Shepherd announce that they recently signed RC-talent Alessandro Balboni for the 2014 season. The young Italian driver already had his first race at the US World Nitro Cup in Kissimmee at the end of 2013 showing a very competitive pace clocking some of the fastest laps of the race. Alessandro had the following to say:
Thanks to Team Shepherd and especially Giovanni Bianchi from B-Racing for this great opportunity. I’m really happy to join the strong Team Shepherd for the 2014 season and I’m looking forward to attending the upcoming races with my Velox V10 Pro which has exceeded my expectations already.
