Just a few weeks ago SWORKz made a big splash in the R/C industry when multiple world-champion, Atsushi Hara, was hired to help develop the racing program and vehicles for the next three years. To further grow the brand, SWORKz will cultivate a U.S. based team lead by Marty Korn. The current A Main Hobbies’ race team, which is also managed by Korn will continue to race for their respective chassis sponsors. Racers who have a professional attitude and are interested in representing SWORKz can reach Marty directly at sworkzusa(at)amain.com.

Yesterday morning as the annual Nuremberg toy fair kicked off in cold Germany, Taiwanese company SWorkz posted up a very teasing image on their Facebook profile, showing what looks like Atsushi Hara’s wing (and car) hidden under a cloth with the promise of
“The Big news will be coming on 1st Feb“.
Even more tellingly, Sworkz Europe tagged two persons in that post – Atsushi Hara himself and A Main Hobbies’ team manager Marty Korn.
For some time now we’ve followed Hara’s rollercoaster car-testing rounds, the Japanese samurai even went so far as fuelling the fire by spoof signing for JQ Products as he tried ‘THE Car’, however the underlying theme throughout the ‘post HPI’ process has been the prominence of A Main Hobbies.
For some time we’ve known that Hara has visited and had discussions with one of the main factories in China, coupled with old rumours of A Main’s ambitions to produce their own car, that project never seemed to get off the ground entirely. Enter Sworkz and the puzzle begins to fall into place…
A Main is a close partner and distributor of SWORKz in N.America, even whilst attending the 1/10 Worlds in Chico in September, it was clear that the two companies had good relations, Marty Korn racing SWORKz’ robust 4WD 1/10 buggy, and if sources are to be believed that Hara will be racing as an ‘A Main Hobbies’ driver in 2014 and with A Main promoting the SWorkz car, he will be racing that in offroad, perhaps even going further with an A Main/Sworkz link up for a Hara brand of products.
Lastly Hara-san is in Germany at the moment, due to run the Yokomo branded ETS series, in fact he flew into Frankfurt airport yesterday, Nuremberg is about a two-hour drive from Frankfurt, might he make a cameo appearance on Monday at the Toy Fair?!

Jared Tebo has announced that he has signed for A Main Hobbies! Tebo had the following to say: “I am very excited to be joining the Amain Hobbies team for 2014. Amain Hobbies has all the extra resources that I need to have my program perfected for the new season. They will help me with anything extra that I may need to reach my racing goals in 2014. Racing at the top level takes a lot of help, a lot of resources and I think this addition will really benefit my program and allow me to be better prepared and ready to race. I would personally like to thank Kendall Bennett, Marty Korn, and everyone at Amain Hobbies. Look forward to seeing everyone at the races very soon.”

In a slightly earlier turn of events Jared Tebo posted up a preview of his 2014 Official race t-shirt design on his website JTPRC.com – the design revealed two new additions, a return to running for Maxima Fuel – the fuel industry newcomer he split with a year into a two-year deal after some disappointment. Tebo signed for Sidewinder in January 2013, also a two-year deal however the split was announced at the start of December after a strong year together.
The return to Maxima comes as a slight surprise, its no secret in the pitlane that 2012 witnessed some difficulties for the Thai based fuel and Tebo, however their backing of the likes of Jilles Groskamp in onroad complete with a burgeoning OS-based engine line and out-of-RC-industry activities in the oil business means deeper pockets and potentially more resources.
The second news is the addition of A Main Hobbies to the prized real estate on Jared Tebo’s chest of sponsors.
The online shopping goliath has made alterations to their in-house team lineup with hints that big names would be signed – even going so far as to tempt Atsushi Hara to be chassis-free and only run for A Main Hobbies.
