Renaud Savoya, who yesterday confirmed he had left RB, has signed for Team Orion. The 3-time European Champion had been with the French brand for 4 years and this move coincides with the Shark’s move to running electric offroad for main sponsor Xray. Reno joins David Ronnefalk on the European team and both will assist Adrien Bertin with the development of the company’s line of engines. Renaud had this to say about the deal.
It’s a real pleasure for me to join Team Orion. I followed for many years their dedication and great results in both electro and nitro classes, and I’m proud to be part of it now. We can’t be anything other than impressed with the professionalism they are bringing to our passion. Working with Adrien is a great opportunity for me, as we live close to each other, and we will have a real connection for developing and working on the nitro engine department. I will of course push as much as I can all the products made by Team Orion in all the classes I’m running! Can’t wait to start racing with my new updated package this week end in Padova for Italian Job! Don’t mess with the Shark!
