5Flags input

Post  freshlikesushi on Tue Feb 14, 2012 3:17 pm

So with two events under the belt, what do you guys think?

This is your chance to get your input heard so i can push for what the Drifters want!

On the slate:
Enlargen the Photographer area to about 2 or 3 times the size it is
Curve the spectator area so people arent having ot look AROUND the ones further down the line creating a better line of sight for everyone
Expanding hte track a little bit to the next right hand turn by the wall, to allow wall rides if so desired
Adding concrete to spots on the track (think last right hander) to make it cleaner for everyone to be consistent.

Can something be done about the pit area? It ends up being spectator parking and it turns into a cluster fawk.

Any chance of them ever opening up part of the actual track to use and then drift into the infield area? You know, like all of the other circle tracks that are used for drifting Very Happy

Would it be a full cage needed or just a roll bar type deal?

Not sure if this is the place to post this but, did you ever find out what the regs are for fuel cells? I really just want to know if I have to drop the coin on a Fuel Safe or ATL cell with a bladder and all.

so we need upgraded seats and a harness also? cant get away with just a roll cage? or were you saying having seats/belts are an option

exactly.

He may say you need less. but for now, cage, SFI belts at least, and a decent seat SFI preferred

i think the pit area should be somewhere convenient for the drivers to have easy access to their tools n tires n shit. maybe have a roped off area for the pit and have it out of the way for people to see the drift coarse.

If more cement is being added. Why not just make the track more of a loop so when people are going they can do multiple laps at a time. Would be more seat time and less waiting in line.

you still have the rest of the track to parking but the infield needs some sort of order.
