Serpent have released a teaser image showing a partly covered Mike Truhe, confirming many earlier rumours that the former TLR driver had joined the Serpent team. Despite the trademark goatie and body shell giving it away we still have to wait for official confirmation which we are sure will come in the next days. The addition of Mike to their team is a positive development and with their new mid motor 2wd buggy recently added to their their very thorough line-up, having a major name on the team to work alongside Billy Easton was the next logical step to ramp up their offroad program in the US. Update: Mike Truhe made a statement on his FB page confirming the move:
I am now very excited to be working with Serpent racing and Desoto racing to grow and expand the Serpent brand and all that Desoto racing has to offer. I truly feel that this is a great fit for me and that the products available are some of the best on the market. I am very excited to also be apart of this growing brand and bring the consumers the best and freshest ideas of cars and parts that are available.
