Daan Jacobs rejoins Serpent to race the 733

Serpent have announced that top Dutch 1/10th scale racer Daan Jacobs has returned to their team for the 2010 season. Having raced for Xray for the last two seasons, Daan will next year compete in the Dutch and German Nationals as well as the European Championships in Sweden with his Sirio powered 733.

I am looking forward to the season of 2010. But I also want to thank Xray for the last two seasons. They always support me great and I really enjoyed it, I want to thank my sponsor Dutch supermarket chain Albert Heijn Amsterdam (Griffioen) and of course the RC shop where I work, 2brothers RC. I chose Serpent also because it is a Dutch company and with the promising 733 car this is an opportunity to improve myself to become a more complete driver.
