Rick Hohwart, top racer and founder of Peak Racing released a statement on the RC Tech forum announcing that he had no longer anything to do with Peak or Team Orion and has left the company he founded back in 1985.
I want to inform everyone on R/C Tech that I no longer work, race for, or have anything to with Team Orion/Peak Racing. … I will still continmue racing for Team Associated, but will now use LRP speedos, LRP BL motors, and Reedy batteries. I’d like to personally thank everyone who supported me and Peak Racing in the past. I started the company way back in 1985 and without my loyal customers and sponsors, I would have been out of the R/C industry long ago. R/C cars are my life, and I will continue working somewhere in the R/C industry. I am just not exactly sure where at this time.
