Falken Motorsports’ driver James Deane won the Extreme Drift Allstars Lithuanian Drift GP and with it, secured his place as the 2014 Extreme Drift Allstars champion.

Following a gruelling season touring Europe and battling it out against the best drivers in the world, Irish Falken Motorsport driver James Deane has taken the title in his Nissan S14 after a dramatic last minute clincher in Lithuania. Deane went into the final event of the 2014 season needing to finish high in order to secure the silverware.

After pushing hard to take second place in qualifying, Deane battled through a tough field of competitors and consistently wowed the fans and the judges with his precise, yet aggressive style of driving. In the final Deane put pressure on Poland’s Piotr Więcek to take the crown in style in front of a capacity crowd on the streets of Lithuania.

Following the victory, Deane commented, “We pushed so hard this weekend and all throughout the year. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever driven as hard as I did today. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of my sponsors, especially Falken Tyre Europe and Falken Motorsport. It’s crazy; the level of competition in Europe is insane and really pushed me to my limits. But, we did it, and I’m on top of the world right now!”

The 2014 title is the second title Extreme Drift Allstars title for Deane and follows his Irish Drift Championship win in 2013.
