NorCal UFO's First School For Drifting!

MARCH 21st, 2009! Just 2 weeks away! This event will be held on an ex-airport, the lot is HUGE.

Hey guys, Norcalufo will be hosting their first drift event ever. It's CHEAP and it lasts all day long.

Drifting doesn't have to be abusive, it's just an extension of a power slide. If you are concerned about driving your Alfa this hard, any make of car is welcome. RWD preferably though
I will be instructing at this event so don't hesitate to ask a question.


The course is pretty large, there will be enough space to see 50 MPH in most cars in the advanced course.

ENTRY: $40.00 per person for the AM Novice Courses; $40.00 per person for the PM Advanced Course; OR $70.00 for the day!

Registration will be open at 7:30 AM ‘til 8:30 AM and 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM, Gate is open from 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM, Gate is locked at 6:00 PM. The event will end At 4:00 PM so that set up for the next day’s event can be done. Please plan to arrive early enough to get registered, walk the course and attend the driver’s meeting. This is a trial event so we will be trying what we think will work. We may change the format as the day progresses if we feel we need to. Based upon the popularity of this event and the enthusiasm of the participants, there may be a follow on event in September. BRING 2 EXTRA WHEELS AND TIRES TO GET HOME ON. LOTS OF RUNTIME

All drivers must attend the Drivers meeting. If you are too late for the AM Drivers meeting, you must wait for the PM to run after you attend the drivers meeting. Drivers under 18 must have a signed parental waiver and license or permit.
All drivers must work the event!!! If you do not work, we may choose to not sell you a run card in the future at any UFO events!

TECH: All cars must pass a tech (safety) inspection with no leaks, tight wheel bearings, secure battery mounts, good brakes and tires and no loose objects. No SUV vehicles (Jeeps). Seat belts & helmets (loaners available) are required. 95dba @100ft sound limit. We use a two grid system where you bring your car to grid while the group previous to your run group is running on the other grid. Once on grid, you will be teched and you are then in position and ready to run with your group. After 1st run, two driver and single driver lines will be established. All tech inspection will be done on grid.. All drivers must have a valid driver’s license. No drugs or alcohol allowed on site. Speed limit in the pits and to & from the gate inside the AutoX site from is 5 MPH. Any display of Speed, scrubbing of tires or burn outs coming in or leaving will cause the event to be SHUT DOWN, everyone will have to leave immediately and we will NOT be able to return to this site again!!!
DIRECTIONS TO MARINA: Take Hwy 1 to Two exits South of Castroville toward Laguna Seca and Monterey. Take the Reservation Rd. Exit, turn south toward Marina, go a short block and turn right to STAY onto Reservation Rd. Follow Reservation Rd. through Marina and go about two miles south of town. Turn Left into Marina Airfield at the light and proceed into Marina Airfield. Turn Right at the indicated entry, follow the signs, this will be on the Reservation Road side of the Hiller Aviation building. MARINA SITE REQUIREMENTS: Please make sure that you do not exceed the posted speed limits on airport property (except while on course during your autox runs!). FAA regulations STRICLTY FORBID cars from driving out on the runways. DO NOT go exploring around, this will only get us kicked off the site! Local law enforcement agencies are aware of our presence, please be cool. Please make sure you pick up ALL of your trash.
For more information call Dennis Hale at (831) 336-2444. Get flyers and results on line at: Norcalufo.org

If you have any further questions you can also email me (Grant) at dorifto at sbcglobal dot net.

It sounds like a lot of fun. It is better to bring a more powerful car, a least a Milano to drift.

Thing is, we have a small course too that features a figure 8 and a large circle (like a skid-pad) so I think any car with LSD will be just fine!

This is one of those "generation gap" things I've read about, eh Grant?

Sad part is I'm not *that* much older than you...

OK, if we re-titled this thing to "Advanced Car Control Clinic" I'm sure the more mature folks would be all over this. Tom, you're crossing over to the dark side! No!! Quick! Let's go see Another Teen Movie III!

You are only nuts if you don't go drifting with us.

I have to take the Milano because the Michelin's on my other cars aren't going to be drifting anytime soon. The price of a set of Michelin PS2's is more than a Milano is worh now!

I was totally kidding, learning to control a slide is sooooo fun. But I'm happy just 3 Alfas will be there. That's 3 more than I expected =)

No, you're not kidding, you guys are all on crack. And not the good crack, either: the James Brown, "run over a cop with a backhoe" kind of crack.
