Q: Will there be coaching?

you’re new to drifting, we can spend plenty of time with you getting up to speed and if you a seasoned
driver it will be more free form coaching. Mostly you’ll be in the cars with yourself or your friends on

Q: How many cars are there?

A: We have a range of your favourite 90s hero cars, and we pick and choose what’s suitable for the day
and skill level of the group.

Q: How much track time do we get?

A: You won’t be disappointed with the amount of track time! Although you’ll share cars with the group
and rotate through, you’ll get more than your fill. Track days typically go 7/8 hours.

Q: What happens if the car gets damaged while I’m driving it?

A: The beauty of our tour is the bond is part of the fee for the tour.

In true Japanese culture we try to
respect the cars and track.

Reckless driving and ignoring staff directions will not be tolerated.

If this occurs, you’ll need to provide a bond to continue driving and if breached further you’ll be refused
driving privileges.

If you make a mistake and damage occurs you need to pay for parts and reasonable labour to repair.

Q: Can I fly from where I live?

A: Of course, the tour includes flights from Brisbane. We can either fly you from your area if costs are
equivalent or we can subtract flights and you can organise yourself.

Q: Do I need an International driver’s license?

A: We highly recommend you do, but it’s not a deal breaker if not.

Q: How much spending money do I need to bring?

A: Our tour includes food for lunch on the track days, but you will need to bring with some spending and
food money to get through. We recommend getting cash as some rural areas can be hard with card. If
using card, we recommend WISE.

Q: Are there internet connections at the accommodation?

A: Yes, the accommodation does, and we will have a mobile WIFI device with the group during the tour,
we can also show you where to grab an internet sim if you’d like your own.

Q: What’s the sleeping arrangements like?

A: We bunk on traditional tatami mats and futons; the house is communal, and everyone has a blast
hanging together.

Q: Do I need travel insurance?

A: We highly recommend you do, driving race cars is highly dangerous and the tracks have no insurance

Q: Can I do other activities while on tour or stay longer?

A: Yes, we try make the tour as accommodating as possible, if you have a great idea, we can try get the
whole group to check it out. There are also free days where you can explore by yourself. If you want an
extended stay let us know, so we can book the flight.

Q: Do I need a helmet and what type of clothes do I need?

A: We supply helmets if you don’t have one, we recommend bringing one if you have already. That and
closed in footwear is all that is required for track days. March and November get cold, and June is quite
