Welcome to ACDA!

The American Controlled Driving Academy is a partnership between ThunderDrift, Northern California’s longest running drift event, and Faruk Kugay, world renowned European drift event organizer and instructor. Over the years we’ve seen the car control benefits of drifting experience become apparent in everything from day-to-day driving to closed course racing situations. On the street and race track alike, many accidents and mistakes are caused by panic. The way to avoid panic is familiarity, and what we offer provides not only familiarity with an out-of-control car, but the ability to ultimately control that chaos.

Our goal is to provide our customers with a fantastic, thrilling automotive experience in a safe environment. You’ll drive our cars, learn from our seasoned instructors, and have a generally awesome day at the track.
