After a few discussions myself and the team who run the ODC have decided on the entry criteria for the 2011 season
there has been some issues with who holds what liscence etc and the validty of liscences that have been dished out over the years
So for 2011
the competition is open to any one who did not compete in any form of professional drift competition during the 2009 + 2010 season and who does not hold a valid BDC or Pro Drift Liscence
this keeps a 2 year buffer between us and the BDC as we feel 2 years out of the BDC and you will be well below the standard they are driving at currently.
for 2011 we are running 2 classes
Class A - Drivers who have competed in any form of pro drift competion before 2009, drivers who have been drifting for numerous years and has a high skill level, the top 15 drivers from the 2010 ODC final
Class B - Drivers who have never competed in any form of pro drift competition, drivers who have only been drifting a short period of time, drivers who them selves or you venue organiser feels you will be suited in the B class
The 2011 ODC class B winner will move up in to class A for 2012
where as the 5 people with the lowest scores from class A in the qualifying rounds will move down in to class B
Most venues will be be running a series of rounds and you need to have scored in a minimum number of rounds to have a chance of qualifying for the final
For instance a venue holds 6 qualifying rounds and you have to score at minimum of 3 rounds for your scores to count towards you qualifying for the final
after the venue has finished their rounds the 5 people in each class with the highest overal scores from the rounds progress to the final
Each venue will post up a thread with how they will be carrying out their qualifying i,e how many rounds they will hold and how many you will need to score in to qualify.
Safety requirements for the qualifying rounds will be issued by the venues organiser as its their insurance policy.
in most cases it will be your normal drift day requirements there is no manditory cages etc as there will be NO TWINNING.
In the new year we will email all entrants to find out what class best suits you. all of the entry criteria from above will be taken in to account when deciding what class you will go in to.
people will be found out if they portray them selves as being shit etc and then in their first qualifying round are hitting backwards entries, running the walls and are just MM off the cliping points will be moved up in to Class A
Anyone wishing to compete in the 2011 UK ODC Competition will have to be a registered member so sign up in the other thread.
any questions are welcome
