The Memphis Circuit (our drift track) allows for 4 graded corners per lap.
You will be drifting a total of 8 corners.
A corner will be logged as a success if over 70% of that corner was drifted.
You start at 80 points (maximum achievable) and we take off 5 points for each corner that wasn’t over 70% drifted.
Smoothly linking drifts throughout your 2 laps can earn you up to 5 points towards your final score.
A good line, touching apexes our outside clipping points on the track can earn you up to 5 points towards your final score.
Good throttle control, not locking brakes up, steering inputs, hand positioning and smooth movements can earn you up to 5 points towards your final score.
Reacting with required inputs (eg: extending drifts by use of handbrake or feint) or performing a perfectly executed drift without reaction required, entering drifts at the correct speed and with great execution can earn you up to 5 points towards your final score.
The total score will be given to you out of 100 by your instructor, on a card, at the end of your experience.
This score is not negotiable.
So what happens when I’ve done the Trophy Challenge and got my score?
1. Show off what you’ve got.
2. Prove how good you are by comparing your score against not only your peers,
but our instructors and our resident karting champion
3. Get in next to your instructor, score them!
Engage in fun rivalry and collab with other influencers
to see who can earn the best score.
Create a huge amount of unique content on site, meeting other people, checking out cars and having a great social time in a unique setting.
