Using & abusing his 600bhp powered Ford Focus RS that he was currently using in this years 2016 World Rallycross Championship.
Filmed at an abandoned industrial estate in Buffalo New York City, this isn’t as exotic as his recent videos like Los Angeles or Dhubia but Gymkhana 9 more then makes up for it with his insane driving.
Mad Mike Drifts Badbul in South Africa. That’s right Mad Mike Whiddett and Redbull have made another stylish drifting video along Franschhoek Pass. Whiddett tore up the 9 mile long mountain pass hitting speeds of 154mph in on a road which normally has a speed limit of 60mph!
“There is only so much you can do before you arrive,” explains Kiwi drifter Mad Mike Whiddett. “Google earth, some photos, maps – you know – that sort of thing. With most of the stuff we’re doing, something like Franschhoek Pass, you only really get a feel for it once on the ground.
Watch Mad Mikes video below, Using Badbul, his monster quad rotor engined Mazda RX-8, putting out over 800 screaming bhp
Diffing, what does this mean? Unless you live in Ireland you may not of heard of Diffing before. I use to think it was what the Irish called drifting but no it goes much deeper then that.
What is a Differ? A differ is usually a youth, a lad or ladette with a RWD car of some sorts. They are either looked up to by some or hated by many!
Just check some of the comments on youtube differ vids that either praise there antics or slag the boy/girl racers of but hey, we were all reckless youths at some point in our lives….. 😉
Diffing is just a different name for donutting in your car. In other parts of the world Diffing is called donuts or donutting, where a driver with a RWD rear wheel drive or sometimes 4WD car will usually from a standstill, will rev the engine hard and let the clutch fly out overpowering the traction from the tyres, then while balancing the steering and throttle, the car will go round and round in circles smoking up the tyres.
This has to be seen to be believed! Armless Man Drifting, There are many skillful drivers, drifters and race drivers out there but this Polish drifter Bartek Ostalowski takes things to another level altogether.
Drifting requires a lot of skill and if you thought drifting was some kind of dark art try doing it with No arms!
Bartek who is only 26 years old had to have his arms amputated 10 years ago after a bad accident, although this didn’t hold him back and through sheer determination, hard work and currently using a highly modified R34 Nissan Skyline, powered by a LS V8 engine, he is a Armless Man Drifting like no other!
Say no more, watch this inspirational video of the young polish drifter in action……
Project CARS Racing Sim was finally released on 7th of may 2015. After many set backs & Delays.The question is, Does it Live up to the Hype? Well it very Nearly does, with a few tweaks and adjustments Project CARS is going to be very hard to top!

Formula Renault racer Oli Webb who currently competes in the ELMS (European Le Mans Series) & Nicolas Hamilton who competes in the European Touring Car Cup and Renault Cup.
Simply put the creators of this video turn a Rousch Stage 3 Mustang into a virtual controller. They connect various sensors to the Mustang measuring, throttle, braking & steering input as well as many other sensors to map a virtual world of Formula Drift driver Matt Powers in Virtual Reality.
We’re still a while away from driving with Oculus Rift but the video offers an exciting glimpse at what virtual reality could hold for the future. Imagine a firefighter using this technology for training purposes or maybe a more everyday use like entertaining kids on a long road trip.
Mercedes Drift Missile V12 C600 beast! There are not many C Class Mercs around on the drift scene. Well what if you decide to drop a V12 lump into a C class? That is exactly what Amon Oliver decided to do 🙂
Fitting a W120 V12 engine mated to a BMW 530D gearbox into a C class might seem to be more effort then its worth but for this man Amon Oliver who is clearly a big fan of Mercedes, nothing else would do.
Looking at the results it does look to be highly entertaining.
