James Deane took his fourth victory of the season and second on the bounce to move a step closer to the sensational Formula DRIFT Championship title after Saturday’s main event at the Texas Motor Speedway. His Worthouse Drift Team’s teammate, Polish rookie Piotr Więcek, took a solid 11th in the main event after a season’s best qualifying the day before.

Deane earned a Bye Run straight to the Top 16 after winning the qualifying session for a third consecutive time with a 97-point score on his second run. The Irishman then battled with Alec Hohnadell, Chelsea DeNofa and Fredric Aasbo before topping Chris Forsberg in a spectacular final. The multiple European Champion leads the standings by a massive 96 points with just 107 up for grabs during the big final in Irwindale.

His teammate Piotr Więcek started the weekend in Texas by taking his season’s best qualifying result with a sixth position and a 92-point score before beating Dan Burkett in Top 32. The very close Top 16 battle with Dai Yoshihara eventually saw the Japanese, a former Formula DRIFT Champion, progressing to the Great 8. Więcek however managed to seal a top rookie spot in the overall standings and reduced his points gap to the Top 10.

The last round of the Formula DRIFT Championship will take place in Irwindale, California, on the 13-14th of October, but before that Deane and Więcek will compete in the last round of the Irish Championship to be held in a fortnight.
