With Ryan Lutz making the move from Agama to WRC, his engine sponsor has also changed with the US driver making the switch back to Alpha engines. Having previously raced for the brand for 7 years he is back and not only is Ryan rejoining the Alpha team, but his roles have been expanded and will be their US market partner. Ryan had this to say:
I am greatly honoured to be welcomed back to the Alpha family. I was sad to depart four years ago and so I am glad to be able to have this opportunity to rejoin with this wonderful company. In my absence they have further developed the Dragon line of engines now with the Dragon 4 edition 2. In my testing it has proven to be a top competitor and I can’t wait to showcase it to the world. They have also given me the privilege of distributing the product line throughout the American market again through my small business LutzRC. I am looking forward to once again supporting this great company and their customer base.
