drive, opt for the all-inclusive rentals. 

One of the cars you can rent is their custom Mercedes C200 W203 — especially built for drifting, with extra tyres, damages and an instructor to teach you  techniques to control the car for 30 minutes. Absolute beginners or those seeking the thrill of high speed can ride shotgun with a professional driver for two laps. The platform also offers one-on-one training from June at three levels — rookie, semi-pro and pro.
