SATURDAY:
We have some changes which we are sure you'll be pumped on!

ADVANCED

Driver Groups

Saturdays event on Track 2 will now see drivers grouped into Group A/B/C (yes we can place you with friends but will need entry in ASAP) for our morning and early afternoon sessions before going to a rolling pit format from around 3pm onwards!
This means more gauranteed drift sessions and less guess work with when you can go out!

Double Length Drift Session!
Now 15-20 minutes long! Longer sessions mean you can quickly come in, swap your tyres over and head back out! or simply make adjustments through out the session and roll back out to enjoy!

Less drivers on track!
We have lowered the driver amount on track from 30 down to 15-20!

We want you guys drifting and enjoying yourselves, this will mean LESS wait time on track!

FastPass VIP! *TRIAL*

Are you a driver that wants EVEN MORE track time and want to dust off the countries supply of 265s? We are releasing a super limited trial of FASTPASS VIP upgrades which will allow any driver who participates, the ability to simply roll up to a seperate FastPass line in the pits and be released into any session *up to 5 VIP only per session. Line up n' go! even if it isnt your session!

SATURDAY ENTRIES CAPPED TO 50-60 ONLY

SUNDAY // SUNDAY CLUB SESSIONS

This is the return of our super fun "Sunday Sessions" Day Out for Intermediate to Advanced drivers to smash their tyres and have fans enjoy the smoke show that is tight and technical Club Circuit! Allowing you to get up close to the action, standing only metres away from the track = epic viewing!


Drifting Club Circuit + Live DJs + Food Trucks + Bar [pending venue license requirements]


Enjoy constant drifting across the FULL day, soaking in the atmosphere for a good, wholesome day out.
