Nathan Heathcote on the farm

An unusual piece of feature-led PR for us, focusing on our young driver Nathan Heathcote and his family business and passion, resulted in a great piece in Farmers Weekly.

"It’s the experiences his farming background has given him that makes him the highly talented racing driver he is today – an adrenaline-fuelled journey that has taken him to race tracks around the world."

Who’s your racing hero? Rally driver Colin McRae – “If in doubt, flat out”.

What’s your favourite race track? If it’s circuit racing then it’s got to be Brands Hatch because it’s home turf. If we’re talking about Rallycross, then Holjes in Sweden is great.

How would you describe your driving style? Pretty chilled and relaxed, despite the Rallycross and farm driving.

What’s been your favourite car on track? The 600hp Citroen DS3 I drove in the RX2 class. You’d never get tired of the speed and it always put a smile on my face.

Your favourite farm vehicle? The John Deere 6930 Premium – mostly because of the noise from the exhaust.

What’s your favourite farm job? I like mowing because it’s pretty flat out and very satisfying to see where you’ve been.

Your least favourite farm job? It has to be drilling – it’s a long wait until you see the crop coming up.
