Following the victory, James told Drifted, “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!”.
