Deane maybe won 3 years in a row but Forest Wang won 3 championships that night.
Christopher Gutierrez
Judges spammed the OMT until Deane gave them a decent chase run... how is that fair to Wang? Was the “3peat” media and merch boom worth the integrity? Not to take anything from Deane as a phenomenal driver, but he wasn’t having the best day and sometimes that happens... why give him a consolation prize this massive? Maybe I’m just not fully understanding the judges reasoning behind it. I don’t think any of us even fully understand how these runs are supposed to be judged. Seems like some runs don’t add up to their scores sometimes, but again, I don’t understand all the rulings and I feel they should be made a bit clearer at least to avoid the booing we saw at the end of their run.

Chelsea goofed and should have taken the loss. Sure, dai had very little angle in turn one but he didn't "straighten out". He tapped the wall because he was chasing denofas line. Denofas line took him to the wall and dai followed with.

Team Worthouse should run higher tire pressure and more negative camber so they can match the speed of everyone else. Its obvious they are too gripped up to run a good follow.

I posted it to FD instagram page and I'll say it here. There was no way possible for the judges to hear the WHOLE crowd BOOING because they were so far up James Dean's A**
vaughn vs essa.......vaughn makes a not good lead run but this overtakes his good chase so essa win FD logic deane vs wang....deane drives straight 2 omt and wins congrats of the judges (btw vaughn gittin jr and james deane are my 2 favourites drifters)

Amazing driving from Gushi. The championship is his to take next year. And yeah we all know Deane did not deserve the 3 peat, Wang beat him...redemption for Wang next year. The judges should be ashamed of themselves. Can't wait to see Gushi run in 2020.

Just gonna say FD's judges have almost lost all credibility with me and from the looks of it most of there fans after this event. Please shake up the judging. FD needs to go take in some drift masters events and take some notes.

I love FD but the Deane call was garbage. So much so that I refuse to watch the rest of the event. I would have walked out after Deane won. I'm a huge Odi Bakchis and Matt Field fan and the judges have been so harsh to them all weekend yet they practically handed Deane the win. All season Odi was outdriving his competitors, namely Aasbo, yet he got shafted with nearly every judging call.
MoZe LF 4 months ago
Same here, frenemies the best. Doesn't matter how they go always one judge says OMT. Pioter spins and get OMT, looks like judges support workhouse team...

TuBBster Cole

For those that don't get the james vs wang battle. In FD USA they seem to favour proximity over line; it's just their judging preference. If you watch DMEC you would see they favour line over proximity. With that in mind on the first battle james did a perfect lead run and forest initiated low on the bank (mid line) and kept that poor line all the way through to the transition clip. He was also only able to get proximity on the last corner (with a poorer line). With the roles reveresed, james pulled less and angle and a similar line (mid line) on the bank but a fuckton more proximity. All this means is that lead for lead they both did well and chase for chase they both made two big errors. That is sufficient grounds for a OMT. That remained to be true for the other 2 OMT til James got the win.

​@TuBBster Cole you're right. I also see wang won that battle until I rewatch the clip multiple times. both are my favorite drivers and I want to make sure why they go OMT. I also like when you said about judging preference. you are right, we need to understand the rule when watching a drifting competition. DMEC, FD, D1, RDS, DGX has their own judging rules.
TuBBster Cole
TuBBster Cole 4 months ago
@pack er Definitely. All the reasons for the OMT were technical but to the naked eye I can see why people assumed forest won and why they believed he was robbed. Had to rewatch the clip a couple times before I understood it myself

TuBBster Cole great evaluation man. I want to add something from your explanation. forest always leave the outer zone 1 early and skip the last box(judges mention it at 1st OMT). and then makes chase car can't go anywhere. in my opinion. Deane has a better lead.
valley villain
valley villain 4 months ago
Favors proximity over angle, line, and fluidity, Deane was lower had less angle and was surging back and forth all the way around the bank. That's sloppy and wang did it better even if he did have to play catch up a bit. There should be no way the judges could spin that to make deane the winner. He had 3 battles to clean it up and did the same thing 3 times. He never adjusted he never matched the line and he had almost no angle. People have been complaining about the judges for a long time and FD wonders why. This is the perfect example.

i am a BIG fan of Deane, but that was forrest wang's all the way, everybody knows it. And you're gonna have some issues with a lot of your fans if those judges aren't removed or seriously consider what's drifting and what's not, angle before perimeter, kind of the key essence of drift. big fail and you lost a lot of fans on this shitshow. EDIT: i didn't even read all the comments before i wrote this, i guess im right. go watch Driftmasters instead.

I really hope people at formula Drift look back at this and realize the sport is tainted. Lead runs are important but if you cant chase some one you should loose. Everyone even the fans in the stands agree yall fucked up realy bad. No one will ever take this awsome sport seriously. Thanks for wasting my time FD

WTF? With that decision the whole competition loses legitimacy. And the commentators are as bad as the judges trying to justify that crap. The crowd wasn't booing because Wang is a crowd favourite, the crowd is booing because Wang deserved to win and Dean did not and it was obvious to everyone. I wanted James to win going into it but he did not deserve that win.

Wtf. Deane vs Wang should have been over after round 1. Deanes chase honestly sucked. We all know he can do better but thats not how the competition works. So he got another chance then fucked up in the same way? Judges are on the Deane hype train and its fucking with the sport
Георги Панайотов
Those jugdes are f joke, what the heck is that???? How many money worthouse did gave to them??? Battles Wicek-Aasbo and Deane-Wang, are f corrupted!!! James Deane champion my arse!!! Not for firs time judges gave to him free victories!!! FD is f joke these days, I'm fan of this sport, but that is annoying to watch!

@Formula DRIFT forget about it the judges did well... drift criteria shows line before angle, and dean won in line and proximity... lost in angle... so is a 50-50 call... omt was perfect after all... we just saw more drifting xd (and even if wang won what was the difference? jeez stop the hate people...)

S1bulka If they are booing, I don’t know if they disagree with the call, hate Deane or love Forrest or all three. All could be true at the same time. It doesn’t tell you whether or not the call was consistent with criteria or not, it just shows you a negative reaction happened. I happen to think there’s a good argument for Forrest in battle 1, but people can disagree about that. That’s fine.

Maan you guys need to learn how to judge, It isn't Deane's fault that he had to chase almost in a straight line at the bank, Wang's car was waaaay to slow, there was no other option for him. I think what the judges decided was on point. As a judge you can't let the hype influence you decision, wang had the chance to take down the defending and potential champion and that's really exciting, I know, but he didn't do what he had to, wich is make a car/setup that was fast enough to be chased, it was totaly his fault. Don't let the excitment guide you, as much as I am a fan of certain drivers (wang included) I have to accept their mistakes, that's part of the sport guys.

@D Young totally agree with you, just look at the first half of the chase, almost no angle at all. His lead run maybe slightly better but the chase is too far off imo.
D Young
D Young 4 months ago
@Folarin Bankole Did you even watch the first run? Jerrod even pointed it out? Should have never been a OMT. Dean's first follow run was pretty much garbage, don't say anything about proximity. Its easy to run up on someones door when your not carrying any angle. Just more questionable calls from FD judges.
