Vaughn Gittin Jr. Unveils 2015 Mustang RTR Livery

Vaughn Gittin Jr. released the look of his 2015 Mustang RTR demo machine for the 2015 season. The livery has a tweaked look and design which he debuted on the snow for this year. Vaughn is staying on Nitto Tires for 2015 while it seems about everyone else is switching up tire brands for the new season. You won’t see this 2015 Mustang RTR at Round 1 Long Beach just yet as Vaughn will be sticking with his 2014 chassis to compete in Formula Drift until his build is 100% dialed in and then this 2015 RTR will debut into the series.

This 2015 Mustang RTR being unveiled will be used at demos for awesome events such as Hyperfest x Street Driven on May 2nd  at VIRginia International Raceway. We haven’t seen a complete 2015 schedule from Vaughn Gittin just yet but we are sure he will be trekking around the United States with the new setup plenty for you to catch a glimpse of it.

An Adventure out to HyperFest for US Drift Round 1


So after spending the week in Southern Florida for Formula Drift Round 3 I managed to spend just a few days at home back in Los Angeles before hopping on a flight to Washington DC. The last time I ventured out to Summit Point wasn’t what I would call a fun experience. I had trekked out in my G35 from Atlanta to watch Formula Drift use the Shenandoah Circuit for a course. Hyperfest opted to use that same track for a parking lot!


For qualifying I got invited up into the judges tower built at one end of Main Course. The track is technical, very very fast, and pretty much anywhere around the track you have an amazing view. Here is David Bellomo taking his 1JZ powered 240sx around the course in car where he qualified 9th so you can get a feel for this track.
