Owen Developments Sponsored Drivers take Wins and the Championship lead in three different series!

21 July 2014

Owen boosted drivers were all over Europe having one of the most successful weekends of the season for us.  Representing Owen Dev at Drift Allstars in Sweden were reigning IDC Champion James Deane and rising star Jack Shanahan, Queen of Europe Champion Danielle Murphy was in Romania to try to extend her Championship lead and all our British Drift Championship drivers were at Teesside Autodrome for Round 3.


  Drift Allstars - Sweden

Mantorp Park was playing host to Drift Allstars, which means that Jack Shanahan (GTX4088R) and James Deane (ODGTX3582R-M) were on hand to slay some tyres! Deane is looking for his first Drift Allstars win of the season after pulling out of the final last round due to mechanical issues. Qualifying went its usual way for Deane as he took first place, with Shanahan taking fifth, a great start!

Onto the battles and both Shanahan and Deane make progress through until the semi-finals where they were drawn against each other! Obviously only one could go through and on this occasion Deane continued to his second successive Drift Allstars final. Shanahan’s day wasn’t over yet though; he still had to battle Alexander Grandlund to see who would take the final podium spot. More silverware for Shanahan this time!

James Deane’s opponent for the final was second place qualifier Fredrik Øksnevad. This time, Deane was too much and he took the win and Championship lead convincingly. Excellent work guys, next time; Latvia!

  Queen of Europe - Romania

Meanwhile, Danielle Murphy (ODGT3073HTA-M) was continuing her Queen of Europe title defence; she got off to the best possible start at the opening round in Hungary taking the win and would want to carry the momentum on into Romania. Qualifying second she worked her way through the battles to the final against Ramona Rusu who didn’t have enough to hold back Murphy on the day. Danielle takes the win and extends her Championship lead! Will she be a back-to-back Champion by the end of the season?

  British Drift Championship - Teesside

The BDC was at the driver’s favourite circuit for Round 3; Teesside Autodrome. Over that last few years this track has brought the very best out of the drivers and it was sure to be a spectacle especially with thunderstorms all weekend!

Qualifying went well, especially in Super-Pro where for the second time this season Steve Biagioni (ODGT3076HTA-M) was the first place qualifier, ahead of another eight Owen boosted drivers in the Top 16 qualifiers! In Pro and Semi-Pro Luke Woodham (ODGT2868HTA-M) and Kirsty Widdrington (ODGT2868HTA-M) qualified second and third respectively, good effort!

The battles would go even better for us than qualifying, culminating in an incredible 1-2-3 sweep of the podium in Super-Pro!  Matt Carter (ODGT3586HTA-M) would take third, with Biagioni just missing out on the win to Shane O’Sullivan (ODGTX3076R-M).

This result helps consolidate the stranglehold our sponsored drivers have on the Super-Pro Championship table with Owen’s drivers occupying the top five places; O’Sullivan a healthy 27 points ahead of the best non-Owens driver.
