Falken Motorsports’ driver James Deane wins the Swedish Drift GP

Defending European champion James Deane pilots his 700bhp Falken Tyre Nissan Silvia into top position at the second round of the Extreme Drift Allstars European Championship against Europe’s best drifters and a host of local Swedish talent.

This past weekend the Extreme Drift Allstars series landed in Eskilstuna, near Stockholm, Sweden, for the second round of the 2015 championship. Following his third place finish at round one in London last month, and running on Falken tyres, James was able to place his car with pinpoint accuracy, navigating the tight and technical course during Saturday’s qualifying event and securing top qualifying position going into Sunday’s head-to-head finale.

James’s route to the top would be anything but simple, first defeating Latvian Gatis Babris in the Top 16, before facing local Swedish driver Pelle Eriksson in the Top 8. In the Semi Finals, he would come up against local Swedish driver David Skogsby, who had also been on fine form all weekend. Ultimately, Skogsby was no match for James’s pace, aggression and grip, but it would be the final battle of the day that would really test the current champion.

James’s final opponent would be fellow Irishman Nigel Colfer. The two drivers are good friends and a close, clean head-to-head ensued, with just inches between the two powerful cars as they navigated the twisting course. James would have the edge after performing a near flawless chase run, securing him victory in the competition and propelling him to the top of the points table going into round three.

“I didn’t know what to expect going into Drift Allstars Sweden as it was a new track with a really strong driver lineup,” commented James. “My Falken Motorsports S14 ran flawlessly all weekend and the tyres gave me the confidence to really push the car hard, initially taking first place in qualifying and then going on to win the event!”

From here, James heads to Riga, Latvia for the third round of the 2015 championship on 31st July-1st August. The event is likely to be his toughest competition to date as drivers from all of Europe descend upon Bikernieki Circuit for the Latvian Drift GP.

Årets starkaste startfält i Europa till Drift Allstars 2015.

Med ett mycket starkt startfält ser vi fram emot vad vi tror blir årets största driftingtävling i Sverige. Det är tunga namn från hela Sverige som kommer kvala in till tävlingen under fredagen. Det kommer vara 10st förare från Sverige som går vidare. Klara i startfältet står tre av våra toppförare som fick poäng under Drift Allstars 2014 och har kunnat anmäla sig direkt till tävlingen. De tre som redan nu är klara är Fredrik Sjödin, Dennis Martinsson och Daniel Johansson.

Till detta grymma startfält kommer sen över 30 förare från hela världen att sluta upp. Kända namn och driftingförare som kommer ge allt på den Svenska banan på Gröndal. Banan är kallad ”lilla Japan” då den är lik en av de bästa banorna i världen!

Det är banans utformning och att anläggningen har publiken nära som gör att vi fått förtroendet att arrangera denna stortävling. Alltså bäddat för en upplevelse utöver det vanliga! Säger Peter Lagerlöf från Eskilstuna MotorSportArena.

Drift GP of Sweden avgörs i Eskilstuna 4-5 Juli 2015

Vi fick en pressrelease från Gröndal och nu är vi bara ännu mer peppade inför denna helg!

Ett kliv till.

Tidigare har vi arrangerat RM, SM och NEZ (North European Zone) och nu tar vi ett kliv till. Att få förfrågan att arrangera en tävling på denna nivå är något vi hoppats på om 2-3 år.

Att vi får möjligheten redan nu är för att vi har gjort bra arrangemang tidigare och att man hört mycket gott om banan.  Gröndal är ”liten” teknisk bana i jämförelse med en fullstor racerbana där man annars ofta tävlar.

Men den är byggd för drifting och blir samtidigt en kompaktare arena där publiken kommer närmare.

Drift Allstars European Series är en serie på högsta nivån i Europa.  Med deltagare från ca 20 länder är den att jämföra med ett europeiskt  mästerskap.

 

Folkfest att vänta !

Den stora skillnaden för oss är inte tävlingen i sig utan det kommer hända så mycket saker kring arrangemanget.

Nu skall vi göra på vårt sätt och sätta Eskilstuna på motorsportkartan ännu en gång.

Här är arbetet redan i full gång, bara det faktum att det bara är 3,5 mil till Västerås som har Big Power Meet Torsdag till Lördag gör ju att det finns både utmaningar och möjligheter..

Så här presenteras deltvlingen på seriens hemsida.
Round 3- Eskiltuna Motorsport Arena- July 4-5th – Drift GP of Sweden

Drift Allstars has a huge following in Scandinavia and will run at one of the driver’s favourite tracks the custom drift layout at the Grondal Circuit, Eskiltuna, Sweden. Falling just a week before Gatebil Rudskogen, this Round should see one of the biggest line-ups of the season with drivers coming from all over the world.

 

Att vi kommer få se grym drifting på högsta nivå kan vi lova !
