IRWINDALE, CALIFORNIA, OCTOBER 14, 2018 — With an absolutely incredible night of driving, Vaughn Gittin Jr. put on a drifting clinic by besting his opponents in the final round of Formula Drift 2018. In a season filled with low points, mechanical struggles, strategic and personnel changes, Vaughn took to the finals at The House of Drift and spoiled Frederic Aasbo’s championship run. Though it would not come easy for Vaughn and his Ford Mustang RTR team as they worked tirelessly to secure the victory late into the night following two one more times with Aasbo.
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, MARCH 20, 2017 — Coming off a strong 2016 Formula Drift season, in which Vaughn Gittin Jr. finished third in the championship with two victories and four first place qualifiers, RTR Motorsports is pleased to announce a dual car campaign for the 2017 season. Chelsea DeNofa, winner of last year’s Formula Drift Streets of Long Beach, will be joining the team alongside Vaughn in a brand new 2017 Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5-D. Vaughn’s car features an updated look breaking away from a traditional theme, instead focusing on his personal style mixed with varying degrees of design: mixed paint, vinyl, gloss, satin, matte, and a few special tricks to achieve a livery that is both simple and complex.
