Mad Mike Drifting Crown Range in New Zealand | (VIDEO)

Drift ‘King’ Mad Mike conquers, Crown Range, the highest road in New Zealand. This epic video is already being named as one of the best drift videos of 2013. 

Red Bull drift driver Mad Mike Whiddett had the chance to push his car to new limits when he conquered the Crown Range Road. 

He truly tested his “Madbul” Mazda FD RX-7 to the extremes on Crown Range road which is a 6.5-mile strip road with 47 corners and elevations as high as 3,500 feet. Not only is it one of the highest roads but is the also the most demanding and technical drives in New Zealand. However, living up to his name, nothing phased Mad Mike as driving this was a highlight of his career:

“having the opportunity to get behind the wheel of my machine, push it to the limit and conquer the Crown is a dream turned into a reality,” says Whiddett. 

Take a bit of time and watch this video, it has the all slow motion drifts, flame-spitting exhausts and revving engines anyone can handle
