The Sky Insurance team recently visited Drift Limits in Bovingdon, Hertfordshire for a staff reward day out; or Drifting Training as we prefer to call it! The reason for our visit was to give our staff a taste of driving some performance cars but also sample the Motorsport of Drifting. The best way to experience Drifting is to try it for yourself, so we did!
Our experience started on a sunny but cool Sunday morning. We arrived at the Drift Limits site office at Bovingdon Airfield and were greeted by the friendly team of instructors. A leisurely but professional briefing of the days itinerary followed which we digested over cups of tea, coffee and Mars bars. The breakfast of champions! Continue reading

After what seemed like an off season which would never come to an end, the British Drift Championship (BDC) finally kicked back into gear with Round 1 last weekend at the Lydden Hill circuit in Kent.
Driftworks Phil Morrison was entered into the Super Pro category in the Team Sky Insurance / Driftworks Nissan Skyline. This well known car has been in the Driftworks stable for around eight years and has certainly seen it’s fair share of action!
Another month or so into ownership and Lauren’s stunning GT86 has seen it’s first trackday at the challenging but fun Anglesey circuit in North Wales.
“In short, the tyres seem to get a bit hot after a lap or two. But, they remain consistent and the car is easy to trail brake into a corner to tip it in, then on the throttle and you can just hold the most lurid slides!” Continue reading

We headed to the annual Classic Car Show held at the Birmingham NEC on Friday 16th November with our tickets kindly being provided by our new friends at the Lamborghini Club.
We were glad to avoid the main weekend rush as this is a very popular show with nearly 1500 cars on display and many more visitors, the show extends over a dozen or so of the NEC’s main display halls and it really is a full day out, or a weekend if you want to take everything in! The NEC is in a great central location which makes this annual show one of the, if not the best, classic car shows in the U.K. Continue reading

Please read on for a summary of the event, much more to follow in due course!

Arriving at Santa Pod we were greeted by friendly Mkiv Supra Club volunteer organisers who collected our entry passes and assigned us paperwork for the drifting and drag racing. Santa Pod quickly filled up, a convoy from South Mimms M25 services had … Continue reading
