    Myself and the MPG Events team ran our first drift day at RAF Throckmorton in Worcestershire yesterday and we're really pleased to say that it went well! We are looking to run regular monthly practice days in 2013.

    To give you an idea of the size of this place, i think the highest recorded entry speed was 90mph by Huxley in his E36.

    Here are some pictures for you to check it out, i'll also add any video footage so you can get an idea of the type of tracks we'll be having at Throckmorton.
    Make sure you like the MPG Events facebook page to hear about future drift days.... Welcome to Facebook

    MPG Events Ltd - Ladies Drift Day - YouTube


    It was primarily a ladies day however a few male drifters were invited along as it was also a test day to see what we could get out of the big track area :)

    Had a look through my mate Fraz's photos with him last night, he's got some sick shots from the fast track. Hopefully he'll have them sorted this eve. :thumbs:

    Lozza!
    Don't suppose you know if there's any pics of the play pens or more from on the kidney track? Most of the pics so far have been out on the fast track which a fair few people didn't go out on :)
