Darren is the first to admit that competing in the US has proven to be a huge challenge although he has plenty of skill and optimism, as well as some significant experience behind the wheel, better understanding of the tracks he's drifting on and the drivers he's competing against. For 2009, Darren is driving the Falken Tire / Sears Auto Center Azenis RT615 equipped V8 Saturn Sky and expects his results to be much improved as he strives for his first major U.S. title win. All told, this is a young man who's going places in the world of drifting.
