It’s been confirmed that popular American drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr will feature at next year’s Leadfoot Festival at Hahei. The three-time World Drift Series champion and former Formula D champion will reportedly campaign a newly built RTR Ford Mustang, similar to the two cars that his team runs in Formula D.
Most recently Gittin was one of the stars of the U.K’s Goodwood Festival of Speed “I talked to [Gittin Jr] maybe two or three years ago, and each year since he’s said it was on his bucket list,” said Leadfoot Festival organiser and owner of Leadfoot Ranch Rod Millen. “I’m really thrilled! He’s got a great presence around the world, of course including the US, as a three-time world champion. So, we’re really excited to have him join us.”
Both Vaughn & fellow Nitto driver Mad Mike will join YHI at Leadfoot 2018, exhibiting Nitto for the third year running. Tickets and more details can be found at www.leadfootfestival.com. Source: Driven.co.nz, Leadfootfestival.com
