It was 2014 when Mad Mike’s first trip to Goodwood was in 2014 with a flame-spitting Mazda RX7 ‘Radbull’, a very sideways machine that returned to shred yet more tyres the following year. In 2016 Mike brought along an 800 horsepower Mazda RX8 ‘BadBull’, in 2017 a 1,200 horsepower, twin-turbo ND MX-5, and in 2018 his old RX-7 but with an RX-3 front end.
It was something of a surprise, then, to learn that Mad Mike’s drift missile of choice for 2019 would not be a Mazda, or Japanese for that matter. Instead, Mad Mike opted for a Lamborghini Huracan, or the ‘Nimbul’ as it’s affectionately known.
We caught up with Mad Mike to hear how he and his team brought the nitrous-powered, V10, rear-wheel-drive Huracan drift car to life, and what it was like to drive it at Goodwood for the very first time.
