We are hearing a rumour out of the US that custom motor building firm Team Br00d has run into some financial problems and as a result is having to release its contracted factory drivers. We hope that these difficulties wont affect the production of their motors, and their other business concerns, but we believe it has left many top drivers looking for new motor sponsors. According to the team list on the companys website this could affect factory drivers Travis Amezcua, Billy Easton, Mike Blackstock, Travis Schreven, Ralph Burch, Chris Tosolini, Jarrod Langlois, Jarrod Scott & Dakotah Phend, some of which have only recently signed to the company. We hope to bring you more details about this situation when we hear them.
UPDATE: According to Eddie O on RC Tech yesterday, he says that Burch and Tosolini are staying put for the time being and Schreven will also be representing Br00d at next months Nationals.
UPDATE 2: We were contacted by Team Brood to clarify their situation and it seems that all is very well with the business, with a lot of infrastructure upgrades recently implemented and lots of additions to the companys inventory. There has been some changes in their team, as we heard, with these changes mostly affecting their paid team drivers, but they will retain the services of Travis Schreven as well as Burch and Tosolini for the time being. Team Brood also stated that they had added some members to their team line-up but that the list on their site is yet to be updated. Good to hear.
