Club Loose Texas events are focused on having fun drifting with your friends first and foremost. No competition, no egos, and no whining! In order for this to happen, please make sure you read, understand, and follow the rulebook below. Also, please make sure you attend driver meetings at the beginning of each event!
Our home track is at San Antonio Karting Complex, and the layout will depend on the run groups that day. We will be alternating between upper level (A and experienced B group drivers) and lower level (C and newer B group drivers) each event.
For example: Fresh Moves (2/27) will be lower level while Opening Moves (3/27) will be upper level. Plan accordingly and watch social media for updates on the schedule as they may change based on driver availability.
Drivers will be divided up into 3 separate run groups based upon your driving skill and experience. If you wish to move up to a higher run group, find one of the CLTX staff and ask us to watch! Drive harder, progress, and move up is the idea for all drivers. For lower level events, all staff is on hand to give you pointers and advice as well as ride along at your request.
CLTX strives to create a club mentality for all drivers. Being a part of the club should be an honor and something you are proud of! As a part of this, being respectful of other club members and our track is paramount.
All drivers must pre-register on our webstore linked above. We typically sell out pretty quickly, and thus tickets are not available at the gate.
All drivers need to ensure they read the rule book and are familiar with what is expected of your vehicle. Click the link below to be taken to the current version of the rule book.
Driver Groups Explained
- Drivers are broken into A, B, and C groups based on experience. Driving in the right group gives you, and all of the other drivers in that group the best experience on track. Trying to drive in a group that you are not ready for is dangerous and will not happen. You must be approved by CLTX staff before moving up to a higher level of run group. A & B groups will each run the track for an hour, alternating on the hour, in order to ensure each group has adequate time to drive.
A Group (Tandem Drivers) - Drivers that have all the required safety equipment, skill level, etc. These are the drivers that have no issues making it around the track and are working on getting closer to other cars and running a better, faster line. Just because you have a roll cage does not put you in A group. These are also the drivers who need very little policing when it comes to grid and driving with others. If it's your first time tandem drifting, you will be expected to follow for one full day.
B Group (Solo Drivers) - Drivers are those still learning their cars, learning the track, and learning the rules. These are the drivers working to link the course, and starting to understand what the right driving line is. They are figuring out what they need to do in the car to make it work and move up to A Group.
C Group (Skidpad) - Drivers that are just starting out either with drifting or with a new car. These drivers will be limited to a skid pad “figure 8” setup without the need to take breaks for other groups. The goal for these drivers is to feel comfortable with their ability to initiate a drift, transition, and modulate angle without spinning before moving up to B group. They are also not permitted to tandem or enter the main track until approved by CLTX staff. Ensure before coming out, you have at the bare minimum: an LSD or welded differential, coilovers or a good shock and spring setup, and a working handbrake. A supportive drivers seat is also recommended.
Spectators are always welcome! There is no need to pre-purchase like drivers, you simply pay at the gate. It is $15 per person, kids under 12 are free.
Bring a helmet (must be SNELL certified)! Anyone over the age of 18 can get a ride along.
Seating area, concessions, and restrooms are all available on site.
