Vaughn Gittin Jr. Reveals 2013 Monster Energy Mustang RTR

The 2013 Formula Drift season is set to kick off April 12-13 on the Streets of Long Beach and Team Nitto Tire is locked and loaded in their quest to win the series championship. Headlining the charge will be Nitto’s largest offseason acquisition to date, former series champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. Piloting the Monster Energy / Nitto Tire Ford Racing RTR Mustang, Gittin is known for his aggressive, foot to the floor, big smoke driving style and will be gunning for his second career FD championship. Vaughn will also head to China to compete in the World Drift Series, as well as participate in select competition and demonstration events in Europe. Entering his third season for Nitto Tire is Matt Powers, driver of the Nitto Tire Nissan S14. During the offseason, Powers traveled abroad and took home the prestigious 2012 Red Bull Drifters championship. Not to be forgotten is Chelsea DeNofa, driver of the BC Racing / Nitto Tire Mazda RX8 R3, who will be entering his first full season with Nitto Tire after making the switch midway through the 2012 season. All three teams will be running the NT05, a street tire that provides precise handling and performance. Be sure to check out the official unveil of Vaughn Gittin’s 2013 vehicle below!

DMCC Round 6 2010: Bowmanville, ON

In what was a tight race at the beginning of the season became quickly apparent who would occupy what slot on the podium. Held at the internationally renowned Mosport International Raceway, the track owners have attracted the Drift Mania series by paving the infield of their oval, which is next to the famous Grand Prix track. Although the podium eluded Matt Waldin and Pat Cyr, these two were far enough ahead to cement first and second respectively! Congrats to the DMCC and its Champions for an exciting and successful 2010 season!!!…
