One of the world's top actors pushes himself to the max to master some of the toughest speed disciplines in this new series on Discovery Channel
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.
But being a speed freak is not enough. 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.
In this brand new four-part series on Discovery Channel, 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.
He will be helped by incredible mentors in each of the four disciplines: rally driving, aerobatics, drag racing, and land speed records.
No Limits will show Idris Elba as you have never seen him before. Armed with no experience but an abundance of courage, grit, and determination, Idris Elba: No Limits captures every high and low as he takes on the biggest challenge of his life.
Idris Elba: No Limits starts Monday 6th July at 9pm on Discovery Channel, Sky Channel 520
