I can't believe I'm starting the thread for the 6th event this year up at Buxton already. Where does time go?
This event is at Buxton raceway, about 3 miles from Buxton town at SK17 0RR.
And it's a tenner to get in per adult, a tenner to drift and a tenner to be a passenger. Per day.
The ODC competition is on Sunday afternoon but more and more people are spending the weekend here, it's a great atmosphere and great fun.
The timetable will be something like this:
Saturday. Drift practice from 1 pm. If there are enough entries we will run a 'just for fun' Team drift event late on (6 ish).Don't worry if you're coming on your own and want to enter, you'll soon make some friends here. If there are still people wanting to drift we'll stay open til 7.
There will be a tyre van, £5 per rim to change tyres, there will be tyres available from £2.50 each.
Practice sessions are tailored to drivers ability. If you are new and want to go out alone that's fine, let us know. If you're with a mate and want to practice twinning then queue up together and let the gate men know. You'll see the regular guys going out in huge trains, I've seen 14 or more, quite something.
Saturday night. Bar open until late. Mayhem and daft games all night. Camping free. There are good clean toilet facilities for a wash in the morning but no showers or hot water.
Sunday. Circuit opens at 12 for practice. Then at 3 we start the fourth Buxton ODC round of the year. This will be on a different track layout to whatever practice track we've had and is open to everyone as it is also the qualifying for the Twin Drift Battle afterwards. Obviously only ODC competitors will get the ODC points. This is worth staying to watch, some very fierce competition!
There will be a minimum of an hour's practice afterwards if you aren't competing.
There's a burger van on site and a bar open. Anyone thought to be drinking and drifting will be breathylised. (Never had to do it yet!)
£10 per day to get in for every adult. £10 to put your car on track (per day), and £10 to be a passenger. Kids get in free. Passenger rides available.
When you park up PLEASE leave the grass at the top of the paddock area for campers, it's not much fun trying to pitch a tent on the rocky carpark.
Anyone caught thrashing around wildly anywhere except on the track will be asked to leave the venue. No exceptions and no refunds.
Please read the timetable above and understand what you are coming to. Also the competition is open to EVERYONE so don't worry about your level of ability, you're welcome to have a go.
