Jared Tebo and Sidewinder are no more! After 11 short months working together, and getting some good results in 2013, they have decided to part ways. The relationship ended on good terms and is effective as of December 1. Jared Tebo had the following to say…
“I would personally like to thank all of Team Sidewinder for their support in 2013. We had some great results together and it was great working with all of you. We are ending our business relations on good terms, with no hard feelings. Change is needed sometimes, and deals just don’t always work out for certain reasons. The fuel ran great and I wish you all well in the future. Thanks again”

About 10 days or so ago… well ok, late November time, just before Xmas fever got turned up a notch or 3 Team Orion announced their Nitrostar programme to immediate intrigue and suspense amongst the online RC racing fraternity. Not content with preparing for the winter skiing season Swiss brand Team Orion are gearing up for a serious ‘go’ at this Nitrostar contest, the aim to try and unearth their new ‘star’ or even a future World Champion.
In today’s rather Star Wars-esque themed release, Orion’s nitro guru Adrien Bertin looms alongside his signature engine line like a moody Darth Vader, although we’d say Adrien might need to work on his ‘Vader voice’ in time for next season! So what to glean from this ? Well your guess is as good as ours, new distribution, engine line? Perhaps a byline into the movie biz with George Lucas ?! We’re thinking that the Orion team drivers could play the various parts…? We’re losing ourselves a bit on this one!
Either way, you’ll probably hear it first if you sign up for ‘Jedi training’ @ www.teamorion-nitrostar.com

Elliott Boots has published his end of year report which can be found in full over at his website. “With the TQ at the worlds in Argentina in late 2012, this gave me a massive boost for the 2013 race season which started with Montpellier in early Febuary, This was an excellent meeting with a very good driver turn out and with the extremely cold condition’s setup and tyre choice were key, I went on to TQ and win this event and was an excellent start to my 2013 campaign. Two weeks later I headed out with new friend Jim Boulton from Risa-Racing back in the UK, to the DIRT nitro challenge in Phoenix Arizona.

Reo Raceway’s 2013 Turkey Classic took place during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and saw 110 racers in attendance. Reo Raceway opened in 2006 and has since offered a unique racing surface that differs from the norm of highly packed surfaces found at most tracks in the region. Racers there are presented with a slightly less packed topsoil surface that has a layer of dust on top that changes throughout the day. Serpent USA regional driver’s Dan Reino and Jared Kirkwood was in attendance racing their Serpent Cobra 811-E 2.0 and Serpent Spyder SRX-2 buggies.
Dan was able to find what he needed to qualify 2nd and finish 1st ahead of Joey Givens and Jason Rudd who completed the podium for the electric buggy class. However in the 2WD buggy class it was Jared Kirkwood who was able to take advantage of his TQ and finish 1st ahead of Jason Fisher and Cade Bivins who finished second and third respectively.

Last weekend, Central Valley Raceway hosted their seventh annual North Vs South race, gathering 102 entries from all around Northern California. The track crew put together a great layout as usual, with the surface staying consistent all day. Tyler Vik would go on to start TQ for the nighttime Expert Buggy main, with AKA GridIron 2′s being perfect for the moist conditions. Vik’s mistake on the first lap would cause havoc for second place Atondo, as Curtis Door got by for the lead. Vik would regain the lead by the first pit stop, where he’d remain for the rest of the race, finishing the thirty minute main with a lap on the field.
