DWO to the world...Drift classes begin

Postby Tsuchiya » August 6th, 2011, 9:03 pm

DRIFT:

(1) The art of controlling a slide of a vehicle throughout a corner or series of corners in a state of over steer. This is known to increase desirability by the opposite gender and increase awe by the same sex.
(2) The flow or velocity of a body of water. Usually seen when the propulsion unit has been disabled and awaiting Coast Guard's assistance on the way to Venezuela.
(3) Induced by alcohol, a body's movement without even needing a vehicle. Amnesia is a side effect.

Hmmm……...I'll take definition #1.

In a regular driving lifetime, nothing is planned and as such situations arise where control is lost. Poorly paved roads, heavy rains, reacting to an illegal maneuver by a road abuser, which are all regular obstacles we may face on a simple journey to the corner. What we, as drivers do within that uncontrolled state is what makes the difference in coming through unscathed or having to pay for a Porsche Cayenne's LED headlight. Not my idea of a good journey.

Initial D, D1 Grand prix, Drift Muscle, Formula Drift and countless others have 1 thing in common; Drifting. This cult form of motorsport has grown and can be witnessed worldwide. Drivers could be seen holding their cars at ludicrous angles at ridiculous speeds, bellowing out copious amounts of acrid tyre smoke.

I am 1 of the millions who have seen that and said,

"I want to be able to do that…………….."

And now you can .

Enter...Drift World Order. We the members of DWO are pleased to announce Drift Classes. We provide a safe, closed course for attendees, as well as providing a Drift-ready vehicle; the infamous DWO demo R33 Skyline. Just walk with a clean pair of underwear and appropriate outer garments (no vests, sleeveless, short pants, slippers). At a cost of $1800.

There will be helmets ready for rental for those without such personal protection. ($50)

Also, if you wish to do our classes with your own RWD car, the cost attached will be $800. The car must be scrutinized and its driftability approved.

Classes are individually taught on weekends and comprise a 2 hour session on Saturday followed by 1 hour session on Sunday, you will be taught the basics of dynamic vehicle control.

Interested persons can call DWO's prez Kerry Philip(682-5394), who will give you a confirmed date to go sideways.

Understood but that's not a problem as we can work up a date that best works for u and us as well. You can speak with Kerry directly and tell him your concerns.
The reason we haven't spoken location is crowds tend to increase the level of jitters and can adversely affect one's performance. So we're being a lil secretive.

Is it $800 bucks is per weekend, or is it for a specified amt of weekends, as individuals will obviously learn at a different rate

the class is held on a weekend and comprises a 2hr session on saturday and 1hr on sunday. so the prices are for each class, each weekend.

please do not hesitate to voice your concerns and ask any further questions you see fit to ask.

all sessions are by appointment, so no jostling for time with other people. you will be one on one for the time paid for. no crowds, we tryin to minimise that, dont want a lime, there is a great need to keep the driver focused etc

when you call if you would like to bring people along for support that can be entertained on a case by case basis

sorry if people think the price is expensive, i belive it to be fair, venue, one on one attention etc ..............

when you call the president of the club he will take your information and we will assign appropriate days and times convenient to you. only a limited number of people will be scheduled and it will be a sequential schedule of attendees as in when you doing your class the next will arrive at the end of your time frame for his.

DWO will start you on the course to do the manueveres properly, 90, 180, drift circle (not wild dough nuts) etc...........basic need is a good working LSD, preferably a two way but if u have a good viscous it can work, such assessment will be done when your car is brought on site.
