Video: Drifting hooliganism is the perfect father-son bonding activity

17th February 2023

This must be the best ever example of ‘father-son time’. Taking two absolutely ludicrous drifting machines and yeeting them around an empty race track.

Mad Mike Whiddett has absolutely obliterated any chance the rest of us had of being the coolest dad on the planet. His son, Lincoln Whiddett has clearly learned from a skilled teacher, and his skill behind the wheel is already far superior to anything we could hope to achieve.

The sight of both of these guys trailing an unholy amount of smoke behind them is impressive stuff, especially at such close quarters. We imagine the smell inside Mike’s incredibly souped-up Mazda RX-8 is quite something.

Also, the way he somehow manages to reverse the car, literally, into a corner at the 1:10 mark is ludicrous.

Welcome to Goodwood Elevenses, a mid-morning helping of motoring-related amusement to help break up your day. Watch the last video: Onboard Tsukuba Toyota AE86 drift train
