Vaughn Gittin Jr drifts his way into St. Patricks Day! Gittin Jr drifts a “Cloverleaf” in Fort Worth, Texas with a 900 HP Ford Mustang RTR. He is one of the most skilled drifters in the world. So far, he has earned 10 wins, 22 podiums and 1 championship throughout his Formula Drift Career. The drifting beast has a naturally aspirated Roush Yates-built V8 with over 900 hp. Not only is this Ford Mustang powerful, but the engine emits a soul shaking growl. Gittin Jr. said, “Entering a cloverleaf at maximum attack is something I’ve always wanted to do! There was nothing like the sound of the 5.0 revving out under the overpass portion as it echoed every which way.”
In the video, Gittin Jr. races at the chance to show off his car control skills, and the cloverleaf interchange at night was a great opportunity to do just that. Gittin Jr. commented, “It was just the right amount of sketchiness and fun together…and quite a bit more challenging than I had expected linking it all together. And doing it at night made it that much more more intense.” He and this Mustang RTR made international headlines last year by drifting the entire Nurburgring. Check out the video.
