Drifting 101 - for the neewbie

Postby Riekert » Tue Dec 09, 2008 9:10 am

Hey Guys...

Well with all the drifting going on... and Charel also being back... I thought this would work nicely.

ok... so where to begin...

Well lets begin at the beginning.

I call on Charel to start out the Drifting 101 section... Please....

:D cool, I realy like this idea.
Well, lets see, first and above all, you would need a RWD car.
Then you need to be sure that drifting is realy what you want to do, because, trust me, its going to take allot of your time, money and you are going to put your car on the line, so dont fool yourself, by thinking you will never hit anything, just look at me,and some of my other mates the last event on 6th Dec.
But belive me, once you got it right, you wont want to do eanything els.
The best fun you will ever have! :twisted:

Nice. Ok... so for a real beginner with a RWD car and a few grand in the bank... where should they begin? where to go? what to do?

Okay, So you made the decision you want to drift, and master the art of going sideways?
We have practice sessions every wednesday night at The Rock from about 17:30 till late.
Entrance is R30 p/car, but if you become a club member, and get a club card, you dont pay entrance.
All you need to do, is be dedicated, and take it serious about the sport, but most of all, have fun, and dont warry about what the other guys may think of your drifting,we all were thare in the beging :wink: .
Myself, and Bruno,Jay-Boy and Flo, are always there to give a hand and give tips on how to improve. Just get to the track and practice, that is the most important part.
