FOR the first time in Goodwood Festival of Speed history, the 2015 event will feature a special category
FOR the first time in Goodwood Festival of Speed history, the 2015 event will feature a special category dedicated to the art of drifting on June 25 to 28 — with a number of the discipline’s biggest names lined up to take part.
Red Bull athlete “Mad” Mike Whiddett and Monster Energy athlete Ken Block, who attends with Ford, are two of the best-known exponents of drifting, and both will return to thrill the sell-out crowds on all three days of live motorsport action in the “Catch my Drift?” category.
New Zealander “Mad” Mike’s flat-out and fearless driving at last year’s event earned him the Spirit of the Festival award. His style embodies the theme of the 2015 event, at which he again brings his sensational Mazda RX-7 ready for more tyre-smoking action.
YouTube phenomenon Block, whose stunning Gymkhana videos have racked up more than 300million views online, brings his incredible 850bhp Ford Mustang, dubbed the Hoonicorn, and will be joined by another Monster athlete — Festival of Speed debutant Buttsy Butler and his Toyota Soarer.
