Francesco Martini re-signs with Xray

Xray has announced that the multiple Italian Champion Francesco Martini has re-signed with the Slovakian manufacturer for the 2015 season. Francesco is an extremely dedicated touring car racer and an important member of Xray’s R&D team as he was involved in the development of the T4 platform as well of the X1 formula car. Francesco says:

I am very happy and thankful to continue my collaboration with the Hudy family. In the last year I was able to work directly on a new X1 platform development and this has been for me the greatest RC experience. Being direct involved in the entire development process from design stage through very long and exhaustive prototype testing until final production has been a great journey that I have enjoyed and that allowed me to experience how passionate, professional and dedicated everyone at Xray is with Martin in the lead. With my involvement into R&D I am fully motivated to continue our work on the further development and I am very honored to be part of this great team. I am available to anyone with any questions concerning the X1 so do not hesitate to see me.
