CML have welcomed Phil Sleigh to the Associated team for 2010. The former X-Factory driver brings with him a wealth of experience having been racing at national level for many years. The last couple of years have seen Phil move up a level and take his first national victory. Phil will be driving the Associated B4 & B44 cars with Novak Electronics and had this to say about the deal:
Joining the CML team to run for Team Associated is an awesome opportunity. Both the B4 & B44 are proven race winning chassis’ and I hope to use this to produce consistently high National results in both 2WD & 4WD. The team have already been great with set-up help and I’m sure I’ll be taking advantage of the vast AE experience within the team through-out the year. I’ll be running both the Novak Ballistic motors and the soon to be available new Kinetic speedos and from early running the Novak equipment provides excellent power and smooth delivery. I have also taken the chance to switch to running Savox servos, which have become a very popular, affordable and high performance option used by many top racers.
Phil’s racing plans for 2010 include all off-road Nationals, the Euros in Vienna and competing in the Mid-West Regionals.
