Pavidis fuelled by VP Powermaster


After signing up British star Elliott Boots at the end of March, VP turn their attention in this case to a name that you’ll all recognise – Pavidis… Having signed up the cruise-missile that is Boots, VP turn their attention back across the pond, opting for age, experience and a streamlined-looking Mark Pavidis.

VP PowerMaster would like to welcome our new addition to the team, 2006 IFMAR Nitro Off-Road World Champion, Mark Pavidas. Mark is one of the most widely-known and accredited off-road racers in the R/C racing world. Mark’s name is also synonymous with AKA Products, the championship winning tires and accessory company he co-founded with two other R/C legends, Joel Johnson and Gil Losi Jr. Mark knows a thing or two about R/C and what it takes to win at the highest levels of R/C nitro racing.

He chose VP PowerMaster to give him solid performance and incredible fuel economy. We couldn’t be happier to have Mark on the team. In Mark’s first race out on VP PowerMaster he brought home the TQ and win in the 1/8 Buggy Masters class at this year’s 2013 Nitro Challenge race in Arizona and then did it all again at the 2013 Silver State Off-road Challenge in Vegas.
