Who?: DWYB is for anyone from complete novices wanting
tuition to expert drifters wanting quality seat time without authorities or
kerbs to worry about. Drift cars are rear wheel drive and usually light to
moderate weight. The most popular cars for drifting in the UK are Nissans
(S13/S14/S15 and GTS Skylines), Toyotas (AE86), Mazdas (MX5 and RX-7), Fords
(Old School Escorts and Sierras) and BMWs (3 Series) but many other cars can be
and are used for drifting. All vehicles taking part should be silenced.
How Many?: DWYB days are limited to 80 people per day to
ensure maximum track time and with several prepared areas and courses there is
no shortage of drift time.
Driving Licence: A
full driving licence is required to participate in the DWYB events.
Tyres: This is Drift What Ya Brung so you will need your own car and tyres. There are full tyre changing facilities on site with a charge of £7 per rim. Tyre disposal is £2 per tyre, or you must take your used tyres away with you. Dumping tyres in local villages is not acceptable.
Passenger Rides: If you don't have your own car or it's too precious then passenger rides are available, just ask a marshall.
Facilities: There are toilet facilities on site and a catering unit will be open from 9am to 4pm. If you run short on fuel, VP Racing Fuel is available from the Pod Shop along with Santa Pod merchandise.
Tuition: Tuition, if required, is from very experienced drifters and will start with basic donuts and figure of eights.
Noise Restriction: There is a 105db Noise restriction in place for drifting so please ensure you car has mufflers and bring bungs if it is very loud. If people get turned away due to being too loud they will be credited for another day.
Tracks: All the features mentioned above apply to everything that goes on at DWYB however we have several different track layouts for you to choose from depending on your level of ability. There are 4 play pens for practicing donuts and figure eights, an intermediate kidney track, as well as an advanced track. The advanced track is more suited to drivers with some experience looking to further improve skills. The larger course requires a higher level of driving skill and machine setup making it a perfect track to practice on for those who wish to turn a wheel between competitive events, try out new settings on their cars, or progress to the next level.
Drivers will have to prove they are competent at
basic drifting on the intermediate track before they are allowed on the
advanced track. Drivers wishing to practice twining at DWYB days will have to
prove they are competent on the large track solo first.
Helmets are recommended on the advanced track.
