Formula D Atlanta – Vaughn Gittin Jr vs Fredric Aasbo run [VIDEO]

Posted on May 13, 2013 In Formula D Fredric Aasbo Vaughn Gittin Jr. Wrecks

For the second consecutive event, Fredric Aasbo was at the center of the most talked about run of the weekend, this time for a different reason. After a brief sprinkle, Aasbo initiated earlier and perhaps using a different method than Vaughn Gittin Jr expected, and JR ended up driving over the top of the hood of Aasbo’s Hankook Tire Scion Racing tC. During Aasbo’s follow run, Aasbo spun out, which led to a 1-more time, in which JR was able to secure the win and move on, eventually ending up on the podium.

This video was randomly found on Youtube, and there seems to be quite a bit of discussion on the outcome.

    Wrecked like many you have an uneducated assumption of what actually happened here so I figured I would just explain it before opinions start flying in.

    Here is what happened from my perspective.

    It obviously was an Insane situation for Both me and Fredric.

    From inside the car here is what I saw and feel happened in this post below.

    We were watching this online. It was obvious a mistake was made and sometimes shit happens in drifting. NO one really is to blame. It was a crazy tangle of cars though! Made for some funny memes. Keep moving forward JR. 5 more rounds to go. Obviously Aasbo and you are past it. Best of luck to both of you on the Championship hunt!

    Guys,

    It appears Vaughn did call us out. I abridged his comment because after speaking with Vaughn he gave me the green light to just make his reply a whole blog post so it can be easier found. It is now live on the site here which includes his full reply.
