Drifters re­turn to lo­cal track

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

DRIV­ERS from the Mackay and Dis­trict Drifters (MADDINC) will be tak­ing to the Whit­sun­day Race­way for a day of high-oc­tane drift rac­ing on Satur­day.

Gates open at 8am for the ac­tion packed day of drift­ing which at­tracts some of North Queens­land’s best driv­ers to test their skills on the cus­tom-built track.

MADDINC pres­i­dent Peter Young said the event is open to all driv­ers with new faces reg­u­larly tak­ing to the track.

“It’s a great op­por­tu­nity for driv­ers to get heaps of track time and just have some fun,” he said.

The club holds reg­u­lar drift days at the race­way just out­side Proser­pine with sup­port­ers or new­com­ers wel­come to come and give drift­ing a try or ex­pe­ri­ence the thrills as a pas­sen­ger for a hot lap.

Spec­ta­tors’ en­try costs $10 per per­son with pas­sen­ger hot laps cost­ing $20 per per­son.

An en­try fee of $150 for the day ap­plies to driv­ers who do not hold a cur­rent MADDINC mem­ber­ship.

The next event on the drift­ing cal­en­dar will be held on Oc­to­ber 26.
