As one of the world's top actors, Hollywood superstar Idris Elba has the world at his feet. An experienced driver, he does all his own stunts, and is no stranger to a dramatic and high-speed car chase. But what fans may not realise is that Idris has secretly harboured a life-long passion to enter the thrilling world of motorsports. Discovery's brand new four-part series, Idris Elba: No Limits follows him as he pushes himself to the max to master some of the toughest speed disciplines in the world, before taking to both land and air to participate in some of the most fiercely fought competitions in sport.
To succeed in these fields, Idris must learn four completely different skill sets: skills that it usually takes years to master. Along the way, he will test his body, mind and courage to the absolute limit, before pitting himself against professionals. He will be helped by incredible mentors in each of the four disciplines: rally driving, aerobatics, drag racing, and land speed records.
Idris meets Irish racing legend Jimmy McRae. Jimmy takes Idris out for a spin in his Sierra Cosworth.
Idris races in the Circuit of Ireland and feels the pressure to succeed.
