Hey Reza,

You are welcome to share a car, but you'll both need to register and pay full price. We'd put you in 2 groups, but the problem with that is that one of you would have to be in the beginner group and one in the advanced. Are either of you advanced drifters?

I mean to share a car, just 1 run group. We will share the registration fee.

Thanks,
Reza

Attention all participants. Registration is now closed, but the event is not full. If you still want to drive, the non pre-regged price is $220 cash at the track.

THIS IS AUGUST AT THUNDERHILL! it WILL be very hot. Remember to wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water! t-hill has 2 big permanent canopies, so everyone can get shelter under there... NO TRAILERS ALLOWED UNDERNEATH THE CANOPY! There is a limited amount of space, and we want it filled with people, not trailers. The only trailer that will be parked under the canopies is Luke's, and that's because it'll be the official party-spot monday night.

THE DRIVERS MEETING WILL BE AT 8:45AM SHARP
We want to have a hot course at 9:00AM, so NO LATE-COMERS will be tolerated. I'm absolutely serious about this, if you miss the drivers meeting, you don't drive.

Making the drivers meeting should be very easy, because we're inviting you all to enjoy an evening at the track including watching F&F on a big-screen, hawaiian-style hospitality, and camping afterwards. Everyone is welcome to show up whenever they want on Monday, but will only be allowed inside the park once the current day's event is over at 5:00PM.

THE SCHEDULE FOR THE DAY IS AS FOLLOWS
(we'll have paper-versions of this available for you at the track)

08:45 - Drivers Meeting
09:00 - Grip
09:25 - Beginner Drift
09:50 - Expert Drift
10:15 - Grip
10:40 - Beginner Drift
11:05 - Expert Drift
11:30 - Grip

11:55 - LUNCH

12:55 - Grip
01:20 - Beginner Drift
01:45 - Expert Drift
02:10 - Grip
02:35 - Beginner Drift
03:00 - Expert Drift
03:25 - Grip
03:50 - Beginner Drift
04:15 - Expert Drift
04:40 - END

We're left with 20-min at the end of the day, maybe we'll do something fun with that time. I've got a few ideas...

PASSENGERS will be $15, and must be at least 18yrs old.

SPECTATORS (EVERYONE not driving) will be $5 at the gate.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call me. I'll be online very sporadically between now and the event, so if it's important, be sure to call. I'm in Portland right now on my way home from FD Seattle!

Yeah, that was a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to the next one. Very Happy I guess I didn't have game because there are no pix of me Laughing

I started feeling pretty comfortable by the 3rd session and by the end of the day, I was able to sustain a drift all the way through turn 2, so I was pretty happy with that. Turn 10 and 11 are the most fun, though. A couple times, I managed to drift over the crest of 5 and swing the backend around so that I drifted down the hill into 5a. That was pretty fun, but I need more practice to get the timing right. OK, i'm hooked now. hehe

If anyone is thinking about trying out drifting, I recommend it highly! Throw a set of craptastic all season tires on your rear wheels, put the rear shocks on full stiff and go have some fun. The hardest part is remembering not to drive the racing line!
