Saturday April 18th @ Gimli Motorsports Park is our first event of the season for anyone who is wanting to come try out drifting in a safe environment. I will have the skid pad open as well as the road course so driver's can start out on the skid pad if they are not 100% comfortable going on the track yet.  It is a great place to come practice with nobody to judge you and have myself and a hand full of guys willing to give some tips and pointers for guys just starting out.

Saturday April 18th
9:00 am - 7 pm
Cost - Driver cost is $125 ( $140 late registration after April 1st )
Spectators: $10
Ride Along pass : $10 ( Must have spectator pass )

All drivers must pass a basic tech inspection and complete a walk through of the course for any new drivers who may not be familiar with Gimli.  Vehicles must be free of leaks, battery secure and tied down, positive terminal covered or battery box, working seat belts or harnesses properly mounted. Brakes must be fully functional with working brake lights. All drivers must have a full faced helmet.

Any questions please email me at: Gonzo@DriftFarm.ca

        I think it does but I'm not sure




        I will be there in my car with an open passenger seat for anyone who wants to come for ride alongs.

        We are talking 100KPH entries into a 3 turn S-bend section.
        Gimli is the best drift track in central Canada and is well worth coming to and actually sitting in a car and seeing how much fun it can be to be out of control.... It is even more fun if your driving so I would suggest that everyone who owns a RWD bring their car.  You will learn sooooo much about your car and about driving in general just from one track day.
        And the best thing is, the track is so wide, if you do spin out, most of the time you don't even go off track so there is next to chance of causing any damage to your vehicle

        I really hope to see a good crowd show up for this drift day..... I promise you will have the time of your life.  Even as a passenger it is stupid fun

              Full faced helmet? Does that mean those special ones you're doing an order for? Or can it be snell/dot motorcycle helmet?

                As long as it is DOT full faced helmet with no cracks or damage, that will be accepted.

                        Just traded shifts at work so me and @atticus.rascal will be there. Wish we had a drift car already, ride alongs will have to do for now. Last year was a blast, can't wait!

                              I assume spectator passes can be bought there, correct? Either way, I'm totally in to watch.

                                            June event I held with WSCC so they had their own stuff going on. This is my event so only drifting with some guys doing some laps.

                                            helmets are a good idea to bring so you are not waiting on a helmet to be free for a ride along.

                                              Hey guys,  I am looking forward to see everyone out this weekend!  We have 16 drivers registered for the drift day so you will see a lot of action on the track all day long! I will also be out with my back up S15 Spec-R drifting through out the day.  spectator passes can be purchased at the track.
