BIOGRAPHY

Matty Hill is the owner and driver of his own self-funded drift team from Sydney Australia. Matt has always had a strong passion for drifting which led him to the track for the first time in 2010 just after finishing a long 2 year build. After entering his first few competitions in 2013 Matt decided he needed something more competitive. So over a 9 month period he built the new 200SX in his back shed, late nights and early mornings, time off work, it all happened. He was dedicated to creating a machine capable of anything. He’s always trying to improve on and off the track. Since finishing the car in February 2015 he has already made a name for himself and has pulled out a few surprises. 

If he isn’t racing or at events, he’s at home, working on the car making himself and the car better for the next event.
