Drift and Gymkhana Trials Association

DGTrials Clinical Success

Atlanta , GA – August 19, 2006 – DGTrials is known for its excellence in driver training and instruction. Just look at the recent Formula Drift top-32 list in Atlanta – 33% of drivers making the cut have turned their tires at DGTrials events. The recent DGTrials instructional clinic held in Atlanta 's Turner Field parking lot was no exception to the trend.

Roughly seventeen drivers came from around the South East to participate in one of DGTrials clinics, where two four-hour sessions were held offering dedicated one-on-one instruction time for attendees. These days serve as both learning time as well as test-and-tune time for drivers and their cars.

“Our instructional clinics are good for drivers of all skill levels,” said Jonathan “Marty” Martin, DGTrials head instructor for the day. “We have drivers here who are experiencing their first time drifting as well as drivers vying for spots at the professional level here to test new settings and hone their technique and style.”

At a typical event, most drivers will get a few minutes of track time totaling less than 30 passes at the track – even that is about ten times more seat time than most autocrossers get for only a moderate increase in price. At DGTrials' clinics, most drivers lose count once they surpass 50 runs. In fact, for the second clinic in a row, participants left the track to purchase, mount and balance tires, only to return to still have ample seat time lef.

“I can't think of any other situation, even at a road course driving school, where drivers get the extreme amount of personal attention and track time that they do here with us, at prices that are a mere fraction of the cost of other activities,” said DGTrials President and CEO, Erik Jacobs. “We're excited that we can present these opportunities to drivers, and are looking at offering similar events in more locations for 2007.”
