Gates open to drivers at 8am and tech will begin promptly. All drivers are required to pass the DriftSTL Tech Guide. If your car does not pass tech you will not be allowed on track (in failed vehicle) until it is repaired accordingly. (see tech inspector for final decision)

By being a racing driver you are under risk all the time. By being a racing driver means you are racing with other people. And if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver because we are competing, we are competing to win.

You brake and then turn the wheel, step on the clutch, and pull the e-brake. Release the e-brake, go into countersteer mode, then wait. Wait until you know the car is facing the corner exit direction. then you smile and slam on the gas as you exit the corner.

And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.
