Shepherd Micro Racing announce that Worlds finalist and multiple European and German champion Dirk Wischnweski joins their factory racing team for 2014. Living close to the Shepherd company he will be heavily involved in the development of the Velox V10 Pro sharing his huge knowledge with the team. In the upcoming season Dirk will attend the ENS series, the EC in Valencia and the Worlds in Bangkok as well as some regional races giving track side assistance to fellow Shepherd racers. Dirk had the following to say:
First of all I would like to thank Xray for their support over the last few years but now it’s time for a new challenge. I’m really happy to work together with Patrick and the rest of the Shepherd crew for the future. It was not so easy for me to make a decision for the 2014 season but when I think about the small distance to the company and the great improvements Shepherd made on the Velox V10 last year I’m really optimistic and looking forward to attending the upcoming races.
