Deane takes third Formula DRIFT victory of the season

Worthouse Drift Team’s James Deane took his third victory of the season and extended his Championship lead after a spectacular performance during round six in Monroe, Washington. His Polish teammate and series rookie Piotr Więcek scored his best result in the series by taking fifth position.

Deane started the weekend by qualifying first for the second consecutive time, earning a Bye Run for Top 32 and topping Dan Burkett in Top 16. The Irishman then clashed with friend and teammate Piotr Więcek, who himself took a solid ninth in the qualifying before beating Dean Keartney and Alex Heilbrunn in his first two duels.

The Worthouse Drift Team’s duo put in an amazing show before Deane went on to battle Dai Yoshihara in Top 4 and Fredric Aasbo in the final, coming out on top twice in fierce battles which both included On More Time runs.

Deane’s victory in Monroe is his third of the season after Long Beach and Atlanta, extending his Championship lead over Aasbo to 57 points with just two rounds to go. Next up in Texas Motor Speedway on the 8-9 of September.

Deane takes third Formula DRIFT podium of the season in Canada

Worthouse Drift Team’s James Deane continues to lead the Formula DRIFT Pro Championship after taking third position and his third podium of the season during the Saturday’s Round 5 at the Autodrome St-Eustache in Canada. His Polish teammate Piotr Więcek was impressive in qualifying but an unlucky practice crash just minutes before Top 32 forced him out of the main event.

Deane was on fire in Canada, taking first in qualifying and earning a Bye Run for the Top 32 before topping Dai Yoshihara and Robbie Nishida in Top 16 and Great 8 respectively. The Irishman then clashed with last year’s Canada winner Fredric Aasbo. The Worthouse Drift Team’s star put in an impressive lead run and an equally spectacular chase run before a small mistake in the final corner handed the victory to the Norwegian Hammer. Aasbo eventually won the entire event, taking a record breaking tenth Formula DRIFT victory and moving to second overall, 34 points behind Deane. James continues to lead the Championship with three podiums, including two wins, from five events, while Falken leads the Tire Championship standings with a 50 points advantage.

Formula DRIFT 2017 Season – ORACLE Lighting, Achilles Radial Dodge Viper

Yesterday was a good day.. Little Shake down test for 001 at Willow Springs after its refresh. Now installing the new wrap will commence for the weekend.. #teamkarnage #dk43 #policecar #1000hpclub
Finial prep before the season opening media day tomorrow at Long Beach.. @360wraps are in town wrapping our cars and rigs right now.. Big shout out to Avery Dennison for the support on this project. Always a pleasure working with global brands. #teamkarnage #dk43 #averydennison #wraps #dk43 #fdlb
Found this picture in my phone looking for something. This pic taken from a few weeks back when re-assembly started on the 002 chassis..it’s crazy how far drift builds have come and the extent we tear these cars down. The Bridges Racing crew representing some of the world leading brands we work hand in hand with.. #barebones of a Viper chassis. #teamkarnage #dk43 #drifting #racecar #raceshop #viper #turbos #hpsperformance
Got our @treadstoneperformance intercooler fitted into the engine bay and piped up to the @turbobygarrett #gtx4088r turbos. The Treadstone stuff Is really nice quality and easy to work with and weld. #treadstoneperformance #turbolife #turbosmart #turbobygarrett #hpsperformance #millerwelds
The interior of the #Viper is coming together nicely. The @sikkymanufacturing e-brake is a really nice piece. #Sparco #sikky #hpsperformance #aem #treadstoneperformance #radiumengineering #turbolife #turbobygarrett #turbosmart #igniteracingfuel #achilles #360wraps #specclutch #mooresport #rsiracing #aprperformancecarbon
We got a shipment of @hpsperformance hoses and piping and @dangerdan3 is doing a pretty clean job of snaking it past the @radiumengineering #fcst #oraclelights #radiumengineering #turbolife #turbobygarrett #specclutch #turbosmart #achillestires #achillesradial #igniteracingfuel #hpsperformance
Just about have my new office set up for 2017… I’m super happy with how this turned out and love the clean carbon fiber look. It’s the first car in 8years I’ve sat in that the driving position is 100% how I want it.. now I’m getting excited to drive it. #teamkarnage #dk43 #fd2017 #viper #racecar #oraclelights
Really happy to be working with the guys at @mooresport. It’s pretty neat how they took all our ideas and previous designs, plugged them into a computer and fixed all the flaws and produced amazing pieces like these. Easier to drive, less failures and quicker to replace in the event of any #Karnage. #cnc #fabrication #welding #overnightpartsfromcanada #prettyneat #viper
