A Lamborghini Huracan drifting at Goodwood Festival is not something you see every day. The Festival of Speed, taking place in England this weekend, has embraced all forms of motorsport. Over the last few years, we’ve seen a few interesting drift machines hamming it up for the fans. Race machinery of all types have been racing up the hillclimb course this weekend and all the action has been posted to the event’s YouTube channel.

One of a kind
Of the drift cars we’ve seen at Goodwood FoS, none can be as crazy as the Lamborghini Huracan see here. The Raging Bull was built by well-known drifter Mike Whiddett. South Africans may recall the Whiddett from when he drifted his rotary powered Mazda up and down Franschhoek Pass in the Western Cape. You can see that video here.
The Kiwi was given the green light to transform a Lamborghini Huracan into a drift machine for a duel with the Dakar-winning Team Kamaz Master truck. You can see Whiddett’s journey with creating the Huracan from arriving at the factory in SantAgata, and getting to grips with a standard car, in this video.

Race to the ball
The distinctive Lamborghini Huracan drift car was debuted in a video in a race against Dakar winner Eduard Nikolaev. The ‘race’ was caught on camera as the two machines battled to get to the Goodwood Festival of Speed ball. These two hooligans, drift, smash and slide their way all over the grounds, generally causing havoc with a spectacular scene catching Whiddett driving underneath the Dakar truck as it gets airborne.
