“First I want to thank my recent car sponsor Team Tamiya/TRF for their support over the last 2 years. It was not the longest time together but we had a very productive time and achieved great results as a team.
Personally I want to thank Takayuki Kono and Kiyo Suzuki for being my mechanics in that time. Also I want to thank Team Orion and especially Oscar Jansen for their support in the last decade.
They have been supporting me with all electronics since I started RC and I can’t thank them enough for all their efforts! Now it is time for a new challenge and I am very happy to be part of Team Yokomo.
I will also use their line of electronics for my Onroad and Offroad cars throughout 2017 and 2018. I will start using the touring car and electronics from now on followed by the offroad cars from 1st May 2017
I can’t wait to work with the whole Team and my first big event will be the TITC in February. See you on track!”
