This year, a lot of fun and interesting projects are scheduled on Autogespot. Especially for you! We're organizing several events including Cars & Coffee in the Netherlands. We recently also started a cooperation with Motion Drive. Always wanted to experience a sports car or exotic car on the track? That's possible this year! This winter, they will first organize a few driving trainings in which we recently participated. It's the ultimate experience of controlling a sports car or exotic car.
What's more fun than driving? As a petrolhead you probably can't think of something else. Unfortunately not everybody has the chance to drive or own a sports car. Are you just as curious what it feels like to drive a sports car? Next year we will organize several events in cooperation with Motion Drive where you can take place behind the steering wheel of one of Motion Drive's sports cars. Next few months we will release some more information about these events. Next to that, we will visit some of the bigger cities with these sports cars to show you what a sports car feels like.
Keep following Autogespot and our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram for updates. For questions and registration you can send an e-mail to: MotionDrive[at]Autoegspot.com. You can also find more information on the website of Motion Drive.
At 28 November we were expected at a deserted airport in the middle of Germany. During the night snow has fallen which created the perefct conditions for the Motion Drive Drift event. This event has a morning and afternoon program to improve your driving skills but also give you the chance to drive a real sports car. A few lovely cars were waiting for us, several Porsche 911s, Audi R8s and a lovely Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. Next to that, you can take place on the passenger's seat of a Corvette Z06 for some drifting with the founder of the company. Thanks to the snow, we don't need to use the slippery tracks which you normally use for drifting. The first program consists three exercises. The first one is getting a feeling of the brakes of the car on snow. Next to that you will get a better feeling of the acceleration of the car. The following exercise is a slalom to get a better feeling of the car and try a small drift. During the day the exercises get harder and harder.
After a delicious lunch we get the chance to take out the Audis in the snow. No specific track, just having a lot of fun. With the snowy conditions it's easy to start a drift with the Audi R8. It's a lot of fun playing with the throttle of such a powerful car. It becomes a bit harder when the snow starts to melt but with this much power it's still not that hard.
After lunch it's time for a more serious exercise. The new exercise is the first real drift. At first you will need to steer through a chicane at around 50 kph, steer to the left and make the car drift with some extra throttle. Those who watch videos of drifting every now and then will think that it's easy but we can tell you that it's not as easy as it looks. It's the art of keeping balance between the throttle and the back of the car. The cars used by Motion Drive are ideal for a first introduction to drifting. Some of the people are flooring the pedal too hard and immediately spin instead of starting a drift. After this excercise it's time for another excercise where you need to control the throttle. On a slippery track we had to steer right and immediately left to bring the car in imbalance. After this we had to keep the car sideways in a drift and eventually correct the drift and get the car straight. With this excercise we find out the difference between drifting in a Porsche or Lamborghini. A Lamborghini has a more high-revving engine and is harder to control. The Porsche 'only' has 300 hp and is more refined and easier to control in a drift.
These excercises aren't just a lot of fun, they're also very instructive. It's possible that you will lose control of your car and don't know what to do. With such driving training events you get triggered and learn how to deal with such situations.
Next Spring and Summer, several events are organized on the Spreewaldring in Germany where we offer special packages by Motion Drive & Autogespot. A discount or maybe a package with even more options. Is it your dream to drive a Porsche, Ferrari or Lamborghini? Don't wait! You can register yourself via MotionDrive[at]Autogespot.com!
