A few words from Adrien: “I am really proud to join the HB / HPI Racing team and would like to thank Tatsuro Watanabe and Hiroyuki Kasuya for the great welcome I received. Hot bodies is one of the few world champion brands to have a winning car in any class it attends and this is a great demonstration of their passion and design experience. I am happy to join this team to help in developing their recent nitro on road racing car and make it successful on highest level . Finally I would like to thanks Kenny and KM Racing for their support in 2013 .
