    Saturday 30th November 2013 Last one of the year


    There will now be 5 groups running 10min session instead of 4 groups at 15mins. There will be a short lunch break and we'll be running til about 16:00

    If this date doesn't have enough bookings by the 15th Nov we'll cancel this date. If you want to do it but don't get paid until after the 15th give lydden a call so we have a good idea or numbers.

    There is now only 20 cars per group not 24

    Price is now £100 for the day (not £120 as it dark early)

    Groups are as follows.....

    PROS..... You hold a BDC licence or similar, are pulling high speed entries in the devils elbow (3rd/4th gear) and capable of drifting the whole circuit at speed. (not suitable for low power cars)

    PROS/INTERS..... You hold a BDC licence/similar or you are a capable drifter with a lot of experience of drifting high speed tracks, pulling entries into devils elbow in at least 3rd gear and can comfortably drift chessons at a good speed. (not suitable for mx5's & other low power cars)

    INTERS.... You have experience of drifting bigger tracks and are capable of linking from the elbow to the main straight at lydden. Suitable for 2nd/3rd gear entries into the elbow. (all cars welcome)

    NOVICE/INTERS..... You have a less than 10 days skidding under your belt can link corners but don't yet enter a drift at high speed, 2nd gear clutch kicks into the elbow. (all cars welcome)

    NOVICE..... You have done a bit of skidding but are still new to it/ its your first time on a bigger track (all cars welcome)

    1- The Day is Open to all levels of driver. Please use the decription above to try and decide which group you belong in, If we get fully booked you might not have the chance to change groups.

    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'

    3-Tyres Services will be on site from 9-5 (£5 per tyre change, from £2.50 for a part worn, £2 per disposal) All tyres will now be disposed of on the day.

    or

    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 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 1 gate pass, your free entry must arrive with the driver.

    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. Please try to arrive as early as possible the circuit goes live at 9am and none likes missing there first session.

    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. Additional driver will be placed into the same group so you have to share your seat time. If you wish to car share and go in seperate groups this requires a second pre-booking at £120

    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- 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!

    To Book Call Lydden Hill Office on 01304 830557

    Refunds can be made up to 2 weeks before the event, If you cannot make the event you must call lydden and let them know, they normally allow people to swap to another date. You cannot sell your slot privately anymore we normally end up with a big reserve list for these dates so to make it fair you can no longer sell privately.

    Any Questions please ask and dont forget to add us on Facebook for videos and pictures of the events we run........... http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/southwall.smokers

    I went drifting 2 times at pod. Well 1.5 time really due to car breaking. Do you think that good enough for the novice group? I went to see the weekender and the novice group seemed pretty good. Just a bit worried so I don't muck everyone over.
