REDS Racing dismiss Ryan Maifield

In a move that is widely being lauded by online commentary, respected Italian engine marque REDS announced today they have split from US team driver Ryan Maifield, only days after starting from pole position and finishing 3rd at the IFMAR Worlds in Perth Australia.

“Following the events that occurred during the IFMAR World Championship 2018 in Australia, we wanted to announce that Ryan Maifield has been dismissed from Reds Racing Team for breaching the contract.” – Facebook

The industry respected and decorated Mugen driver choosing to run a brand of crankcase and carb other than from the sponsor he represented since January 2016. for personal competitive reasons. With all drivers pitting under one central large tent, secrets aren’t kept for long, and rumours were rife towards the end of qualifying. Ryan would go on to put in a dominant performance in the semis and would start on pole and lead for the first third of the final before taking the final podium spot.

Despite history repeating itself; Maifield is no stranger to mixing and matching cooling heads with other engines, over the years deja vu with the likes of Orion, Novarossi and GRP back in the day.

A sad end to a partnership that brought both much success.
