Kyosho representing RC at Japanese F1 Grand Prix

With Formula 1 in Suzuka this week for the Japanese Grand Prix it is nice to see iconic Japanese RC brand Kyosho making the most of the opportunity to represent our sport as they hang out with the Alpine F1 team.  Legend of 1:8 Offroad both as a driver and as Kyosho’s MP Buggy designer, Yuichi Kanai has been showing off the latest MP10 finished in Alpine colour scheme to F1 great Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon.  Bringing along a second car in his own trademark green colour scheme, Kanai brought the sound & smell of nitro to the paddock as himself and Orcon drove both cars.  Having got his hands on Orcon’s #31 Alpine A522 steering wheel, apparently Kanai is waiting patiently for the team to offer him his first Formula 1 driving experience!!
