After what must have been the toughest and closest fought drift event I've ever witnessed on these shores, James Deane eventually emerged victorious in the Low Brain Drifter's PS13. The event which saw some serious upsets during qualifying came down to a final between James and our own D-Mac. However, upon initiation Darren cut the first turn slightly, damaging the sump of the Need for Speed '86. Shortly after the escaping engine oil erupted in a lick of flame before extinguishing itself and with it the life of the 13B engine. That's not to say James had it easy – to meet Darren in the final he successfully defeated Driftworks' Phil Morrisson with only two forward gears working.
Be sure to check back for detailed event reports and both Darren & Fredric's views of how the event went down in their own driver blogs along with who took home the overall 2011 Prodrift Series title.
