TLR have announced the signing of JR Mitch to the TLR team, Spektrum, Orion and Horizon Hobby. With JR’s lively attitude on and off the track and long history of racing experience makes JR a perfect fit at TLR. JR will be a key driver in the Florida area along with the east coast racing scene. JR will attend both electric and nitro races for TLR throughout the year with his first big event being the upcoming Neo Race in England. JR will also attend the 1/8th Off-Road World Championship in Argentina later this year. JR Mitch had this to say:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank AE/Reedy for more than ten years of support and guidance in racing. There are a few people who stand out to me for making a significant impact during my time with this company. I would like to give special recognition to: Cliff Lett, Brent Thielke, Richard Saxton, and Rick Hohwart. At this point in time, I am not leaving AE/Reedy with any hard feelings. I just feel that it is time for a change and look forward to the opportunities that await for me racing with TLR. Once again, thank you for the many years I have spent racing with you.
