Reigning 1/8 on-road world champion Simon Kurzbuch continues with Team Shepherd. Having had an amazing 2015 season by winning the 1/8 world championship, the Swiss national championship and taking the 2nd place at the 1/10 Euros the Swiss ace is confident to achieve more great results together with the German manufacturer. Simon has signed a contract for another two years and plans to attend the complete Swiss national championship, all major 1/8th scale races including the 1/10th World Championship in Gubbio.
“First of all I would like the thank Patrick, Armin and Alex from Team Shepherd as well as the Swiss Shepherd distributor Picco Bello Modellbau for an excellent cooperation in the last 7 years. Without their support the recent results including the worlds title wouldn’t have been possible. Now I’m looking forward to being a part of the Shepherd family for at least another 2 years as the teamwork and the collegiality at the track are second to nothing. See you at the race track.”
