Mad Mike shows off drifting skills in 1,000bhp MX-5

By Faiming_low on 26 Dec 2015 in Videos

Attached Image In the world of being professional drifter, Red Bull athlete 'Mad Mike' Whiddett from New Zealand is easily one of the best guys around. And you can really see why we think so in his latest drift video. Entitled 'RADBUL', 'Mad Mike' gets behind the wheel of his custom Mazda MX-5 and drifts the heck out of it at the Highlands Motorsport Park in New Zealand

For those who are wondering, the MX-5 is heavily modified and reportedly, only the headlights and taillights are similar to a normal MX-5. Using a custom 2.6-liter rotary engine with two turbochargers, it delivers a whopping a thousand plus horses. Like a drift cars, it comes with a customary towering rear spoiler and widebody kit. Special steering components allow 'Mad Mike' to slide it at some crazy angles too.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

And people say the MX5 is under powered.
