    Lydden Hill Race Circuit, Wootton, Canterbury, Kent CT4 6RX | T - (01304) 830557 | F - (01304) 831715







    Happy new year to you all
    Theres a few changes for this year so make sure you read the thread properly

    So we're back to bringing you drift days at Lydden Hill in Kent, First date of the year is Saturday 16th Feb

    These days are open to all levels of driver from total newbies to super duper pros everyone is welcome, We will be running allocated sessions according to your driver level so those new to drifting dont have to worry about those pro pushing them round the circuit.



    1- The Day is Open to all levels of driver.

    2-We are running the 3/4 loop circuit which includes the section the BDC used last year, including the plastic walls on the exit of some corners so if you chose you can 'run the wall' (see above pic)


    3-Tyres Services will be on site from 9-5 (£5 PER SWAP, FROM £2.50 A TYRE, £2 DISPOSAL) All tyres will now be disposed of on the day.
    http://www.willsmobiletyres.co.uk/default.htm
    or
    http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Wills-Mobile-Tyres/10636457687?fref=ts

    If you require tyres you must contact Will or put a post up in this thread with your sizes so we have an idea of how many to bring over, Judging how many of each size required is an impossible task, so help us to help help you. Also leaving this to the last min is not helpful, we need as much notice as you can give us so we can be prepared
    Those that want to change your own on site must also be prepared to blow them up too. Dont expect the tyre man to stop working just to do this for you, His primary job is swaps for paying customers.
    A seperate airline + compressor will be placed at the dummy grid for you to adjust your pressures,

    4-You must hold a full UK drivers licence

    5-Passengers are allowed but need to sign in on the day @ £20 for the day


    6-Specators are £5 on the gate, but each pre-booked driver will recieve 2 gate passes

    7-Twinning and trains will be allowed on track too, but you must have permission from the other drivers.

    8-Signing in opens at 7:00am with a drivers briefing at 8:30am which you must attend. Failure to show by this time may mean you are unable to take part and in this case no refunds will be made

    9-Cliping pionts will be laid out on the circuit

    10-Additional drivers can be added on the day at a cost of £20 and needs to be paid directly in the signing in office on the day.

    11-Helmets will be required and can be hired from the circuit and arms and legs need to be cover whilst on track.

    12-We need around 80 cars for the day to proceed, max amount is 100

    13- Sessions, We will be running 3/4 (number dependant) sessions in every hour these are split into Novice, intermidate and pros, we only allow a max of 24 cars on track at once so there is plenty of room between cars

    14- Flags, Last year it was clear to see not everyone obeys the flags, this year we will be far stricter on this. If you are caught on more than 1 occasion ignoring flags you may not be allowed back out on track for the rest of the day. Safety of yourselfs and others around you is Lyddens primary concern. It is your job as drivers to look for the flags!



    Price

    Advanced bookings £99
    On the day £130


    There is no longer the option for paying via paypal, and booking must now go directly through the office or via the website
    To Book Call..... (01304) 830557 (mon-fri 8-5)
    Lydden are building an online option on their website but this hasnt gone live yet as soon as it does i'll update this post with a link to it.
    You can also now call lydden office and place a deposit on your slot but the full balance must be paid before the 15th feb
    Once you have booked please PM me your name so i can put you on the paid list below.
    The sooner you book the easier my life is:smash:



    Refunds will be made up to 2 weeks before the event date or if the day is cancelled due to lack of numbers or extreme weather, other than this no refunds can be made, but you welcome to sell your slot on if you cant make it if you do this please noitify myself and the office.

    Also forgot to add in that the plan is to have a couple of trade stands and an rc track laid out for the rc boys. This is currently unconfirmed though, i'll get it confirmed/denied tmw though.

    I dont think so, i stand by Will sure hes upfront n straight forward/blunt with people but i dont see that as a problem, some people just take it the wrong way. half of it is people attitude towards him though. What you read up top is coming from me not Will,
    He's fast, good at his job and was the only person that would stand with us at the start. CJ and Mint weren't interested to begin with but now we're up and running they want the business of course, People should remember that without Will there'd be no drifting at Lydden, be respectful to him and you'll get the same in return.

    I am always but when he packs up and fucks off an hour before the end leaving at least three of us without rubber to get home on that's bang out of order man. That's what gave me the hump about him.

    There was a reason for this but not something i can share on internet forum. We'll just say personal reasons that were unforseable.

    Don't be taking a pop at me without expecting a reply, I don't think I have ever been approached officially about providing a service at Lydden and to be honest it should always be offered to a local company first. A tyre service is a must at any drift event and the one thing I do know is, It doesn't matter who's doing it as long as there is someone there. Your doing the right thing standing by Will, maybe your mistake is making excuses for him if something goes wrong. If something goes wrong at pod I'm to blame, I don't expect anyone else to carry the blame. Respect is a mutual thing but it has to be earned.

    Not a pop at you or cj tyres. I approached you at pod when i first started drifting back in 2010. You said its too far for you to travel and you wouldnt be able to do dates that clashed with pod which is fair enough as its a mission from pod to dover I also dont make excuses i only deal in facts:thumbs:
