More HPI news with the announcement that they have signed 2-time gas onroad World Champion, and head of Orion’s engine development, Adrien Bertin. ‘We are excited not only to be adding a winner of IFMAR World Championships in both nitro on road classes but also an ambassador for RC who has earned a high level of respect across the industry. With Adrien joining our established team of top level drivers we eagerly await the start of the 2014 season and a bright future ahead for Team HB!’ Adrien had this to say:
I am really proud to join the HB / HPI Racing team and would like to thank Tatsuro Watanabe and Hiroyuki Kasuya for the great welcome I received. Hot bodies is one of the few world champion brands to have a winning car in any class it attends and this is a great demonstration of their passion and design experience. I am happy to join this team to help in developing their recent nitro on road racing car and make it successful on highest level. Finally I would like to thanks Kenny and KM Racing for their support in 2013.
