    FAQs



    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

    Can my mates come out for passenger rides ?
    Yup

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

    Can i pay on the day ?
    Yes.

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

    Help it has sold out - what do i do ?
    We hold back 10 tickets at every event as people often do not turn up. Advance tickets are £60 - Pay on day £70

    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 - WeatherForecast

    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

    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.

    Heyup Lex, just looking at the feasibility of being able to make this... if I can, will Mint be in attendance & are they able to supply tyres on the day if required? I've got spares, but there are only so many 285/35/18's you can fit in a Skyline lol :) Will have to check with work first anyways!
    Cheers amigo...

    If anyone from South, Hants, Berks, Surrey, London would like their car transported there and back or maybe has a RWD car this isnt insured/tax'd/MOT'd, I'll take it there and back for £80.

    Peace of mind, chance to try crazy shit and still get home.

    So skint this is the only way I can skid inbetween BDC rounds, bargain deal for £40 each way.
