Mad Mike Formula Drift Round 5 Montreal Canada 2016

MadMike and the Red Bull, Nitto Tire Mazda MX5 make their first appearance in Montreal, Canada.

With no engine in the car after the previous round of Formula Drift, Warren from Pulse Performance in New Zealand arrived in early to install the engine back into the MX5. During the previous round of Formula Drift in New Jersey the engine let go just prior to qualifying leaving the team with a disappointing finish.

With the finishing touches done the Mazda MX5 was fired up and was soon out on track for testing and set up.

The car felt great during the shake down but connected with the bump in the wall ride which saw the entire side of Mikes car requiring replacement parts fitted. The team did an amazing job to get the car ready again for competition.

Mike paired off against Odi in his first battle once again connecting with the same spot on the wall which greatly affected his line handing the win over the Odi.

The next round moves on to Seattle, WA.
