Where: Hampton Downs Motor Sport Park, Hampton Downs Road, Te Kauwhata, North Waikato

Restrictions: All Ages


Listed by: Hampton Downs

NZ’s best drifters will again feature in the headline Summer Bash Shootout event, where all comers will go up against Mad Mike in a racing format similar to last year’s.

A star of the show will be Whiddett’s RADBUL, a 1200hp, 4 rotor, twin-turbo Mazda MX5 which he will run alongside several other machines that make up Mad Mike’s fleet.

The event format will be the same as last year with the Triple Threat Team Event and Open Insane Entry rounding out the headline acts. All entrants will enjoy two hours of casual drifting on the International, National and Club Circuits, delivering great value to all participants.

We have simplified the entry process this time around – one entry fee per car, gives you access to the Open Insane Entry, all casual drift sessions and the Triple Threat Team event, if you have two fellow entrants you can team up with.

There will be fantastic prizes and trophies up for grabs for all winners and runners up. In addition to this we have the Mazda Skidpan Gymkhana and International track cruise open to the public.

Off the track there will be the Meguiar’s Hard Park Show ‘n Shine for people to display their cars and Mad Mike will be wandering around picking his favourite cars. There will be a Family Fun Zone, VIP Trackside Lounge, including a private lunch with Mad Mike and New Zealand’s top drift stars, a new viewing platform and grandstands so the fans can get up close to the action.

Come join us for the second instalment of Mad Mike’s Summer Bash – the best drift events on the best drift track in the country.

See the cars, see the stars — Hampton Downs & Mazda present Mad Mike’s Summer Bash. Summer Bash Main Event – Top 16 Shootout. Top 16 Mad Mike Summer Bash Shootout will feature NZ’s very best drifters going head to head in a shoot out on the International Drift Circuit.

Entry by invite only.
Summer Bash Allcomers Entry Combo – $395 per car
Insane Entry Drift Challenge is open to all comers who will all enjoy exclusive access to Hampton Downs new International Circuit . This will be one of the feature events, as drivers of all levels go up against the stars and be judged on the two cornered ‘Double Bastard’ and awarded for their insane entry and commitment throughout the section.  This is the final event of the day and entrants will have access to the full 4km International Circuit for one and a half hours . Major prizes are on offer for best drift through the two turn ‘Double Bastard’ that connects the new track to the old.

Nitto Tire Triple Threat Team Drift is open to crews of three with free rein to navigate the judged section in their own style. “We’re looking for those three cars syncing on the track,” says Whiddett, “but we’re also looking for something explosive. It might be one car drifts wide and the other two pass them on the inside. Or they might all do flying 360’s across the finish line. It’s a chance to get creative and put on a real spectacle for the fans.” Enter your crew of 3, navigate the judged section of the new international drift circuit in your own style and be in to win. A one hour session – controlled release – unlimited runs within time allowed. Entry is limited to 8 teams so be quick.
