Dates for Have a Go Days and Drift School for 2022 are up on the Calendar page 



To enter any of our competitions or weekday testing events, we require all drivers to have some track drifting experience, a good way of doing this is at our drift schools.

Beginner morning events - 9:30am - 12:30pm
Or whole Day (only 1-2 times a year on weekends) 10am - 3:30pm
-A TRACK VERSION 1 used. 2nd gear for most cars, easier for beginners.
-Small groups alternating on track, cars one at a time.
-Tutors assisting with advice and driving tips.

See http://driftsouth.co.nz/driftschool for info and entries for the next school when available



New to the format is the Drift South Development Series.

Basically the same as the old Street Legal, open to almost anyone who wants to come out and compete. You get 2 practice sessions and then a session of judged laps to give you a final score. Top 3 placings get the trophies

You must have some track drift experience, preferably from a Drift School

Requirements: Road cars and track cars are able to compete if they meet a few basic requirements: 

Road cars must have a WOF, bolted down battery and an approved fire extinguisher - bolted through the floor. They will be scrutineered to make sure everything is safe.

Competition cars may be used and must meet the same requirements as Pro Drift.

Personal safety requirements include a minimum of clean 100% cotton overalls and an approved helmet. (See Schedule A to find the regulations for helmets and all other requirements)
