Event Description

Hornsby Industrial Estate is the test facility for a full blown attempt at drift longboarding.

What is it?

Racing down a steep wide hill between cones, cardboard banks and through gates, in slalom and head to head racing.

Speeds over 70, thane lines over 20m, maximum level of stoke and adrenaline.


Ride whatever wheels you want. I was going to ban square-lipped wheels but a set of dusted InHeats will rock on this track and plenty of sideways action will still be going down.


$20 entry.

Rider Limits

  • Opens: 32
  • Womens: 8

What else?

Heaps of give aways, beer and bbq all day.

ASRA points awarded!!!

I'm keen as mustard to kick some ass and will post a demo video of the track and idea.
