In a slight turn of events, we received a few photos from a keen contributor which suggest the Japanese legend Atsushi Hara might have agreed a deal with the Finnish brand JQ Products to drive THE Car.

As many of our readers might be aware, JQ & team manager Ilias have been touring Asia on their aptly named ‘Asia Tour‘ – it seems in that time the duo have met up and spent time together both in Thailand and other countries, and sources tell us that Hara was spotted testing JQ’s White Edition buggy after his C-Netic win (with the Kyosho MP9).

Its no secret that Hara has been ‘shopping around’ since his departure from HB / HPI; racing Mugen’s MBX7 to victory at the FEMCA Championships, winning the C-Netic race and heaping praise on the MP9’s design, however unlike his previous ‘privateer arrive n’ drive‘   the photos we obtained below during a supposed contract signing would suggest a deal has been inked already, not to mention…
