It’s been a little while since we’ve had an update on Mad Mike Whiddett’s Project RADBUL, but as you’ll see in this new clip from Red Bull, big progress is still being made on this crazy little car.
Since the last post, Mike took the Mazda MX-5 on a 450 kilometre (280 mile) journey down New Zealand’s North Island to Pulse Performance Race Engineering – the workshop where the balance of this no holds barred build will be seen out. PPRE’s Warren Overton has been building Mike’s motors since the very beginning, and you might also recognise his name as the brains behind that world-first six-rotor engined Mazda RX-4. From a pure horsepower perspective, the twin Garrett turbo equipped 26B four-rotor engine destined for RADBUL is a different level of lunacy, and as Warren and his team explain in this video, they’re pulling out all the stops.
As this project inches towards completion the excitement factor is growing exponentially – next stop the PPRE dyno!
