    Frequently Asked Questions


    Please read these before posting a question that is answered below



    How many tyres do i need ?
    Lots - rule of thumb as many as you can fit in car. There is nothing worse than being at drift day with a working car, empty track and no tyres

    Where can i get tyres from ? Rent spare rims ?
    Contact the chaps @ MINT TYRES.COM

    Where can i get pics of from ?
    Contact Ian @ Blackett Photography

    Can my mates come out for passenger rides ?
    Yup

    How much does it cost ?
    It costs £60 per driver

    Can i pay on the day ?
    No.

    Is it fully booked yet ?
    Once full i will post up 'Fully booked '

    Help it has sold out - what do i do ?
    Book for the next one

    Help I have bought a print at home E ticket online and dont know what to/dont have a printer
    Print your ticket at home. If you do not have a printer you can go in to the office to the right of the main gate to get it printed out.

    Help i have booked but my ticket has not arrived ?
    If your ticket does not arrive in post in time just collect one from main office before you drive up to track

    Help my car has died / i got arrested / my GF is expecting / i crashed so i cannot make it - what should i do ?
    Phone the pod booking office to arrange to get a credit for a future DWYB

    What will the weather be like ?
    Check - Weather Forecast

    What happens if it rains ?
    DWYB will run regardless - you will use less tyres and more petrol

    I want to have a go at the EDC 08 track but not sure about it ? HELP!!!
    Just ask one of the marshals who will hold back the queue and let you out for a few laps at your own pace

    My car is ridiculously noisy what happens if i get told it is too loud to drift ?
    You will be given a credit for another day

    I cannot be bothered to read the 1st post so i'm going to ask a question that has been covered in the 1st post. I need the post count !!
    Please do not be shocked if you are teased as a result. Its all about the seat time , not the post count !1!11!!1

    Do i need a welded diff / Fancy JDM 2-way ?
    a diff that locks both wheels will help - however its not vital for you to come along and have FUN

    Do I need lots of power/ Stage6.9chip/ SuperDuperHybridTurbo/ 2JZ
    Nope.

    If it is hot make sure you drink plenty of water, wear sun tan lotion and spend some time in the shade where possible. I have been at Pod for the last couple of weekends and seen plenty of lobsters walking around. The last thing you want is to be suffering from heat stroke when there's skids to do. :)

    You do not need to use handbrake at all apart from maybe a lil tug on the big track
