The 2015 year is kicking off a little slow so I dug up this video from the Wrecked Magazine Archives. This video takes us back to 2010 when James Deane arrived in America and given the keys to a “crappy and undriveable” S15 Silvia that had been campaigned with little success in previous Formula Drift years by other drivers. Legend has it, James Deane and his team flew to Amreica, had one test day and threw an alignment at it which resulted in him qualifying for Streets of Long Beach. In an emotionally charged run to the Final Four he wound up running his Irish compatriot Darren McNamara who helped him come to the States in the first place. He sent Darren McNamara packing after this wild wall smacking performance in the Great 8. He went on to battle Tanner Foust in the Final Four and lost but what a run he had that weekend. We have been big cheerleaders on his return to the States but nobody has coughed up a ride for him just yet while he wins everything in Europe over and over again. If you want to learn more about James Deane, I did a really fun interview with him when he was visiting the United States a while back which you can see here.
