Watch Mike Whiddett drift a 750 hp Mazda RX-7 on New Zealand's Crown Range

The Crown Range in New Zealand has 47 corners is 1076 metres in elevation and 10.4km long. The country’s highest paved roadway was closed for the first time ever so one man, Mike Whiddett could drift it in a 750 horsepower Mazda RX-7.

“I think drifters have an innate ability to slip from reality when driving up a road like the Crown Range in normal circumstances. We imagine drifting through the turns, the gear changes, the footwork, the hand brake and of course stomping on the gas. So for me, having the opportunity to get behind the wheel of my machine, push it to the limit and conquer the Crown is a dream turned into a reality,” says Whiddett.

As always with Red Bull supported projects, this is one amazing video so sit back, hit play and enjoy!
