Notes:
If you thought you had fun at Turner, just wait.
If you thought 3rd gear was fun, just wait.
If you thought big courses were cool, just wait.
If you thought you'd experienced drifting on the East Coast before, just wait.

AMS will re-define the way that you look at your drifting. With over 661,200 square feet of asphalt, to say there will be enough room for a high-speed course is an understatement at best. The DGTrials' designed Turner SFS lyout is sick. The DGTrials' designed AMS layout will blow your mind.

AMS will also be one of the first events where DGTrials new practice/competition structure is tested out. No real prizes for this one, but there will be some fun giveaways at the end of the day for the "top" drivers.

As usual, we will try to run our tandem class for instructors and other advanced drivers. The regular A-list includes names like Schulz, Martin, Sapp, Jacobs, and Pratapuenyong (did I spell that right?)

We've also changed the way that we do event registration here at DGTrials, as we are trying to make the process both more streamlined for you, and more informative for us. So please surf over to our forms (http://www.dgtrials.com/forms.php) and fill out an entry form. This also serves as your tandem petition. Make sure you fill it out even if you aren't coming to AMS -- we will be using this form for all of our events.

More information will be posted sooner or later, but get your butts in gear and register! Don't be slacky slackertons!

Hey Kalifornia087 what QT do u work at?

Gainesville, Or Exit 22 off 985. If you are in the area and you see the red rx7 in my sig drop in im usually working evenings.

** QUESTION ** This is my first event and since my only experience is on the street and i have stock suspension and all, i don't think i'll be able to run 3rd gear until i get more high speed wheel time and suspension... Should i be ok running in second or is it high speed only? i want to know before i sign up

Thanks

speed is decided by you. you don't have to do early entry like those of us who are used to it. the course will have high speeds no doubt, but again that doesn't mean you have to use the extra room to haul ass if you don't want to... you just initiate later at a comfortable speed for you.

You dont have to have an account to use paypal just a credit/debit card. If you don't have a card give your cash to someone who does and can pay for you.
