A Land Rover 90 is not the usual choice of drift car but for Les it makes perfect sense!
A keen ‘off-roader’ and 4×4 racer, Les is no stranger to building high powered Land Rovers, this particular one has a highly tuned Rover V8 engine!
When his brother sadly passed away, Les wanted to live out his dream for him and go drifting. Using his specialist expertise in Land Rovers, building this drift monster was the logical way to go about this!
Les built this car and somehow managed to keep the weight down to 1200kg, about the average weight of a mid sized drift car!
After some time training with our team of professional instructors Les was starting to get to grips with the Landy, and grip was not something that it was short of! With a wide wheel base, this just grips and goes! Watch the full video here to see how Les got on with his first training visit to the Prodrift Academy UK!
