Vaughn Gittin Junior, the Formula Drifting World Champion, will entertain spectators by taking part in a series of four exclusive demonstration shows hosted by Ford on the circuit. Nicknamed ‘JR’, the 31-year-old American’s appearance coincides with the first event at the circuit since Ford was announced as the official vehicle of the Reem International Circuit. There will be numerous other activities for spectators to become involved with under the Actionha festivities banner.
