Our site sponsors, The Border, have forwarded us some information concerning Motonica’s new signing Milko Tenthof. Milko, for those of you who dont know, used to be a Serpent employee as well as team driver up until 3 or so years ago when he and the Dutch manufacturer parted company. In those years racing, Milko had raced in World and European Championship finals as well as winning numerous EFRA GP’s and National Championships and that is why this signing is important for Motonica. Although he hasnt raced since leaving Serpent, Milko will conduct test work, and some EFRA GP’s, for the Dutch importer PDS while Daniel van der Drift (right) will race the car in the Dutch National Championships with 3rd driver Michel Nijman racing in the Nomac class.
