Date is 7th - 8th May, location as ever is Brawdy Airfield, West Wales, sat-nav post code is SA62 6NN (takes you to the main entrance - we DO NOT use that entrance), but en-route you will see the TDW signs.

£55 per day in advance for drivers (probably the best value for money drift event in the UK).

£10 on the day for pit access per additional person (includes extra drivers).

The opportunity is there for those brave enough to max out their car before hitting up a bit of Manji action on a mile and a half of MOD runway, 100mph+ entries, a playpen for absolute newbs and just about everything in between!

All this and a superb atmosphere (supplied FOC by the Cone-Dodgers staff) and a legendary Saturday night!

For the regulars, things will be run slightly different to what you are used to. In addition to the drifting, we are hosting a safety partnership demonstration area which will be open to the public. This will not impact on the drifting and will be kept at a separate end of the runway, but it would be nice if you are attending that you show some support as proceeds from the event will be going to charity. This means that there WILL be police on site, and it's very likely you will be breathalyzed before you are allowed on track. Also additional restrictions from the IOPD mean that absolutely no passengers will be allowed on track.

Places are limited, so get yourself in quick. Limit of 40 cars per day.

A few bits n' bobs...

Helmets and long sleeves are mandatory. We also strongly recommend you bring gloves, take out personal insurance for the event and arrange breakdown cover in case you get stuck out in the arsecrack of Wales!

All vehicles will have to pass our scrutineering before being allowed on track. The main points we enforce are:
- No structural rot
- Two independant braking systems (handbrake/footbrake ok)
- Ign kill switch in reach of driver
- TWO throttle return springs
- No pointy bits
- No excessively noisy exhausts - you know if it's too loud

When you say ignition kill switch would this include the key? and just how loud would you say is loud, as mine has been said to be loud(ish).

Key ignition barrel is fine provided you can reach it when strapped in. Noisy is fine, stupidly noisy isn't, it's down to the scrutineer on the day but I'd expect you'll be fine!

TBH it's not really suitable for speed runs as there will be people sideways on track. If drifting is something you would like to try it's perfect for it as you can spin off at 100mph and there's nothing to hit!

Here's an old track layout plan to give you an idea:
