ARC have announced the signing of Luxembourg’s Dirk Rischard to their team. The former Serpent driver will use the company’s R8.0 2016 nitro on-road kit during this year’s campaign that will include appearances at events such as the Luxembourg and German National Championships, the ENS and other major races. Dirk has to say the following about the deal:
I started my racing career with Serpent and want to thank Serpent Motorsport and especially Ronald, Jirka and Michael to have supported me during the last years. But now it is time for a new challenge and I’m happy to announce to team up with ARC factory team. ARC has one of the most competitive car on the market and I will represent ARC at all major races on the 2016 calendar including ENS, the German and Luxembourg championship as official ARC factory driver and I’m sure together we can achieve good results. I would like to thank Jones Chu and John Ermen for putting the trust in me and for this awesome opportunity. I can’t wait to work with the new team and really looking forward to see you on the track.
