Gear Ratio – WTF to the Masses / Doug Van Den Brink
Doug Van Den Brink is doing it his way in the world of motorsports…and there’s nothing wrong with that. From sliding his D’Vanz Motorsports Ford Mustang in the professional Formula Drift events to working with top car manufactures as a Corporate Spokesperson and a Safety-Driver Instructor, too living in the heart NASCAR Country (Cornelius, NC)…DVB has done it all.
RedLineTechnik.com had the chance to spend some time last year with Doug and if you ever have the opportunity to see him compete at a Formula Drift event, do it! … you will be impressed. His dedication to be the best at his driving craft is impressive. From the car enthusiasts side, you will be amazed what a Ford Mustang can do at 90 mph sliding sideways.
