Here is a breakdown of the classes we use at OSW/SGMP
Beginner (Class D and C) – Drivers who have just started drifting and need practice and instructional ride-alongs to improve to the intermediate class. Instructional ride-alongs are provided by A class drivers that OSW/SGMP have approved
Intermediate (Class B) – Drivers who have proven themselves to have control of the car, drivers who can make mostly solid runs (spinning out on occasion).
Tandem (Class A) – Drivers who have proven themselves not only to have control of the car, but also to have control of their car when multiple cars are on the track at the same time. These drivers must have an approved roll cage installed in their car to be in this class. This is the only class permitted to have a single passenger.
