Formula Drift Atlanta is the longest running Formula Drift track in the nation and every year the action there just gets crazier and crazier. This year was no exception with tons of hardcore runs and door to door action coupled with the rain holding up just long enough for us to get through the event (of course with a minor drizzle here and there) – the event could not have gone better. The finals of this event went down almost identical to last years finals with Frederic Aasbo squaring off with Vaughn Gittin Jr. I have a ton more pictures to post and I will soon – for now I just want to put out the bare bones of the coverage!

A little early off-road action due to a light drizzle – but after this we made it through the next 4 hours without a drop of water.

Top 16 went down and everything went smooth – Until Vaughn Gitten Jr. & Darren McNamara and things started to get crazy!

First run – there might have been a false start – so they went two more times; second run – they both spun but then jumped right back on track and kept going.

Crazy battle of the Mustangs!

aasbo

Frederic Aasbo came through and made it into the finals.

Chris Forsberg put himself into 3rd place -> leaving Frederic Aasbo to battle it out with Vaughn Gittin Jr; which if you remember last years fiasco, this was the rematch!

Two very hard-fought runs but VGJR got out in front and Aasbo just couldn’t hang. So with that Vaughn Gittin won this round, but his running celebration was to be one-up’d by a lone-streaker.
