‘Mad Mike’ Whiddett has big plans for Red Bull Drift Shifters

Auckland, New Zealand
December 6, 2014

Two years ago New Zealand driver ‘Mad Mike’ Whiddett dreamed up an event to bring drifting from the racetrack to the city streets. He finished fourth in the first Red Bull Drift Shifters, but at the end of last year he set the record straight. He won on the pinball-themed track with some smokin’ hot manoeuvres, including this sideways slide under the semi-trailer big rig.
