    As I'm still waiting for my engine to arrive from the machine shop so it can be built and remapped by eop thursday my mind has started to wander onto whats going to happen with BDC returning to Lydden hill...
    Last time Phil would of pulled off some brilliant backwards entries if it wasn't for oil leak causing the clutch problems.... Question is who will pull off the backwards entries this year?
    And Who will not make it round the first corner?

    ...Oh and for the semi pro guys if you've not drifted this track before PLEASE PLEASE! take it easy the first few laps in practice!!
    Last time I only got 3 clear laps at this track (and they were in qualifying) because people were getting stuck in the gravel everywhere and then the t-bone incindent!! so take it easy and lets get some seat time!!

    First time i'll be drifting this track, so first laps will be just seeing how the track actually goes when you're in the car and seeing what grip there is...
    Think the 2nd turn (right hairpin) is more ideal for going backwards :)

    Ha ha, well I'll be shitting it about the top corner, for reasons already mentioned. I've put a passenger seat in so I've got a spotter/witness this time. Fucking LOL tits.

    Just wondering if anyone has any or knows of any good onboard vids of this track? It will be my first time at it so wouldn't mind trying to get an idea before I go. Regardless if there's a chance to go backwards I'll be giving it a shot lol!! :D

    Dylan drifting at Lydden


    Phil's entry!

    It is a really REALLY good track, but another gripe is if you spin on the 3rd final corner then don't keep your foot in and make huge clouds of smoke!! be sensible and keep your eyes open as you come over thi crest of the hill flat out and its blind to whats over the otherside so if there's a cloud of smoke from a spun car.... OUCH!

    Really looking forwards to this!... just really hope my engine is ready in time otherwise i'm screwed and I'll be walking around the track!

    Brad =)

    sorry, that wasn't an impressive entry...

    but it should be doable judging by the flow there.

    Yeah he is 'full attack' until the tires pop... proper skidding..
    Think he's still debating whether to do this weekend or not..

    Has he paid up already? Thought the reserves queue for this round was a mile long?

    Scrubby just like to say that IMO the best driver this weekend has to be you in that e36 savage entry load of early coner angle and very smooth. Top driving

    Kevin Corsius - 100% my favourite driver to watch there. Some of the best entries all day and some great, close twinning. Was good chatting to you after too dude, hope you do go to Silverstone and would love to see you doing the full season here (or, dare I say it, Drift Allstars?) next year.

    Best track/event i've driven so far. Really good organisation, awsome people. AWSOME CROWD!!
    Silverstone might be happening! The rest i've got to see though... Besides getting sponsered oil by Fuchs, i have no other sponsors but me or my parents a bit :) So i'll have to see :)
