Former Team Associated driver Daniel Kobbevik has signed a 2-year deal with Japanese manufacturer Yokomo. The Norwegian frontrunner, who so far is the youngest driver ever to make an Electric Buggy European Championship A-main, will use Yokomo cars and electronics through to 2017 and he has the following to say:
It’s fantastic for me to get this chance, I can’t wait to run and race with the Yokomo products, I look forward to join the Team and I see the spirit to work together in this Team is important. Big Thanks to Lee Martin that brought me into this. I felt this was the right thing for me to do now and I really look forward to get to know the people at Yokomo. It’s not easy to say goodbye to old team mates, and I will also thank Craig Drescher that brought me into Team Associated and Brent Thielke for the time and I wish everybody at Team Associated/Reedy good luck! I will remember the good memories and the support I got, and we managed to let me be the youngest ever making an A-main at Euros.
