Video: Vaughn Gittin Jr. testing his 2011 Ford Mustang drift car


This weekend Vaughn Gittin Jr. begins his quest for back-to-back Formula Drift Championships after a breakthrough 2010 season.  The first race of the season is the ‘Streets of Long Beach’ event in California where Vaughn is trading in his supercharged 5.0 V8 for a naturally aspirated motor which produces 50 less horsepower and weighs almost 200 lbs less.

To get the season started off right Vaughn was out testing his 2011 Ford Mustang drift car in Charlotte, NC in preparation for his first race of the season.  Check out the video after the jump.
