Check out this sweet video of Mad Mike, a drift racer sponsored by Red Bull, pulling off some awesome burnouts and spitting flames post-race at least year’s Tectaloy International Drift Challenge in New Zealand. Mike drives a pretty killer Mazda RX7 that’s been modified like crazy – 26b quad rotor, 513 horsepower engine, Nitto racing tires, and a ton of other customization. Check out the crazy red and blue lights, too – almost looks like a police car! We’ve never seen a fire-spitting police car, though.
Mike has definitely made a name for himself in New Zealand in the world of racing, moving from motorcycle racing to Motocross Freestyle, to now drifting for the last 6 years or so. He’s been a part of several EA racing games, such as the Need for Speed series, where his RX7 and Mazda RX8 have become extremely recognizable. As you can see from this video, Mad Mike is a drifting legend, able to pull off insane moves with ease. It’s definitely no wonder he’s a crowd favorite.
