Team Associated Announces 1:8 Off Road Race Team
Costa Mesa, CA, Jan. 1, 2007 – As the dawn of a New Year breaks, Team Associated has drawn on the knowledge of its unprecedented 20 IFMAR World Championships to create the highly anticipated Factory Team RC8. This is Associatedâ€™s first venture into 1:8 scale off road racing and we are creating a formidable team of A-list drivers to launch the campaign.
Set to lead the worldwide racing campaign for the RC8 are current ROAR 1:8 Scale National Champion Ryan Maifield, 2-time IFMAR World Champion Ryan Cavalieri, and multi-time U.S. National Champion Richard Saxton. In addition, ROAR A main finalist JR Mitch and Kyle Skidmore will focus on regional events and select National contests in the United States.
Joining these drivers, with the support of CML Distributing, are current IFMAR World Champion Neil Cragg and “Mr. Everything” Craig Drescher. Also representing Team Associated and the RC8, with the assistance of Thunder Tiger Europe, are EFRA European Champions Peter Pinisch and JÃ¶rn Neumann.
