Drifting

Arguably the world’s most visually spectacular and exciting form of motorsport, drifting is an increasingly popular way for petrolheads to express themselves behind the wheel of their car.

We love drifting. Gala Performance were proud supporters of the UK’s leading drift series The British Drift Championship for several years. We were privileged to be the location of the BDC Insider advertisement recording, when Monster Energy driver Luke Woodham and popular star of the game Ian "Bizz" Phillips brought their insane vehicles to our HQ and performed even more insane stunts around our warehouse and compound.

One of the things we have noticed a lot is that the serious players know what it takes to make a true impact in their paddock space. With an increasing focus on making great video content at Drifting events, even more drivers are catching on that to stand a greater chance of featuring in that content and sharing their brand with a potential global audience, they need to stand out not just on the track, but off it as well.

This section of our website is dedicated to the products that we have found are most popular with teams and competitors from the Drift game.  


Popular Products for Drift Competitors

4m x 8m Pro 50 Awning


The Gala Shade Pro 50 Awning is one of the strongest pop-up tents available to the motorsport scene. The huge floor space covered by the tent means that teams can either run a 2-car garage or set up the workshop in one side with a break-out space in the other half.

Popular Option: Use the branding on the canopy and walls to mirror what's on your car for a serious paddock impression.

Swisstrax Modular Flooring

The world's most famous modular garage flooring was brought to the UK by Gala Performance back in 2017, and we remain the UK's original supplier of Swisstrax. The self-draining, non-slip aspects of the flooring mean they are very popular with mechanics and drivers alike for placing beneath a drift car. There are 17 colours available, which mean you can do some great and unique things with it.


Printing on the Awning

As we've said, drifting is a very visual sport, and many teams choose to go for branding with either their team logos, their sponsors' logos, or a combination of both. There are two distinct printing styles available from Gala Performance, with vinyl printing and dye-sublimation, which means we have options for any budget. Learn more about both styles through the button below.

Great Accessories for Drift

A PVC water-filled weight for a track day tent


Water-filled weights are a great way to anchor a motorsport tent, and can be emptied at the end of an event meaning they travel very light.






PVC Banners are a great cost-effective way of promoting your brand and can be created to huge sizes.

Printed flags are another exceptional way of promoting your team or sponsors in the paddock, without breaking the bank.
