Ex­cite­ment build­ing for first drift­ing com­pe­ti­tion

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

THE first ever drift­ing com­pe­ti­tion at the Whit­sun­day Race­way will be held this week­end by the Mackay and Dis­trict Drifters (MADDINC).

MADDINC has had reg­u­lar prac­tice drift­ing days at the race­way just out­side of Pro- ser­pine but things will step up a level this Satur­day as they hold their first ever com­pe­ti­tion.

All com­pe­ti­tion en­try fees will be given back as prize money on the day.

The clip­ping point comp is not a tan­dem com­pe­ti­tion, as there are a lot of driv­ers with vary­ing abil­i­ties and event or­gan­is­ers didn’t want to see cars writ­ten off in the first com­pe­ti­tion.

The sim­ple clip­ping point com­pe­ti­tion will see awarded points for hit­ting each clip­ping point and the win­ner at the end of the day will be the driver with the most points.

All the top driv­ers from the com­pe­ti­tion will qual­ify for en­try into the tan­dem event at the end of the year.

En­try is a $30 on top of the nor­mal en­try fee in the com­pe­ti­tion com­po­nent and there will be open prac­tice on the day for those not want­ing to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion, so all driv­ers will get plenty of track time. For more in­for­ma­tion should visit www.face­book.com/mack­ay­drift.
