    Hello mate i'm in eastleigh. Have been getting into it over the last year or so. Got myself rb powered s14a but s body life has taken over and i seem to be spending most of the time under it rather than in it doing skids :cry: Still its nearly there :thumbs:
    What did you think of matchams? i've not been there as don't really fancy the ring and have heard the drift track they've got there is pretty pot holey and has broken many a half shaft. is that still the case?

    Hi bud nice one. What rb have u got in it? The bottom line with matchams is it is rough at the top of the track, so I don't normally drift that section but the bottom is smooth enough.
    You get loads of seat time and it's very cheap around £25 for 3 hours driving so essentially u get what you pay for.
    I'm looking to do smeartharpe & pod during this winter too.

    Yeah it's worth a look. Ah that's normal Nissan ownership!
    Yeah I'm looking at pod in November which will be my first in my car.
    I went up a few years back in a friends ae86 which was fun but didn't get onto the big track so would be good to get onto that.

    I live in Cadnam near Southampton and have a 14a. All of my mates have 13's and one has an r33 and regularly go to pod and gunna do the next rockingham infield day. Matchams has recently had all the pot holes filled apparently but haven't tried it yet as I folded up a steering arm last time I was there

    Cool I'm looking at doing the next smeartharpe drift day in Oct with my 32 then hopefully going to pod in November.
    They had filled the pot holes in at matchams but others have appeared now unfortunately.
    Shame if it had a decent surface it would be a fun little track.
