This week we are going in a completely different direction by talking to Jonny from Drift Limits, boasting the UK’s fastest drifting experience. If you’re a fan of driving days, super cars and all things speedy, then this is definitely an experience worth reading about.
1) Hi Jonny, please explain your journey as 'Drift Limits' so far.
Since the early days of getting into motorsport I did a few driving experiences but really felt they lacked integrity for the keen petrol head, I found they were very restricted in terms of how hard you can push the cars. I have been racing for 3 years and then moved onto become an ARDS instructor with the ambition of developing a driving experience where you can really lean about car control and follow our motto ‘ find your limit’ at the UK’s fastest drifting experience.
The type of job it is means you’re constantly on your toes. It can be incredibly rewarding watching guests progress their skills in a short period of time. I guess I’m fortunate in being able to say I love what I do.
2) Yes that must be rewarding, what has been the biggest or most memorable event you have provided?
Ah, so many awesome days! Last week we had Harry Main and Buttsy Butler from Monster come up and play. We also had a demo shoot for Jack Reaper stunts which was good fun despite all the screaming in my ear!
3) Sounds great! Is there any inside information you can give us?
Yes, definitely – come to one of our days and we will divulge! Ha, really just listen to the instructors to get the most out of the day. Be patient and you will progress quicker. Some people find the 3rd gear corner very daunting sideways at 60mph. You have to focus and forget about what you previously thought was possible.
After a session at Drift Limits you’ll come away a better driver and obtain new skills in the car control department. The track experiences allow guests to drive dream cars that are bonkers fast!
4) Do you have any exciting plans for the future that you'd like to tell us about?
Big plans – the track layout is currently being extended and resurfaced, and it is already the fastest drifting experience in the UK. We have a Ferrari 430 GT3 race car and Formula Renaults joining the fleet soon, so we’ll have quite a few more experiences to offer looking forward.
Thank you for talking to us, Jonny, definitely something I would love to try! Stay tuned for more information drifting experiences.
