Serpent has announced the signing of Jörn Neumann to their factory off-road team. Serpent and Neumann agreed in a long term commitment which includes racing, testing and commercial work as sales promoter with Jörn racing Serpent’s full range of 1/8th and 1/10th nitro and electric off-road vehicles and he may even have a go in 1/12th scale racing to battle with racing buddy Hupo Hönigl who joined the Serpent factory team in January. Jörn will continue his racing career alongside longtime mechanic and mentor Gerd Strenge who will act as his mechanic and race engineer. The forthcoming Dirt Nitro Challenge will be Jörn’s first outing for his new sponsor and he has the following to say about the deal:
The full package made me think not long. A sales-support and promotional job and continue being a Pro driver is very good for the future. On top of that Gerd Strenge will be my mechanic and race engineer. This was an amazing opportunity which we had to take. The current Serpent car-line up is one of the most complete ones in the entire RC industry.
