Ford Racing recently released a video of Vaughn Gittin Jr. driving around the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant where they currently build the Ford Mustang. This is on the heels of Ford’s recent announcement to sponsor the Formula Drift Series.
Vaughn Gittin Jr. drifts the Ford Flat Rock assembly plant all the way from the assembly line to the test track, onto the shipping rail car. If you are wondering who Vaughn Gittin Jr is or what Formula Drift is all about, here is some quick info.
Formula Drift is recognized as North American’s professional drifting championship series and Vaughn Gittin Jr. is a self-taught professional drifter who races in the Formula Drift series with a Monster Energy Falken Tire Ford Mustang RTR and is currently ranked second in the series.
Don’t try compare the video to one of Ken Blocks DC Shoes videos, cause it’s not as technical but it’s entertaining.
What’s even more interesting is that Ford actually allowed Vaughn Gittin Jr. to drive like this. It is generally not common practice for any vehicle manufacturer to allow this kind of behaviour considering the strict safety guidelines they operate under.
