Pretty sure there is a list of what is going on throughout the day on the website.

Basically the track is broken up into sections (esses, top hair pin, turn 3 (?), burnout pad) from memory and the drivers are broken up into groups.

At each spot there is a more experienced driver who will give you hints/tips for you to improve as you do their section.
You rotate throughout the day with your group going to a new setion.

At the end of the day there is usually an open track session (like normal drift prac.)

Thats what I can remember but it might have changed

this is the best chance to learn drifting. the instructors will teach you basic moves on the skid pan and stuff.

Ive only done 3 pracs so im fairly new but you might pick it up pretty quick

Fixed back in sits abit high still fit with my helmet though.

Rocked up to autobarn Elizabeth to grab some coolant/oil and stuff. Forget my car has been lowered and hit the gutter front on then reverse back thinking I just tapped my bar on it then my friend is screaming at me to shut engine off.

Ripped open my oil cooler at like 4pm on a Saturday. :( autobarn had no cooler worth buying so we cut the lines and found some metal tube and hose clamped it togeather so no oil cooler for me tomorrow and I have no oil temp gauge.

Can't wait to drift though
