Yukijiro Umino joins Team Serpent as designer/manager

Serpent has announced that former Yokomo touring car designer and top mechanic Yukijiro Umino has joined them in a designer/manager role. Away from the sport for 3 years, Umino was responsible for designing some of the most successful touring cars in recent years and was well known as Ronald Volker’s mechanic, their partnership culminating in the 2016 World title. Umino had the following to say about the deal:

First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Joaquin and Mr. Lau for giving me this great opportunity for joining Team Serpent. During the past three years I was away from the RC racing scene. However, my passion and motivation have never stopped. And now it is the time for me to move on. I will continue to come up with innovative ideas and create cars that will please everyone. Other than that, I will be involved not only in the races, but in all aspects of Serpent, so you can count on me.
