Matrix sign Chris Tosolini for Worlds

Matrix sign Chris Tosolini for Worlds

We can exclusively confirm that Top US racing star, and 1:8 scale Worlds finalist, Chris Tosolini has signed to use Matrix tyres at the upcoming 1:10 200mm Nitro World Championships in Portugal. Cristian Boni the owner of Matrix, a young and ambitous Italian brand, gave us the scoop here at the 1:8 Euros in Valencia and told us that the deal will also include Tosolini running their foam range of tyres for the 2009 season in both Gas and Electric racing.

It is understood that rival brand ATS was close to a deal with the 2006 US National Champion for the Worlds but the Kyosho driver is understood to have been influenced by engine sponsor Sirio to run Matrix products thus ending ATS’s plans to recuit the American. The 2008 IFMAR 1:10 200mm World Championships takes place from 11-17 August and Red RC will be present to bring our readers live coverage from the Lisbon event.
