Back to Basics Clinic weekend.
As cars and drivers have been progressing lately in Texas, we have been trying to cater to them as much and as fast as possible. This includes the Lone Star Drift Series which is a points race to the 2013 Formula Drift season, as well as more advanced classroom settings where we gave you a chance to pick the brains of Matt Powers and Autocomp Marty. This is all awesome, but for the first weekend of August we will be getting back to the roots of drifting and trying to gets some new people up to speed. We will be covering the very basics of what a drift car is, what drifting is, how to drift, the techniques used, etc. Unlike some of the more advanced topics we have been covering lately, I have this stuff down without question, and can easily and concisely get it across. This isn't black magic pro drifting, this is good down to earth stuff which is easy to teach! We will be doing an air-conditioned indoor classroom session on the 4th, and on the 5th we will be doing a practice drift day and clinic out at Mineral Wells Airport.

Cost: 50 at the gate for driving, instructing is free. However, to secure an instructor for the day you must reserve a spot by PMing me in advance so I have an instructor for you. I am pairing 2-3 students per instructor so the students get lots of one on one time. In order to have the correct number of instructors on hand, I need to know the correct amount of students, so please, reserve a spot as soon as possible. That does not require prepayment, just a message to me that you want a spot.
