Default Drifting the s2k

Date: 16/8/2013
Place: Oulton Park
Vehicle: S2000

1st Full session in the S, with make shift Go Pro bracket, fitted via the ariel stub. I was extremely cautious as I know how much these can bite! Good day all in all. Loads of fun. Had my first medical at Oulton to....which is another story.

Cheers guys. I seen the mx5 spin so I thought id put the shits up him a little haha There are some more videos on my channel.

To Elaborate on the medical! - I jumped in with a guy because he looked like fun ( didn't really have a clue what he was doing but was giving it ago, we all start somewhere right ). well long story short he loses it in the armco and smashes the side of his mx5 off the sides it was great fun! And it was all caught on camera. So the marshals wouldn't let us back on without a medical. I've been to Oulton around 30 times and not once have I been for a medical. I am trying to get the footage off him so ill post it up once I have it.

Here's a picture of my make shift camera mount.

Ive been drifting for a bout 2 years now and i'm pretty confident even on public roads . I took it easy in the S as it was my first full session with her and having owned one previously I know how hard they kick you if you get it wrong! Ive done around 20-25 drifting session all in all and around 6-8 track days including Nords and the nurburg GP circuit. The ding dong was in the Armco yes, but not in my car nor was it me driving.

This looks like great fun. How often do they do these days? And how much does it cost?

Would love to have a go at this, although I'm sure I'd be all over the place!

About £130 from memory.

It's far better when the tracks dry, they wet it due to noise though

Oulton Park hosts around 12-15 sessions a year. There are other venues through out the uk. have a google search or check out MSV.com. Next session at Oulton Park is 6th sept. Oh and it is great fun!
