    EVENT UPDATE


    This is happening on the 28th & 29th September which unfortunately is the grand opening of Driftland which I am sure was in no intention of clashing more than likely it's the only date they could get for this new venue. Straightliners are a awesome bunch of people they have made Smeatharpe a much better event for us southwesters.

    Anyway Straightliners have just asked me to run the track at Kirkbride airfield so who wants a weekends worth of drifting? All I know so far is it's similar venue as Smeatharpe and we have 2 days to run it. The rules will be the same as we run at Smeatharpe so upto 4 cars on track and can be twinning or in a 4 car train if they are advanced enough and the track is not too fast.

    I have no idea what the surface is like and only 2 weeks to make a plan of action so would be looking for a crew of marshal's to help with the weekend and setting up on the Friday. A tyre van would be good although I appreciate real late notice.

    How many drifty locals are there around this area? A few I can see posted up on here: can we rally some troops to make this work? Get a tyre van sorted etc?

    Yes it will be fine for beginners, hopefully there's enough room to put in a playpen like Smeatharpe.

    It's not going to be very busy so you'll get silly amounts of seat time although no tyre van there atm.
