IMPACT’s newest and most exciting leisure destination has just opened for business – IMPACT Drift Park.
Located in the City’s Rama 4 area IMPACT Drift Park brings “drifting” – one of the most widely followed and popular sports in Thailand – to the biggest possible audience who can participate and enjoy all the same thrills the Kings of Drift enjoy.
“Drift Karting” is absolute fun for everyone of all ages, it’s all about powering your kart into the biggest drift you can achieve without spinning out – you have to find just the right balance.
Our specially designed track, unique electric drift karts and a world first electronics monitoring system that measures the position of the karts fifty times a second means you have to hook it all together and score points on every corner of every lap – it’s not just about going fast.
IMPACT Drift Park is the latest step in IMPACT’s new strategy to introduce world class leisure experiences, explains Director of Leisure & Entertainment, Ms Piyathida Thurachon. “We introduced IMPACT Speed Park a year and a half ago and it’s been a real hit attracting not just locals and people from the wider Bangkok Metropolis but also many tourists who already know about it before they come to Thailand and put it on their ‘to do’ list when they come here.
“That success made us stop and think how we could leverage the concept in a new direction and we decided to create an experience where everyone could enjoy drifting, using the flexibility and durability of the world class electric kart platform we introduced to Thailand for the first time at IMPACT Speed Park as well the extra benefit their zero emissions as this new facility is indoors, but technically revised for the new application,” she continues.
“We have broken the mould to create an experience that users won’t forget – and we hope, just like the repeat custom we have built at IMPACT Speed Park that IMPACT Drift Park will also be one they will want to come back to many times,” Ms Piyathida adds.
The new track is supported by an expansive leisure zone with sofas, timing screens that relay split second updates lap-by-lap and panoramic views of the circuit as well as delicious cuisine at the captive “Drift Café” – and just like IMPACT Speed Park it’s going to be in operation 365 days of the year.
