At the early age of 2 Jodie was an early developer in the adrenaline junkie scheme of things. Jodie contributes her passion for speed to her surroundings and experiences. Growing up with her father Pete being a mechanic by trade and her “petrol head” older brother Mike pushed her towards her current state.

Jodie credits a lot of her skills to her early years of “experimenting” with cars. In 2008 at the age of 20 Jodie got her first legitimate taste of drifting as we know it. While attending a Drift Motorsport track day she was given an opportunity to drive her boyfriend Drew Donovan’s S13 Silvia for a lap and that was it! She was hooked! Jodie immediately set out to sell her daily driving car and soon after picked up her first Nissan Skyline 20DETT.

This was setup on cut suspension and a shimmed diff to learn the ropes of drifting – the hard way I might add, that road cars don’t make for good track cars! The skyline was sold and Jodie brought a tow vehicle and a Nissan Cefiro 20DET. Now the 2JZ GT86 Toyota Supra she’s driving has a T56 six speed gearbox. The clutch is Exceedy 5 puk, lightweight flywheel. It’s got custom twin scroll manifold, three inch exhaust. Suspension: Hakon Racing Coilovers, Chicken Fab custom suspension arms. The eight point roll cage was fabricated by Jodies big bro, and there’s a custom hydraulic handbrake.

Jodie Verhulst is currently drifting for team DMNZ (Drift Motorsport New Zealand) and she’s going for the win! Drift Motorsport was started in 2007 by Drew and Jodie. Drift Motorsport caters for  experienced drivers right through to the absolute beginners. Check out her 2JZ GT86 Toyota Supra!
