TLR UK and Horizon Hobby UK have announced the signing of former Kyosho racer Jack Embling to their team for 2017. Jack heads up the TLR UK team’s 2017 campaign as reigning national Truggy champion, podium finisher in E-Buggy and Top 4 in Rally cross, which bodes well for a strong upcoming season with TLR UK both nationally and internationally. He joins as part of a continued effort from TLR UK to focus on 1/8th rally cross and 1/10th off-road racing in the coming year alongside the growth of its large scale team with the introduction of the 5B. The 1/8th team will again be supported by 1/8th Team Manager Karl Jackson and TLR Trackside Support Wayne Davis both of who’s efforts where key in 2016, alongside the continued overall trackside support of 1/10th team manger Christopher Delves. Jack had the following to say about his new deal:
I’m extremely excited to announce that I’m joining the TLR / Horizon Hobby team for 2016 and onwards. I would like to thank Mark, Garry and Karl at Horizon for bringing me on board with this fantastic opportunity. I can’t wait to start racing with my new cars and challenging for some big race wins next year.
