Track Driving
More info

Gatebil handler selvsagt først og fremst om frikjøring på banen. For både bane og gatebiler. Sånn har det alltid vært! Og for at ALLE skal kunne finne sin plass tilpasset type bil, ambisjonsnivå og kjørestil. Her er oversikt om alle typer av kjøring som som skal skje på Vålerbanen 2024!

Track driving for everyone
More info

STRAIGHT LINE
This heat is for you who want to drive on the track with your car, but not slide or drift. In the straight line group, you can test your sports car, rebuilt car or just see what your old GTI can do on the track. Maybe to try to improve your lap times or just feel like driving over the speed limit legally. In this group, therefore, drifting is not allowed. If you want to skid or drift, do not drive the Straight Line!

OPEN LINE
When you would like to try out sliding through the corners or you are just in the beginning of your drifting carrier, this is the heat for you. Drive fast and drift in the corners. In Open Line, you keep a little more distance between the cars so that everyone has the opportunity to test drifting in a slightly “calmer” way. You are not allowed to drift on the straights or use the hand brake to set up the car into the corners. If you are a racing driver in drifting, you should not drive in this group, then it is Drift Line that suits you better!

DRIFT LINE ROOKIE
Drift Line ROOKIE fits for you who just want to drift – preferably all over the course at all times! You can practice your skills and drift all the way around the track. If you dont have 1000 horsepowers and are not a trained drifter – this is the pass for you!

DRIFT LINE PRO
Here we find the fastest drifting PRO drivers. If you are a racing driver in drifting, this is where you should drive. Here you drive faster and with less distance to each other with 100% operation all the time. If you have drift licence and a car with plenty of horsepowers this might be the heat for you!

ABOUT GATEBIL EXTREME
Gatebil Extreme is Gatebil’s own Time Attack and Racing series, where everything from home-built budget cars to fully professional former factory cars participate. The series follows the FIA’s safety requirements, but otherwise you are almost free to do what you want with the car, and several have engines of over an incredible 1000 horses. Gatebil Extreme was started in 2005, and since then over 200 cars/drivers have participated.

EXTREME TIME ATTACK
In Time Attack, the best lap time applies. Here, the course is open for 45 minutes, where participants can choose to drive just 1 round, or 18 as the maximum allowed. Everyone can drive in the pit lane or depot at any time to change tires and adjust the car, and out on the track again to try to drive even faster. It is 5 race in the series, 1 at each festival. The times from the Extreme Time Attack provide the starting line-up for the Extreme Race.

EXTREME RACE
Extreme Race is a racing series with a joint start and first to the finish line. How many laps – varies from the track competition is held on – Vålerbanen, Mantorp park or Rudskogen. It is 10 race in the series, 2 at each festival.
