Schumacher have announced the signing of the Van Helmond brothers to their international race team. The two will be competing in 1/10th electric off road races throughout Europe, be it club, National or International level including the EOS series. Wesley aged 18 and Dominique aged 15 have shown great potential, they have both already achieved many race victories. Wesley is currently the 2WD National Champion of the combined Dutch/Belgium championship and has done so for the last five years. Dominique has been the 4WD champion in this series three times also. Competing in both 2WD and 4WD off-road and using many Schumacher products, the pair of them are very excited to have joined. Their father Joey had the following to say:
We as a family attend many races, this being most weekends. It is a nice way to spend time together and we have a nice time with friends in our pits. We are very excited to have joined Schumacher Racing and thank both Muz and Robin for helping to make this happen. When people see us trackside, please come over and say hello and we shall do our best to help out where possible.
