After 5 years together, British ace Lee Martin has announced he’s ready to make a change to his 1/8 Nitro buggy programme leaving Mugen Seiki and heading to… Who Knows ? Highlights have included IFMAR Worlds finalist in 2012, Mugen’s first UK national Championship, multiple Neo Race finals, Italian Job Race winner and multiple European Championship final appearances.

Interestingly, the news comes only a couple of days after fewllo Brit and former protoge Jack Embling announced his departure from Kyosho not forgetting the Spanish Baldo brother’s double departure from Mugen Seiki as well.

‘The end of an era has come for me, after 5 years of driving with Mugen Seiki it is time for a change. I would publicly like to thank everyone at Mugen for the support and trust over the years working together, especially Stefan Habbecke at MSE, Sanada san, Kris Moore at MSR and John Yves Ferte for getting me on board in 2012. We had some fantastic times together and I appreciated every second of it.’ – Lee Martin
