Andy Moore & Hiroyuki Kasuya depart HPI/HB

Andy Moore & Hiroyuki Kasuya depart HPI/HB

In a shock announcement former IFMAR World and EFRA European Champion, Andy Moore as well as team manager Hiroyuki Kasuya have announced their departure from HPI/HB. Both ended their contracts by mutual consent after being with the company for more than 10 years. The news comes after recent problems with the HPI company, in particular HPI Europe which was put in administration in January and we are sure it is not the last team driver to announce his departure in the coming days and weeks. This is what Andy has to say:

I’d like to inform everyone that I have by mutual consent ended my contract with HPI Inc. I want to especially thank Tatsuro Watanabe, Toshihiko Hara and Hiroyuki Kasuya for their help and support over the years. And of course my team mates and work colleagues both past and present for the great times and lots of memorable moments. During almost 12 years together we’ve had some fantastic results becoming World Champions, European Champions, National Champions and multiple TITC Champions along the way. I’d like to wish everyone at HPI all the best for the future and look forward to seeing you all at the track soon.

Murray wins at BRCA GT12 National Champs Rd2

Murray wins at BRCA GT12 National Champs Rd2

Last weekend saw the second round of the 2016 BRCA GT12 National Championship, at the recently opened MB Models Raceway. With 98 drivers booked in, this event was probably the largest and most competitive race GT12 has ever seen. The winner of national round 1, Adam Catchpole (Zen) put in a fantastic run to take the pole position, with Schumacher’’s Andy Murray less than a second behind. James Hart (Schumacher) completed the top 3 on the grid. The A-final saw a spectacular race up front, with Adam and Andy pulling out a gap to the rest of the field as they carried out an intense battle. All eyes were on the battle to see Andy showing much improved form and putting pressure onto the current national champion. This continued until around the half way point when the tiniest mistake from Adam allowed Andy a way through. This battle thrilled the large crowd for the rest of the 6 minutes. Ultimately Andy took the win, his first national victory in GT12, just ahead of Adam. James Hart (3rd) and Aidan Ripley (4th) could break away from the battle for 5th place. 5th to 10th was a super close battle with all 6 drivers finishing within less than 5 seconds.
