I’d like to thank Max and Oleg for the great opportunity to join the Awesomatix Factory Team. I felt it was the time for a change and Awesomatix was the only team I wanted to join. The previous and last results proved their car is one of the best on the market and their professionalism and continued R&D show this is a team to watch in the near future. I’m really looking forward to start working with my new teammates and achieve many good results for the team, my first race being the French Nats round 1 by the end of March. I’d also like to thank Team Yokomo for the wonderful last 7 years together and I wish them all the best for the upcoming season.
