Time to Drift in a Mustang With Vaughn Gittin Jr.

"Drifting is essentially a dog fight." - Vaughn Gittin Jr.

Want to know what it’s like to be behind the wheel of a drifting competition spec Ford Mustang? Of course you do, and today Mustang RTR creator Vaughn Gittin Jr. is giving online viewers the chance.
