Ellis Stafford Re-Signs with X Factory for 2 Years

Ellis Stafford: “I continue to be excited driving for X Factory. Back in 2006 when I first started with the X-Team, we had the X – 5 Squared and the original X – 6, and they were the fastest, most innovative cars around. I won the U.K. Championship in ’08 with the 6, but we didn’t stand on our laurels, we designed and raced the 6 Squared to the title in 09, making two years in a row. I tied for the Championship with the Squared in 2010, and I think it’s still the fastest 2WD buggy out there.

”It’s the X – 7 that excites me now. Again X Factory is leaping ahead with an innovative new design, and I’m so happy to be a part of the design team. I took my prototype X – 7 to a club race win the other weekend and it was very good indeed. 2012 and 2013 will be my most exciting years of R/C racing!”

X Factory president & chief engineer Paul Sinclair said, “Ellis has been a pivotal part of the design and testing effort on the X – 6 Squared and the new X – 7 4WD. For continuity and future work it was important to us that he sign for the next two years, and we are very happy that Ellis wants to stay with us.”
