View Full Version : Louisiana Drift Event! Thunder Road Drift Days - Saturday January 14th, 2012

12-19-2011, 05:19 PM

On Saturday January 14th we will be holding another drift day at TRRP. The reason for it being on Saturday is that we will be allowed to use the entire lot. This means faster entry speeds, more intricate course designs, and wider lanes.


Drivers $25
$10 per spectator (I'm sure we'll have fliers for spectators as the event date gets closer)


Drifters arrive at 12:00
Drivers meeting and course walkthrough at 12:30
Drifting starts at 1PM
Driving for everyone until 5PM

I need all drifters to be at the drivers meeting on time so I can give everyone the run down. Flags will be used so I need all drivers to know what they mean.

SAFETY/TECH INSPECTION (for drifting only!!):

-Must have a minimum of a DOT approved helmet, for drivers and passengers. Motorcycle helmets are acceptable. (I don't want anyone thinking a barbie bicycle helmet will pass inspection). THIS DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ANYTHING FANCY.

-Must have working seat belts (and they must be worn!!!!)

-Batteries must be secured

-Drivers seat must be secured as well as any seat a passenger will be riding in

-No constant fluid leaks

-All wheel studs and lug nuts need to be installed and secured


-No hands outside of windows

-Important not to drive past your limits. We want you to push yourself and improve, but within your abilities. If we set up a third gear course it doesn't mean you have to enter in third gear. Our staffers are there to help everyone improve so just take your time and ask for tips whenever needed.

-If you spin out and knock down a wall of cones, simply exit course and allow time for everyone to go out and reset the section. No big deal. But please don't proceed to knock down even more cones lol.

This will be a much faster course and sweepers will be able to be implemented. Fix your cars, think about new techniques you can use, whatever you need to do to prepare. Looking forward to another fun and care free event!

If there are any questions please feel free to ask.
