Customers Cars – Richards S13 is going to Gymkhana Grid

  • On August 8, 2014


Long time customer of Safely Insured, Richard owns this Nissan 200sx and when the rest of the drift world are immersed in engine swaps with big V8’s going into a lot of competitive drift cars, this beauty still runs its original CA18DET engine, with a very long list of mods to go with it.

Richard decided against the competitive side of the drift scene and favoured using his skills and car to offer passenger rides at the car shows we all know and love. However this year he will be applying for his British Drift Pro Licence and impressively has entered Monster Energy & Ken Block’s Gymkhana Grid Event! But that’s not all, having driven half way across Europe to compete, successfully won the qualifying heat in France and will be taking part in the Final In Madrid in October!


Not only are we very happy to be insuring Richard and his cars, but we’ll be keeping an eye on his progress with further reports to come!

Get over to Richard’s Facebook Page and give him a like to show your support!
