‘Mad’ Mike Whiddett. Crown Range. Behind The Scenes

Behind the scenes action from Mad Mike Whiddett’s recent hoon across the Crown Range in New Zealand aboard a 750hp Mazda FD RX-7.


“I looked out the kitchen window and saw this bloody great white truck outside. I thought either the neighbours are moving or maybe a pop group is coming to town”.

I doubt you’ll find a finer intro to a drift video. Granted are more sideways and tyre smoke-y, but few will put a smile on your face quite like these words from local farmer Muzz Scott when he saw ‘Mad’ Mike Whiddett’s 750hp Mazda FD RX-7 being unloaded from its trailer ahead of the charge down Crown Range.

This Behind the Scenes vid also includes a lesson in how to shoot a Mazda at full lick from a helicopter, insights from Mad Mike himself on how to give his all in front of his devoted fans, and why being a the fiancée of a professional drifter can be quite nerve-wracking from the side-lines.
