During this weekend’s Euro Touring Series fourth round in Andernach, Germany, Bruno RC, the brand of multi-class talent and round 4 winner, Bruno Coelho, has announced the signing of former IFMAR World Champion, Alexander Hagberg to the BR1 team. Alexander will be using Bruno RC’s BR1 brand servos in his Xray rides from now on and he had the following to say:
It was a natural move for me to join the BR1 brand. I know that Bruno’s objective with the brand is very professional, and it will also further improve our team work, as we will work from the exact same platform. My initial impression after testing the servo was very positive. The steering feel is very natural, with good response, as a result of the low CG integrated mount, which also saves a lot of weight – something that is very important mainly due to the new weight limit rules of the ETS. The BR1 servo is definitely the best servo for our T4 platform, as it’s designed with this car in mind. I am looking forward to using this and other BR1 products in the future!
