Learn to drift like a pro.
From its origins on the streets to high-profile Irish Drift Championship events in Mondello Park, drifting is currently the most-watched and followed motorsport in Ireland.
The Drift Games Experience is your initiation into the adrenaline-filled world of drifting. In a powerful, purpose-built Nissan 350Zs, drivers will experience cool drifting techniques with a professional instructor alongside.

Learn to handbrake turn and wheelspin your way around our Autotest course in the shortest time possible. Go head to head against a rival on our slalom course.
The Mondello Park based Road Safety programme EARLY-DRIVE was set up in 2004 by Mondello Park and the Irish School of Motoring to provide a new type of young driver safety awareness programme aimed primarily at Transition Year Second Level students.
The EARLY-DRIVE course requires no previous driving experience.
The idea was to use the extensive Mondello Park facilities combined with the training expertise of Irish School of Motoring to demonstrate driver safety in a new and practical manner to young people prior to them becoming drivers.
These aims have been achieved with a mix of classroom, practical sessions and demonstrations which result in students becoming safer pedestrians, cyclists and ultimately drivers.
