Drift ring 2023/2024

Drift ring is intended for all young tech enthusiasts who want to be able to do things themselves and understand the principles of how technology works.

In the drift ring, young people acquire the basic knowledge and skills necessary to enter model sports and, in fact, all other technical sports.
You learn to notice details, their importance, and acquire real skills to deal with any technical problems.
In addition to learning the driving techniques and competition strategies of a model car, the model circle talks about the construction of the car and the principles of its maintenance.
They learn to know and use the necessary tools and maintenance tools.
Among other things, each child designs a body for the chassis of his car and realizes it himself.
During the preparation of the chassis and body, driving exercises are done with existing cars.

For the first few times, the focus is on driving and what model drifting is all about. Then they dive behind the desks and start building their very own competition model. To keep motivation up, you can also drive the club models at the end of each lesson.

We will start the drift ring work in the fall by building the car first. It is the same car that every member gets for himself after the drift ring that takes place from September to the end of April.
All members of the drift ring will have their own set of initial parts, which must be built into a competition model from start to finish (the necessary tools for construction are available at the club).
In order to make it even more informative and exciting, we also invite specialists from our field to visit, who show how to prepare and set up the cars to be faster on the track and teach how to behave in different competition situations.
The activity of the drift ring is planned throughout the school year from September to the end of April. You can join the drift ring even after the beginning of our studies

Unfortunately, technical sports are a bit more expensive than, for example, chess or singing, but with our many years of experience, we have come to a solution where instead of the thousands of euros in the past, the investment is many times smaller through a smart choice of equipment. For the sake of clarity, we will break it down in components to avoid possible surprises. We have also solved a situation where a change of interests does not leave valuable equipment purchased for a lot of money to gather dust.
