    Nitro Summer Nationals Caster Oval Debut

    “Caster Racing USA is proud to announce their debut to latemodel racing at the Nitro Summer Nationals. Caster team driver Lloyd Smith Took 3rd place in the a main with the first time ever on a track in an event. During qualifiers, Lloyd turned over the controls to his personal friend and NEWEST Caster team driver Rodger Moore. Rodger took the Caster for a test spin and ended up TQing the night with it never driving a Caster before. Mike Mazza commented “We knew that the Caster all had a great reputation for handling on the off road motocross style tracks. However, we were concerned that we were not very familiar with late model oval. At that point we made the decision to enlist the help of Team Hoagie Designs owner Derrick Hochgesang and late model driver Lloyd Smith. I knew that these guys were much more versed in what we were trying to achieve and when we got together with a plan, I knew they would be successful being in charge of the project. As a result, prototyping has been completed, parts are being copied and modified overseas, and we should have a late model for the general public very soon.” Congratulations to Lloyd for taking a car out of the box on a Thursday and being on the podium a few days later.” Find Out More… [Source - casterracingusa.com]

With all the best European drivers (with a very strong Italian presence) the competition level was like at the World Championship, with all the recent European Champions and two World Champions making the race very challenging.” Read More… [Source - teamxray.com]

    Sabrina EC 110 Gubbio Report

    Serpent reports – “We started our trip to Gubbio on Sunday at 1 p.m. Jirka Hassler from Serpent Europe, who was kind enough to be my mechanic for the EC, picked me up and we began the 700 km trip. We finally arrived early Sunday morning and a lot of work was waiting for us already. Italian Serpent driver Giordano Agostinelli had not received his 733 yet and in a team effort, involving the Baumgarten and Gruber families, we managed to get his car build that day. I was really lucky, that I had received my kit earlier and my Dad was able to build it in the week before the race. On Monday morning at 9 a.m. controlled practice began and went on until Wednesday. Each racer had 5 runs of 10 minutes each per day. This wasn’t that much time, so the team had to plan very carefully who would be testing what in his practice runs.” Read More… [Source - serpent.com]

    KFactory Racing G4RS Front Shock Tower2-vert

    “Just like our Carbon Shock Tower series, this shock towers has reduce the weight but also not sacrifice the strength that came from the carbon fiber. Not just caring about the lightweight, we also make it thicker than previous products this time, so it is absolutely solid as rock. Sometimes the shock absorbers need to be changed into different angle in order to adapting the different racing fields. Therefore, we developed more optional holes on the shock towers for variety of demand so racers can choose the proper angle that mach the field.” [Source - kfactoryracing.com]
