PRO Class Driver Vaughn Gittin Wins at Drift Atlanta
Round 2 of the Formula DRIFT season has concluded. Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta hosted the event this weekend and Saturday the PRO class took the stage after the PROSPEC concluded on Friday. You can read about the PROSPEC results here: PROSPEC Results.
The PRO class featured 32 drivers. Championship leader Matt Field (USA) was eliminated from the round 8 by Monster Energy Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5-FD drive Vaughn Gittin Jr. Field continued to lead the 2023 FD PRO Championship by a healthy 40-point margin. Gittin Jr is only competing in four rounds this season, so he won’t mount a title offensive but could certainly shake up the standings.
