After being present at the 2004 & 2006 events, top RC video producer Ray Wood will be travelling from Sydney to Florida to capture the World famous Florida Winternats race in Febuary 2008. This has only been made possible thanks to Richard Siriano of Brooklyn Hobbies, the DVD’s main sponsor. This track is a real car killer and everyone who races there knows there is no absolutely no room for error with spectacular racing from many top International drivers. Expect the DVD to be released around mid March 2008 in supporting hobby shops or online at www.raywoodrcvideos.com
