Mad Mike Whiddett today announced that he will be competing in the 2012 D1GP championship in Japan. And, as you might have guessed, he'll be behind the wheel of a quad rotor RX-7. However as this teaser photo shows, it's a different car to the 'MADBUL' FD RX-7 that was nominated as the 2011 Speedhunters Car of the Year. Dubbed the 'JAPBUL', the D1GP RX-7 was built by Magic Co in Japan, and is set to debut at the Odaiba round on April 14.

JAPBUL is sick and good luck Mike but MADBUL is a part of kiwi drift history and in my opinion the best RX7 in the world, home made chaos machine!
That thing is so much neater than Madbull, the rims really set it off. Cant wait to see it in action!
The Car is from the garage "Magic Total Car Produce", it's their new D1 car and of course got Mad Mike to pilot for the 2012 season. It will feature a N/A 4 rotor engine but it just doesn't look as hard core as Mike's NZ "Mad Bull". This is because this garage makes there own body kits and of course that is what's on the car. Go Mikeeee!
Finally!!! Mr.Mad Mike will be competing with the best of the best. 2012 will be a great yr. for drifting. Mikes going to D1GP in Japan and Daigos coming to the good ol US of A !!! Cant wait for these seasons to start. On a side note, Im loving the car in its entirity but the wheels have to change for me :p I miss the Mad Mike we all know who rocks the lowest offsets lol. Nonetheless I probably wont be able to see those wheels much anyway knowing how smokey Mike gets. Keep it going Mr. Whiddett you have my support.
MADBUL was build over a few years and has been evolving from a very small budget Kiwi drift car to what it is now. Whats awesome about MADBUL was that MadMike has done a lot of it himself and not a fully race garage built car. these 2 sev's are completely different in that respect. Good luck bro, Go Hard and represent NZ! YEAH.
