Serpent is celebrating their 35th anniversary, first established in 1980. Founded in Heemstede, near the city and track which hosted the 1989 IFMAR 1/8 Onroad World Championship, and still serves as Serpent’s test grounds. The Serpent brand started its success in 1/8 onroad racing, and now covers nearly every onroad and offroad class of racing there is to cover with a lineup of 30+ vehicles, and more to come.
Serpent has played a large role in developing new classes, such as the 1/10 235mm class and 200mm GP class (both of which Serpent has won IFMAR World Championship titles in). 2016 will see another four World Championship events in which Serpent drivers will compete.
Later this month Serpent will introduce the Serpent Viper 977 35th Anniversary Limited Edition, as part of the celebrations. Only 350 special units will be made, and number 001 will be auctioned on ebay for charity, for the organization “Right-to-Play” . The 001 kit will also have an exclusive 35th Anniversary tool-set, laser-engraved with 35th Anniversary logo. More details on this Limited Edition and Aunction to follow.
“We would like to thank our loyal Serpent fans, drivers, dealers, distributors, staff , RC press and suppliers for the past 35 years, and we look forward to the years to come. We have many exciting new projects in the works!”
