Midway through last week I was invited to the unveiling of Bex Bennett's freshly rebuilt R32 Skyline drift car, and with the event being held at a bar just down the road from my office, how could I refuse? To celebrate the occasion, Bex and her team put an entertaining night together for their friends, family and sponsors, which included prizes and dinner at The District in Te Rapa, Hamilton...

Video > Mad Mike Drifting at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

When I heard that Mad Mike had been invited to demonstrate his freshly rebuilt FD RX-7 drift car at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed, I wondered how he would manage to control the sideways smoke machine on such a tight and narrow course. But as this video proves, not only does he wow the crowds with the sight of the aggressive looking widebody RX-7 and sound of that 4-rotor peripheral ported engine, but he also recognises the significance of being part of such a prestigious event...

Tags: events, drifting, red bull, drift shifters, mad mike, speedhunters, brad lord, brent shaw

I'm still a bit bummed about missing out on the Red Bull Drift Shifters event in Auckland in the weekend, but thankfully there are plenty of photos and coverage of Mad Mike's exciting new brainchild circulating around at the moment. By all accounts the event was a great success, with lots of positive feedback from the 10,000+ crowd, as well as the organisers and participants. It sounds like Red Bull Drift Shifters has the potential to go global, so hopefully I wont miss out on the next event...

Of course, being Jewish, I had second thoughts about traveling all the way to Ardmore airport today to see the latest creation 4 & Rotary promotions had come up with; The Ardmore Showdown – Wings vs Wheels. I am not very keen on planes, but my motorsport morals lead me to the event, which i am now extremely thankful for!

The event was absolutely jam packed with cars, planes and people.  The event hosted drag racing, a show & shine, drift display’s, stunt drivers and riders, an airplane show and races where 6 second drag cars faced planes! The entertainment wasn’t only for the ‘big...

Check out this video of an FD RX-7 drifting almost the entire course of a hill climb held by the Rotorua Car Club. As if racing up a narrow road with banks, trees and fences isn't scary enough - try doing it sideways!
