Deane and Więcek looking for a strong weekend in Texas
The Worthouse Drift Team’s duo is set to take part in the penultimate round of the Formula DRIFT Championship in Texas this weekend with James Deane defending a 57 point lead in the series and Piotr Więcek holding the top rookie spot.
The Irishman leads the way having taken four podiums from five events, including three victories. With just two rounds to go, a solid result this weekend would bring James a step closer to a sensational title in his first full season in Formula DRIFT.
His teammate, Poland’s Piotr Więcek is eleventh overall and a top rookie, coming back to the US after a season’s best result of fifth last time out in Seattle and also looking for another strong showing.
Round 7 of the Formula DRIFT Championship, the Showdown, will take place at infield of the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, just outside Dallas with the impressive NASCAR venue able to hold a crowd of just over 180 thousand fans.
Qualifying and main event will both be streamed live on www.FormulaD.com/live with the former on Friday from 12:45 AM to 3:15 PM and the latter on Saturday from 3:15 PM (Top 32) and 7:30 PM (Top 16).
