“Team Associated Announces 1/8th Offroad Race Team
Associated has drawn on the knowledge of its unprecedented 20 IFMAR World Championships to create the highly anticipated ‘Factory Team RC8′. This is Associated’s first venture into 1/8th scale offroad racing and they are looking to make an immediate impact.
Set to lead the Worldwide racing campaign for the RC8 are current ROAR 1/8th Scale National Champion, Ryan Maifield, two-time IFMAR World Champion Ryan
Cavalieri and multi-time U.S. National Champion, Richard Saxton. In addition,
ROAR “A” main finalist JR Mitch and Kyle Skidmore will focus on regional events
and select National contests in the United States.
Joining these drivers, with the support of CML Distributing, are current IFMAR World
Champion, Neil Cragg and “Mr. Everything” Craig Drescher. Also representing
Team Associated and the RC8, with the assistance of Thunder Tiger Europe, are
EFRA European Champions Peter Pinisch and Jörn Neumann.
Look for all these drivers and more to start competing with the Factory Team RC8 in
early 2007 at major events near you.
