This year we wanted to bring you photo coverage of Round 2: Road to the Championship in Atlanta and though there was some inclement weather rolling through the area, we got plenty of shots thanks to Kevin Choi to show you how it all went down.
“Vaughn Gittin fought his way to the top of the podium through tough competition to take his first victory of the season and move into second place in the point standings. Gittin matched up against Fredric Aasbo in the Hankook Tire Scion Racing tC in the finals. After a tightly fought battle Gittin was awarded the win. Chris Forsberg in the Hankook Tire Nissan 370Z rounded out the podium in third place to remain in first place in the championship.” – Formula Drift Official Statement
“Tonight my team and I were truly one. We communicated and worked super hard,” said Vaughn Gittin. “These were some of the most hard fought battles that I remember ever having and it says a lot about our sport, where we are going and what we are doing. And I’m just super proud to be standing on the top step.”
The championship continues with Round 3 [May 30-31] at Homestead-Miami Speedway. For more information visit:www.formuladrift.com and find Formula DRIFT on Instagram @formulad, Facebook www.facebook.com/formuladrift and Twitter @FormulaD.
