Pre-Entry is available and is now compusory to reserve your spot for the day. Not only does it save you money, it also saves time in the morning as you only have to show your cams/aasa license, pay (if you didnt pre-pay) and collect your arm bands! How easy is that!

Please encourage your mates to pre-enter too!

Pre-entries are now being taken. No direct deposits will be taken after the 2nd September.

Acceptable Licenses are: AASA or Cams L2NS - No license means no going on the track!

On the day purchase of AASA license:

AASA license $50

(Can be purchased at the Winton office on the morning of the drift day. This needs to be done before you come into the scrutineering bay to pay and have your car scrutineered as entries will not be accepted without proof of license or receipt of payment from Winton)

Please note : VDC board members will be checking aasa and cams licenses, this year we will be checking everyone. Please ensure all your licenses and memberships cards are valid.

The usual requirements as always are:

*Long sleeve and long pants of non flammable materials i.e. No Nylon

*Closed footwear

*Helmet that complies to Australian Standards (has ASA or Snell Sticker)

*Car needs to be in a good condition, no oil leaks, no loose items in the car and battery secure. It must pass scrutineering to be allowed on the track!

*Working seat belt/s (give it a pull and make sure it locks)

*Passengers will only be permitted in cars with half/full roll cages. Passengers must also be wearing the appropriate clothing, footwear and helmet. They must also abide by the track rules or they will not be allowed to go on the track. Drivers will also be held accountable for their passengers following the track rules!

It's about the same distance as shep. Yes you will need a helmet and AASA only good for some tracks such as winton, not all.

the S13 that Rush put into the wall at the last comp day is all fixed now. So we'll be there again so Rush can put it into the wall again.

Good stuff!

Like Russman said it's only good at a few tracks. If your thinking of doing more events outside of drifting at Winton(only drift track in Victoria atm), Cams and SAU membership is the way to go.

Just a reminder as well - DON"T FORGET TO PRE-BOOK!!!!! numbers are going to be cut at 70 and entry on the day is not guaranteed apparently. It is also cheaper to enter early.

Only take off your bumper if it is low. Should be fine though.

Tyre needs depends on power and how hard you're gunna go. If it's you're first time 2 used pairs may do or 1 decent set. Tyre changer is there all day. Doesn't balance though and it cost 10 bucks a tyre.

Doesnt look like there are going to be many at this event!!! Has anyone pre booked ??

And aftr i change the tyres for drifting should i get them balanced as well?

Don't bother balancing drift tyres but you should do them for the road tyres. They don't do this at winton though. Only tyre changing.

Have a look on nissansilvia.com there are heap on there that will be going. Probably about 60+ cars.

Everything is explained on the day. Don't stress about all the small stuff. Have a read over the vicdrift website as there is plenty of info of what you'll need for your first track day then just get yourself there.

Don't forget to just have a thrash and some fun on the day :)

    • Shitbox Tiguan updates, got the APR OTS tune put back on (no charge for it to be removed/added back), didn't want to just come in just for that (not a fan of wasting people's time for nothing) so I purchased an APR dog bone insert. The boys at German Performance Garage said they would fit it for free too since they had 1x hoist free. Now that's service you don't normally get from most workshops. Anyhow, tune back on, snow grate pulled out, dog bone insert back in and not going to lie, a few smiles when I nailed it around the industrial area heading back onto the M7. Amayama also said 1 to 2.5 month wait for the RB25DE heater hose, yeah why not, car has been off the road for nearly 3, what's a other 2.5?
    • Hmm I'm going to approach this from the other side... What is the car doing that you don't like or what would you like the car to do that is currently isn't doing (handling wise that is)
    • Checked for spark? Checked for fuel?
    • New whiteline rubber bushes, maybe some adjustable arms (rubber ends like hard race for road car)no need for Sway bar if correct springs or going to be fine tune for the track. A proper alignment with corner balancing and coilovers with spring rate for the right purpose and setting droop correctly.
    • Hi guys Have a series 1 r33. Recently I took the car out for a drive when I got home it was fine I went to start it later that night and nothing....has full power from battery.
