Team Sonic have announced the cooperation with former World and European Champion Daniele Ielasi. Together with Sonic creator Patrick Schäfer he is responsible for the development and improvement of the engine line as well as for the sales and support for the competitive Italian market. Additionally he will attend all major national and international races including the 1/8 Euros in Portugal, the 1/10 Euros in Italy and the 1/10 Worlds in Thailand using the Sonic V.12T and the Sonic V.21T. Daniele had the following to say:
First of all I would like thank Picco for the good support over the past years. As the Sonic engines are produced by them I’m sure we continue to be in close contact. Sonic engines offers me a new challenge and I’m extremly happy to increase the collaboration with Shepherd/Sonic and Patrick Schäfer. With my experience I will help as much as possible to ensure a high quality standard and best performance of the Sonic engines.
