Xray have announced the signing of reigning Italian Champion and long-time Xray privateer, Dante Piersante to their factory team. Dante will use the NT1 1/10th 200mm nitro on-road car in the national championship, regional races as well as selected international events such as the World Championships in Gubbio, the Italian Championship Series and also the ENS. Dante says:
As a private semi sponsored driver I have been racing with Xray for several years winning also my first national title last season. As Italy will host this season the World Championship I wanted to ensure to have the best possible chances and there was no other option for me than to team up with Xray factory team to have the best performing car and the most professional team in backup. I will practice and work hard the entire season to be ready for the Worlds. You can see me at all Italian races and I will be glad to help anyone. Thanks to Xray for this opportunity.
