Hopefully leaving soon this is turbot into a disaster for us, chris's car is dead I'm just about ready to head to his with a spare fuel pump and il be wading over afterthat. Also please stop raining
Well, I've had a go, went up to Buxton Raceway this afternoon, paid my tenner and then got my drivers briefing.
Massive thanks to John and Miles for their invaluable advice and for being friendly and welcoming. Cheers, much appreciated.
Okay, so there I am lined up ever so slightly terrified. There were loads of cars there with scars to prove how unforgiving the wall can be and believe me it wrecks your car.
So I had a tentative first outing, then got a ride with Matt who was just stunning. Made me feel like a complete novice (which I am really when it comes to drifting). Still I listened and learned and then ventured out a fair few more times and started to increase my speed and play around with the car a bit more. I also remembered to turn up the rear dampers, to 6/8. That all helped and I had a really good afternoon. Was good to finally meet Joe too.
Am thinking of doing a day at Oulton on 8th July (as I'm off anyway) and there is a lot more room, so hopefully Mark can have a go.
Must change those bloody JDM tyres though, as coming up the Cat and Fiddle in the rain, the car was just absolutely lethal.
Great stuff, reckon I could have some fun with this drifting lark.
I sort of did it, maybe for a moment!
Great day again driftone finally had thw confidence to hang the back end out on the top corners ! Was going to stay for some sunday action but the clutch / clutch slave cylinder went on the last run of the day ;(
Good luck tomoz everyone and will see you in the afternoon when i bob bk up
Thanks for a sweet day dudes :-)
I'll be up laters.
ODC. Drift. Train.
I think that's possibly the coolest thing i've ever seen up there.
Have got a few pics from the ODC, but not many others, was too busy out abusing my good tyres (that aren't so good anymores).
Thanks to all for a great couple of days.
realy good experience.
I've put some shots up in the media section! Best Buxton ever IMO !!
definatly the best buxton yet trains and twinning was awsome i cant wait to see some of the vids
Just got home now minus a BMW, now with a ice cold cidre in hand. AMAZING trains, ANAZING ODC, AMAZING twin battles, just fucking AMAZING fun, organised by the AMAZING drift one team who make it all happen.
The tapping that wall (on purpose) is brilliant, whens the next one john i need another fix - hooked!
What an event, the best yet, a massive big up to the drivers as the standard of driving has improved so much as i missed the last 2 events.
From saturday footage of the end of the twinning when all 8 went out nose to tail!
sorry for letterbox footage, forgot to turn my iphone round DOHHHH!!

Also i have uploaded some photos to facebook, don't you just love facebook raping the quality haha!!!
Thanks to Buxton Raceway and Drift One, you guys rock!! Just gotta keep big stu away from those walls haha
Where the hell did that wide arch E36 come from at the end of the day? That was porn!
Just got back in now ! Had an awesome weekend despite not driving today!
Cant believe the amount of damage this weekend though . Hope you all manage to get it sorted out ! Jacko get your train videos up!
Thanks again drift one for the bargain of the century!
Well what do I say.
A brilliant weekend. I wish I lived at Buxton Raceway with all of you and we did this every weekend.
On Saturday the Twin Drift battles were good fun. Nobody dead anyway, which is always a result when we plan these stunts at Buxton.
The 'Train queue' is brilliant. These weekends are the highlight of my life.
Sunday was excellent too. The standard of driving gets better and better from the regular guys, and the newcomers who turned up over the weekend did good too. It's good to see people coming for the first time and appreciating it for what it is and driving accordingly. (Lauren) Keep at it, you'll be flying soon!
Marshals, gate men, signing on people, passenger ride drivers, instructors, I don't know who to thank, but we couldn't do it without you. As I've said before, you know who you are.
ODC stuff will be posted in the ODC section.
GUTTED I couldn't compete today. So pissed off I can't tell you. But I'll fix it.
No prisoners next time. Rich.
