Naoto Matsukura and Yokomo part ways


Multiple IFMAR 1/12th World Champion and current Electric Touring Car World Champion Naoto Matsukura today announced his shock departure from long term sponsor Yokomo. The protege of RC legend Masami Hirosaka has been under contract with the Japanese manufacturer for the last 10 years and it us understood that both parties parted ways amicably. When contacted the Japanese star gave no information aboutĀ hisĀ future plans or his reason for leaving but it is strange timing with the Yatabe Arena in Japan, Yokomo’s own track, hosting the 1/10th EP offroad Worlds next October. More information as we get it.
