Dover De drift event anyone?

Some of you know about this, but for those who don't, heres the latest update

Still in progress. There should be a major announcement come this April.

Heres the original post

If you are serious about wanting a drift event at the Dover Downs Raceway parking area with cost relative to other events (around $40-$100) , please post here. This is not another lame attempt, this is legit as it gets with serious contacts. I just need a initial list of drifters that want an event in Dover so i can get this thing rolling.

No need to ask questions or flame like a tool , just simply say your interested and promise you'll atleast show up.

Heres the thread from my site

http://forums.driftinginsider.com/showthread.php?t=1273

list of people who want to get this event going....

Hello all ,

My 1st job in this was to post on as many forums as i could , which came out to be 18 of them. They wanted my to get a general idea of how many people would actually want to drive and or help support this event if it were to happen.

My 2nd job was to wait atleast a week and a half and compile everyones post into a Word document and email it to my source. Wish me luck guys!!


Update , list sent....Now its in the hands of the higher ups.


From Lookoutdrift.com

nn - "I'll go"




RACERPAGE - "in!"

From Drift411.com




DriftDuck - "holy jeebus. ok, put me down as a maybe. if I have enough time to plan ahead I might come. but its a big stretch. only reason I say maybe, though, is because thats a damn big lot. I would have to co-ordinate it with a road trip back home."




From mdstreetscene.com




DMiller - "Im interested, whats an estimated date that this could happen? (engine is out of car, suspension needs to be re-aligned and all that jazz, diff needs teh lockage blah) If its super soon I cant guarantee id make it but maybe very end of this month or beginning of next I'm down"

From poweroveronline.com




importdemon5 - "Sweet i'll deff. come on down to the event, its about time that there is one closer than 2 hours away, haha. I got some other boys that are into driftin that have cars that would be able to drift in. I know a good deal of other people that would come on down to support the even also. Keep us updated on what happens with the even too"




"My dad is friends with the owner of Grotto Pizza. If you write something up to convince him to sponsor the event or have a certain part in the event to get more people to it I could deff. let him know and see what he says. It's a new up and coming sport and it's getting bigger and bigger so I think he might be alright with the idea. Let me know what you think"




"I also just set up a facebook group called Dover Delaware Drift Event. If you have a facebook account join the group. Slappy, if you have a facebook account sign up and I'll put you up as an administrator. Just another means of getting more people to find out about this even and want to see it happen."







snowskateskim21 - "Yea i joined both the facebook and myspace groups and i invited all of my friends...we will have to see what the outcome is. Hopefully it will be positive!"







importdemon5 - "Slappy, let me know if you still want to get grottos to do some sort of sponsorship thing if you and your buddies can get it going. What I think would help in getting Dover Downs to let you do the event there or get some sort of sponsors is to make like a 5 min. DVD of what drifting is and how it has grown from a Japanese sport to an American way of living and how there are so many spectators it is ranging close to NASCAR. Have like scenes of cars drifting and then have amateur drifters and pro drifters; Tanner Foust, Vaughn Gittin JR, Samuel Hubinette and anyone else that you may be able to get to speak on the DVD about drifting and how it would be a good idea to have an event at the Dover Downs speedway. I think that this would definitely yield some interest from Dover Downs if you get some pros in there speaking and a few amateur drifters speaking and how this can help get drifting off the street and have a competition/practice close to home"




From tristatetuners.com




JtunedMotorsports - "hell yea....esp if i have my car done.."




jdmwill - "slappy for you, i'll catch a bullet. hold up i almost did already.lol tom you could most definitely count me in brother. i'm pretty sure all of the DN members will show face."




Reckless13 - "I would support it!"




omgjacki - "I'd love to come!"




sobigsofly - "ill be there"




From zilvia.net




rps13drift - "make it happen dude!"




sleepinsilvia23 - "Are we talking like a CL setup type thing? If so id be interested"




carnagexxxx - "Understanding that you are looking to see who is interested, I was wondering what the projected dates you were looking to start this up? Depending on what dates I would be interested along with a buddy of mine"




From silviav8forums.com




chitodsr - "I'd be down. Just have to fit it into the schedule" Looks sick! I haven't been to Dover in a couple of years. When do you think this will happen?"




ranger2339 - "I hear ya bro. more track time is always good.. Good luck with the event..Josh"




From sumospeed.com




WishIHadaSilvia - "It just as far away as VIR...I'd be down to caravan up there. That is some smooth *** pavement, it wont eat tires as quick as Pungo does. I think it would be sweet to get the RVA guys in on it too and literally caravan up there. However, I can't do anything like this until I get another job! It would have to be really cheap as well, because you can do VIR for 75 usually and that is a track. Pungo costs more I know but I live like 20 mins from there. Like I said though I would be willing to go out there to support it."




From ********.com




taras240 - "im there"




3down1togo - "nice parking lot... if my car doesnt break this sat and i have money for tires SURE why not...BTW how far is it from philly?"

thefro526 - "I'd be down. I'm assuming this would be a cone course with very little stuff to hit"




From delawarestreetracing.com




SuperFocus - "I'm down, plus its right down the road from me!"




Mav - "watching those professional drift events is actually pretty entertaining. i went to 2 formula drift events this summer for the first time and had a good time at both. if you guys do something i'll come down and watch"




2002WS6 - "when is this happening?"




crzyamazing - "Hey im Elise, im new and i also want to know when this is going to be too .sounds good hope its soon"


Please, show your support!

hm, 4 hour drive from me.
Doesn't look like much seat time if all those people go.

It's a drifting event, go out there, spin around, learn from it, LOL! If you have any question, almost every event has at least one advanced driver that you can ask for pointers.
