BALTIMORE, Md. (September 23, 2013) – The past month has been non-stop for Vaughn Gittin Jr. and the Mustang RTR Drift Team. From drifting all over Europe at various motorsports events, to qualifying 1st and finishing 5th place at Formula Drift in Texas, to winning the World Drift Series in China, Vaughn has rigorously been continuing his world-wide advocacy for the sport of drifting.
Over the weekend, Vaughn was in Luoyang, China competing at Round 2 of the World Drift Series, China’s premiere drifting series. WDS was held in the Luoyang New District Stadium with over 20,000 fans in attendance and broadcasted live on CCTV, China’s major TV network. Vaughn qualified in 2nd place and fought hard all night to make it all the way to the finals, where he was matched with Chinese driver Zhang Shaohua. After an insane battle, Vaughn managed to take the win, his second consecutive win at WDS, and holds the points lead for the series with two events left to go. Watch this VIDEO news segment from CCTV highlighting the event and Vaughn’s win.
“I am pumped to win our second event in a row at WDS in China,” says Vaughn Gittin Jr. “The Chinese drivers have really stepped up their game this year and we had some very hard-fought battles. It is awesome see the progression of drifting and huge turnout for these events in China!”
