  1. Beginner's Training Day and Drift Introduction - Tues 9th September

    Hey guys, At the moment it will just be this one but if we get enough people interested again in the future we will hold one again. This is a great opportunity and we also have Rob Whyte in his 350Z coming out as another instructor so able to take more drivers again
  2. Drift Beginner's Day - Archerfield, Brisbane

    Hey Girls!! I know getting out on the track for the first time is very nerve racking and I was the same way so I have made a training day that will help teach everyone the basics of drifting with all the help you could need! I procrastinated about going on track for about 2 years until our last 'Girl's Only Day' which gave me the skills and confidence I needed to join in with everyone else We have the perfect opportunity to get some of you lovely ladies onto the tracks and starting to drift! Finally... a beginner's training day that is open to complete beginner's for their first on track experience, through to slightly experienced/been to archy a few times. We are organising a drift day that will have a maximum of 14 drivers which will be split into two seperate groups... preferably level 1 and level 2 going by experience. All drivers will have a walk around the track to learn the corners and certain points that they should be made aware of. We will have 7 cars on track at one time with an instructor in each car for the duration of their laps giving advice, car setup pointers if need be and also just a bit of friendly advice and shed their experience with you. This will not be for the duration of the event but for the first part until every gets a bit more of a feel for it. Two donut spots will also be set up for a certain amount of time to learn throttle control... this is great fun and really does help with controlling the revs. The instructors will also be bringing their own cars out on track and you are able to jump in with them to see what they do (eg. when they use handbrake, clutch kick, entries and exits to the turns, etc.) As every instructor will be taking care of only two drivers throughout the day, they will be able to monitor your progress and note areas that need improving. Introducing the Instructors: Paul Williamson James Grady Josh Newson Steve Mountfort Dan Jorgensen Jansen Butler Trent Whyte THE TRACK: It will be held on Tuesday 9th September from 5-8.30pm. It is now booked in so we are now able to start taking pre-entries. First 14 payments received will have guaranteed positions on the night. Cost will be $100 per driver and will only be allowed to bring 2 pit crew/spectators with them as this is a beginner's day... we aren't trying to have a huge crowd. This will be a great day that shouldn't be missed by anyone that is wanting to get into drifting with a head start above the rest. You can pre-enter on the Option1Garage website HERE Any questions... fire away! Thanks, Em

Stand AS1698 As we are trying to put on a show here presentation of cars and drivers must be of a high standard - if you are not sure if you will qualify please contact us to find out. Format for Events The field will be divided into two groups of 16 cars seeded on past results at Archerfield at the organisers discression. Group 1 will be the more successful and experienced group , Group 2 will be the remaining drivers entered. To get a top 32 battle tree for the competition each group will randomly draw a number from 1 through to 16 and that will be their first battle. So who draws number one in Group 1 will battle who draws Number 1 in Group 2 and so on down to 16. The reason for this is we do not have the time to Qualify drivers at each round. By splitting the groups for the Top 32 we are achieving a more realistic battle tree whereas the top qualifier usually gets the bottom qualifier in the first round. Cars will be on track for an hours practice at the start of the event, this will be followed by a driver's parade and then straight into the battle rounds. As always we will run approx 1hour at the end of the night as an expression session for some fun. There will be no compulsory passenger rides at the end of the night, we will arrange this with drivers who are happy to do them on the night. You will be able to take out passengers in the expression session. Series Pointscore Points will be awarded as follows for each round 1st 25 points 2nd 22 points 3rd 20 points 4th 18 points 5th > 8th 14 points 9th > 16th 8 points 17th > 32nd 5 points Entries for the Series If you would like to enter the series go to the Archerfield page on the Option1Garage web site and fill in the pre enter form. Your entry will not be confirmed until payment as follows. The organisers have the right to not accept an entry and refund the fee at their discression. $250 with your nomination, $250 to pay by the 15th October before the 3rd round $500 up front payment if you take this option we will randomly draw one entry at the first round who has paid in full to get $100 back in cash on the day! As a condition of entry you must purchase from us numbers for the car - one each side on the rear windows and one LH side of the windscreen with your surname to go on the windscreen below the number. Look at any DA entry to see what we are trying to do. We will also have 2 Supercheap Auto stickers to go on the vehicle at our discression . All of these will be fitted by the organisers at the first round and must be present on the vehicle at every round following. If removed you will have to purchase more. Cost will be kept to a minimum and charged at our cost price so that no profit is added on. There will be no exceptions - If you have not paid or the numbers/stickers are not there you don't run! So get your entries in and let make this huge for Supercheap Auto

  9. Drift Competition this Saturday 9th August - Archerfield

    Hey guys.. this Saturday we are trying to do something a bit different and more entertaining for the drivers. We know that this comp is inconveniently timed with Driftstate being the next day so we have tried something mixing things up a bit!! This event is held at the Archerfield Drift Track, Brisbane! So here is how it is going to go: Qualifying will be 3 laps (depending on number of drivers) on each of the 3 different track layouts pictured below. For each layout, the driver's single best run will be taken and added together to create a top 8 who from then will use a battle format on a selected track layout to compete for top positions. Using this format, there will be nearly no one at an advantage as these layouts are very rarely used which will mean it is new for everyone. Please remember that there is about 2 hours of practice at the beginning for everyone to get use to the different tracks. An advantage of using this layout is even if you don't qualify in the competition, you will still receive 9 laps in competition mode to prove yourself with only the top score being taken from each. TROPHIES WILL BE AWARDED FOR TOP 3 POSITIONS ON THE NIGHT!!! Times: 2.15 - Gates open 3.00 - Practice begins (you will receive practice on each of the different track layouts) 5.00 - Competition begins 8.00 - Competition ends and awards Costs: $55 entry for drivers $10 spectators (adult) $5 spectators (child) Drivers please pre-enter HERE to reserve your position on the day! We will also have Truck'n Djs, our professional commentator and the Pro Drift promo girls out on the day too
