In his Falken sponsored Mazda RX-7, the 21-year-old Irishman saw off rivals Gavin Lenihan and Shane O’Sullivan from Team Japspeed, who took 2ndand 3rd place respectively.

Reflecting on his podium finish, Deane says; “We had a great start to the drift season for 2013; I had some hard fought battles but managed to come out on top in the end and the car got massive attention all weekend with its new look.”

Supported by Falken Tyres Europe, James Deane’s SR20-powered Mazda RX-7 is a new build for 2013 and features full Falken livery. Deane’s RX-7 is using Falken’s AZENIS FK453 UHP tyres along with an upgraded turbo and aero package, combining to create his most powerful RX-7 build to date.

Since competing at the age of 15, Deane has won five professional drift championships and secured over 40 podium finishes in events such as Prodrift, Formula Drift and the Red Bull World Drifting Championship. Following his latest successes, Deane will be racing in the second round of the Irish Drifting Championship in Punchestown; “Bring it on!” he concludes.
