Wow this looks fun!

Maybe just a few questions:

1. I have a front-wheel drive car, no drifting, but can I still enter just to have a go?

2. Can I drive like a grandma? (A little jaded from going on the track since I got hit a few months ago at Winton by a complete f**king retard)

3. How many cars on the track at a time?

4. "Battery must be secure with a steel bracket and sealed from the cabin" Mine is secure, but I can't remember whether it's steel or plastic (since it is a Mitsubishi!). I can double check, but as it's secure, would I be fine?

5. How long does each group have per session on the track?

6. "Brake, clutch and power steering reservoirs must be covered by an absorbent material." < Any recommendations for absorbent material?

7. What is a "grip session"?

I'll probably have more as I think about it. Cheers :)

Hey bud! thanks for the text, hopefully these answers are enough, any more questions just give me another text!

Wow this looks fun!

Maybe just a few questions:

1. I have a front-wheel drive car, no drifting, but can I still enter just to have a go?

Yes, you are more then welcome to enter, even if you dont plan to drift, however, you would need keep up a pace that didnt hold up the drifters

2. Can I drive like a grandma? (A little jaded from going on the track since I got hit a few months ago at Winton by a complete f**king retard)

As above, if you were to enter, you would have to drive at a pace so as to not interfere with those drifting

3. How many cars on the track at a time?

There will be anywhere between 20-35 cars on track at one time

4. "Battery must be secure with a steel bracket and sealed from the cabin" Mine is secure, but I can't remember whether it's steel or plastic (since it is a Mitsubishi!). I can double check, but as it's secure, would I be fine?

The factory mounting bracket is fine, however if the battery has been relocated to the boot or cabin, it must be secured with a steel bracket

5. How long does each group have per session on the track?

Each session is 20 minutes long

6. "Brake, clutch and power steering reservoirs must be covered by an absorbent material." < Any recommendations for absorbent material?

Most drivers use socks, or rags, have seen drivers use stubbie coolers before, all are acceptable

7. What is a "grip session"?

By grip, I just mean a non-drift session, so just normal track driving

I'll probably have more as I think about it. Cheers :)
