View Full Version : Drift Day Comp 8 - August 16

08-06-2009, 12:24 PM
Here's the official info (copied from drift day's forums):

The format is the best of its kind!

It will be open for all skill levels including beginners to top amateurs.

How is that possible? You ask...

5 increasing levels of competition.

-All drivers will pay $30.00 and participate starting at:

1. Donut competition
2. Figure 8 competition
3. Small 2nd gear course
4. Advance technical 2nd/3rd gear course
5. High speed advance course

If you fail to advance to the next level, the judges will award the driver who performed best in each category. You will not be awarded anything simply because you do not have the funds to advance.

Some drivers may elect to bypass 1-3 if they:
-Pay the optional full price fee of $130.00
-The driver is considered an advance driver. (Pro Am final invitee or D1 licensed driver). No FD licensed drivers are permitted to compete.

-Prizes will be determined shortly.

Thank you and enjoy.

When: August 16th - Sunday
Where: El Toro

08-07-2009, 02:41 PM
This is a neat idea.

I'd probably be knocked out after round 2. lol

08-07-2009, 03:35 PM
If I go can I bypass 1-3? I think I'm an advance driver just with low hp.

08-07-2009, 03:40 PM

08-07-2009, 04:55 PM

08-07-2009, 05:07 PM

08-07-2009, 05:26 PM
for vert, i think you may need a roll bar... you can register and paypal [email protected] just put your first and last name.

If I go can I bypass 1-3? I think I'm an advance driver just with low hp.

08-09-2009, 02:29 PM
It's not $30 for the whole comp. It's $30 per round. Or if you wanted to skip the beginning it's $130.

08-09-2009, 03:54 PM
I like this idea, I will be there for sure.

08-09-2009, 08:42 PM

Im actually not sure... I'd have to check with Naoki.

08-12-2009, 04:30 PM
Kat so if we are advance per your approval and bypass 1-3 we have to pay $130 or $30 per round after? I'm a little confused.

08-12-2009, 05:30 PM

if you bypass the beginning it's $130 total. you wouldnt pay an additional $30 after.

08-17-2009, 12:51 PM
it was a great event.
props for Drift Day on such a fun event and vertex for taking such cone and tire abuse. lol.

08-17-2009, 02:12 PM
great event! I was having a really hard time with my car after not driving it for the last 5-6 months then have some mechanical issues during the third gear comp.
BIG thanks to Naoki and his staff for hosting this event and all the guests that showed up.
see you in 5 months! LOL

08-17-2009, 03:12 PM
Thanks to all the drift day staff. I easily got the 2nd gear course but took me almost all day to finally understand the 3rd gear course. Just one question to any of the staff who were apart of the comp. How did my round 1 -1st place and round 2- 4th place equal a 4th place overall? the guys who got 1-3 had like 10th and lower placings in round 1? just curious?Had a great time and look forward to having more fun out there next time

08-17-2009, 05:46 PM
So what were the prizes?

08-17-2009, 05:59 PM

08-17-2009, 07:18 PM
any other photos?

08-17-2009, 10:27 PM
How about results people!?!?!

08-18-2009, 10:48 AM
i think there were prizes. naoki got busy, so yoshie and hiro announced the winners.

basically this is what happened,

there were 2 courses. there were 3 ppl who only competed in the 2nd gear course. those 3 places 1-3. the rest of you who competed in both, received one total score. the total points added from the 2nd gear and 3rd gear. some totally rocked 2nd gear and didn't do so well on 3rd gear, which is why you would see an odd scoring difference. hope that answers your question.

2nd gear:

1. evan dunham
2. phillip masterfield
3. alex villareal (for those that know him, his corolla decided not to work when he got to the track that morning, so he borrowed swayray's s13 coupe. lol. he looks better in a nissan anway. jk jk. i think i have some incriminating photos of him sitting in the coupe, just waiting to be leaked on to club4ag.)

over all:

1. tak machida
2. jp mendoza
3. rene (from cx racing)

as of right now looks like 2nd gear gets a free drift day entry as a prize, and for over all the winner gets 2 free drift days. :w00t:

congratulations to the winners!

08-18-2009, 12:48 PM
YAY!!!! my car got 3rd place! well... so did alex...

08-18-2009, 10:15 PM
