Julian Smith – #Petrolheads

In this edition of Petrolheads

We meet world-renowned drifter and proprietor of Garage:D, Julian Smith.

After a childhood in Ireland spent watching rallying and racing, and competing in autograss, Julian was desperate to make a living in the motor industry. He was buying and selling Japanese performance cars when he heard about drifting, which had only just arrived in the UK.

He went along to a competition and finished on the podium first time out. He began competing regularly which opened the opportunity to work in Japan promoting the film Tokyo Drift.

Once back at home, he set up Garage:D, one of the UK’s few specialist drift car builders. He also built up a collection of cars that are used for demonstrations and experience days.
