Speed Passion V3 motors and 2010 IFMAR events

Speed Passion V3 motors and 2010 IFMAR events

Speed Passion Europe were in touch to issue a statement regarding the use of their latest V3 motors at this year’s IFMAR sanctioned events. Due to an administration oversight these EFRA and ROAR legal motors are not on the IFMAR approved list (PDF) for 2010 and therefore can not be used. The reigning touring car World Champions have stated that their V2 motors are still on the approved list and racers wishing to use these motors can contact Toni Rheinard to arrange the use of them for those events.

Hello Speed Passion customers and drivers,

There has been a great deal of growth and innovation from Speed Passion and all the King Golden brands during the last year. We have expanded our distribution network, expanded our production capabilities, and added new sales, support and development staff. Thanks to you, we are one of the very few RC companies in the industry that have grown successfully during these challenging economic times.

Unfortunately, with all the new products, new dealers and distributors, and new staff for 2010, we have made a mistake. We have missed the deadline for submitting V3 motors for IFMAR competition in 2010. Our V2 motors are still in production, and are still on the approved list and may be used in IFMAR events. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for our IFMAR drivers soon to compete for a second consecutive on road world championship this year. Please contact us directly if you need to buy V2 motors, or see Toni Rheinard who will be attending both the warm up event and worlds race. Toni will have V2 motors available to lend out for the events, to be returned to him at the end of the race.

With our thanks,

Speed Passion Staff
