James Deane makes sideways return to the Goodwood Hillclimb

James Deane will drift his Falken-liveried Mazda RX-7 up the Goodwood Hillclimb at the Festival of Speed

Falken Tyre drift driver James Deane will return to the Goodwood Festival of Speed on 12-15 July 2018. He will drift up the iconic Goodwood Hillclimb in his Falken-liveried Mazda RX-7.

The Irish drift star is currently leading the 2018 Formula Drift Pro Championship in USA after claiming the championship crown in his maiden season last year. He has been selected to demonstrate the top-rate car control skills that have brought him this success in front of more than 300,000 fans that will attend the highly-prestigious, world-famous event at Goodwood, West Sussex.

“I’m honoured to have been invited back to Goodwood,” said Deane. “It’s an iconic event with such an amazing crowd of enthusiastic visitors. I’ll again be heading up the Goodwood Hillclimb but instead of trying to set a time, I’ll be aiming to go sideways for as much as possible! It’s one of the biggest motoring events in the world and is such an exciting platform to showcase drifting.”
