Make no mistake though, while Block has built his Hoonicorn is 4WD guise, as this is the style of drifting that allows him to achieve the most ridiculous angles for his Gymkhana series, the RX-7 sends all its 750 hp to the rear wheels.
As a result, Mad Mike was able to use the Goodwood tarmac in a savage manner. While Block went for donuts to impress the audience, Whiddette danced the festival out of that rear axle.
We’ll remind you Whiddett has pulled a similar slip angle stunt at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014, so it was only natural to him to return. However, 2015 marks the official introduction of the Drifting category.
In other words, we’ll constantly see big names in the sliding industry having their way throughout the Hillclimb. Perhaps the footage we bring you from there doesn’t reveal the full extent of the madness, but we have to explain the drivers have an extremely limited space to pull their slides.
