Opt Drift Club is holding the D1 round 3 Competition at Silverstone

Race circuit on 17th July. We would like to invite you to bring along a

discount to spectate at the event.

There will be awards presented to those cars in the stands that are

Regards,

Kiki

This sounds like a fantastic meet Mat...

I'd be interested.

I gather everyone had footie fever tonight, so lack of replies probally..

Why don't you keep this running through the weekend and see on the replies and decide on Monday.

more info, including the timings.................

The Event is on the 17th of July and runs from 9am till 5pm. Im also told that their will be 3 awards given out to the cars on Display aswell.

They are:

1. Ultimate engineer- The car has been intelligently designed by the owner or tuner, for example this may be the cooling system or the engine position. Really anything that shows time, effort and intelligence in its development, function over form!

2. Ultimate shine- The car may be completely standard but has clean interior and exterior including suspension, engine bay, wheels, exhaust, wheel arches and underneath the car.. Your common or garden "concourse" vehicle!

3. Top tuning- This is basically the best lookng car i.e. nicest wheels, how the car sits, how the engine bay looks, how the interior looks and the look of the complete body shell.

Basically, the main event is the UKD1 action out on track but as a side show for the spectators, to improve value for money (although its a great day out, the drifting is really fun to watch these days with some crazy stuff going down!) and attract more interest to help Option further improve the Drift Events for everyone! I would prefere it if interested parties would post here, with a few car details etc and then convene with a Club Representative who i will then forward onto Option (id rather it just be an E-mail from a single representative as Option are busy and it wouldnt help to have a hundred random emails being sent in, rather than just one) for further details on the Club Stand and how it will be organised!

so who wishes to be the club rep, for this, as i wont be around to go :crybaby:
