Rarely do a couple of weeks pass without Speedhunters’ own Mad Mike Whiddett decimating a set or 10 of tyres. But those Nitto NT-05s that met their smoky fate over the past few days, did so in the most dignified way possible – at the prestigious Goodwood Festival of Speed.
We had Jonathan on the ground at Goodwood House in West Sussex, United Kingdom, over the weekend, so you can expect some beautiful coverage from the annual event over the coming week – plus a driver blog from Mike himself in the not to distance future. In the meantime though, make sure you check out this clip of Mike and MADBUL – now in its new Gen 6 Rocket Bunny guise – tearing up Lord March’s normally tranquil driveway in spectacular four-rotor fashion.
Never before has a drift car been seen attacking the Goodwood hill sideways, so the opportunity to do so was a pretty big deal for Mike, in more ways than one. I’m sure he’ll have lots to tell!
Once you’ve viewed the clip up top, take a look at the Day 1 interview above – then stay tuned for more 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed coverage coming soon…
