Welcome to the 2009 season! Our opening event will be a big competition at Gateway International Raceway. This will be a 2 day event, Friday and Saturday. Friday will consist of a practice day, just like every other Drift Day. There will be instructors on hand, and plenty of run time. Saturday will be a competition consisting of a short practice in the morning, and followed by a tandem competition.

This event will be a Midwest Cup Series event so you will earn points towards winning the season. This year the top drivers of the MWC will be invited to a final event (location TBD) at which they will compete with various other top drivers in the US (more info coming soon).

Track Info
Gateway International Raceway
Gateway is located in Madison, IL, across the river from St. Louis.

Hotel Info

Ramada in Fairview Heights, IL

The group rates are under Simba. There are only like 15 available, I have it for Thursday and Friday night. Seems to be some soccer thing going on so get your rooms quick!

Also I believe this is only for a king bed, some rooms have a pullout couch, but be weary of only one bed in there.

I will look to see if the hotel across the street or something has some rooms left to setup another one if the need be.
