THE COMP SERIES:

4 Points events, qual-then-tandem comp format, new 3-turn section of thunderhill used each event (including BACKWARDS), and the top points holders will receive qualification to Formula Drift's Pro-Am events! (we're working out the details on this as we speak, more news coming soon)

For Car/Driver Requirements, visit ThunderDrift.com or CLICK HERE

The first event will be held on Sunday February 7th, and will take place from turns 13-10 in a counter-course orientation (see map below)

http://www.laboratory17.com/td1map3.jpg

This course layout will be super fun, but also challenging. The esses approaching turn 11 are deceivingly fast, and turn 11 it's self is a considerable drop in elevation as you pass the apex point. We're expecting a manji in between 11/10 then turn 10 will be an all-out, banked, uphill 90 deg turn for the finish. It should prove to be perfect for some legendary tandem.

Entry is $160 per driver pre-registered. If you show up expecting to enter on comp-day, it's going to be $200, and remember folks if you miss the drivers meeting you absolutely do not drive.

There will be open practice on the competition course all morning (single and tandem), followed by lunch, then a brief comp-meeting and the competition will begin!

Judges = Colin Frost, Todd Ho, and TBA! Wink

We WILL have tire service, and the tire-machine WILL have a new plastic head by then. Prices are $10 dismount/mount and $5 dispose (unless we can take it for our tire-walls... ask us about it)

Saturday will be a full-track drift/grip day, $180 per driver, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask!

Hey everyone! UPDATE TIME!

Competitor Safety Gear checkoff:

- Rollbar: You should already know about the roll cage specs, if you don't, visit the TECH link at the top of ThunderDrift.com.

- Seat/Belt: You must have at least a 4pt harness, and a securely attached seat

All other tech stuff is standard fulltrack. NO LEAKS, good battery tiedown.

ALL CARS MUST HAVE NUMBERPLATES AND WINSHIELD BANNERS! you'll be receiving your kit when you arrive at the track. You'll be getting them at no cost courtesy of NOS Energy Drinks, but if you destroy them, you'll be charged $6 per number and $20 per banner to replace. To get a number, you MUST register by midnight tonight 2/3 (be sure to specify!) If you register after that, you'll be assigned a number. If you'd like to have your numbers magnetic, LAB17 will be offering the service at the track for $10 per pair.

Nice shots, Geoff. Hopefully I'll have my car put back together by summer and can get out to some more events.

Hopefully it is not conflicting with ThunderDrift but FresnoSCCA is putting on a Drift school/practice Feb 27th Saturday. It will be located at the Fresno Fairgrounds. If you want to do some test and tuning then opt out of an instructor otherwise you will get an instructor for the day. Lunch will be provided.
Search YouTube for "Fresno Drift" and you can see the Drift Practice from last year.
ONLINE REGISTRATION HERE
Also, there will be an autocross school on Sunday too.
Price is really GOOD!!!
