Nexen Driver top Drifter 2008
James Deane, the Nexen-sponsored Prodrift driver has reached the top spot in the 2008 Prodrift European Series standings following a win at Mondello Park in Ireland in April. The first Prodrift meeting of the series, James’s win makes it a double success for sponsor Nexen as last year’s sponsored driver Eric O’Sullivan won the 2007 event in Ireland. Stapleton’s is supporting the Prodrift team by supplying tyres from the Nexen N3000 range and will continue to support the drivers throughout the programme as it progresses through Europe.
Stapleton’s trading director Steve Parker says the Prodrift series is an excellent way of demonstrating the performance of Nexen tyres. He says: “The first time Nexen was involved in drifting was in the 2007 Paris Tuning Show. They performed excellently and were well received by the drivers so it seemed an excellent opportunity to continue supporting the team by being the sole tyre supplier for James Deane. The tyres have already proved capable of meeting the demands placed on them during Prodrift racing and we wish James continued success in the remaining events.”
Nexen tyres are available in the UK exclusively through National tyre wholesaler Stapleton’s.
