Former Xray driver Ryan Lopez will be joining Team Losi Racing to race their 8ight buggy for 2011. Ryan had this to say:
“I am very excited about my new opportunity with TLR. Team losi is well known for having some of the best and fastest cars on the market and I am looking forward to representing there company for a long time to come. I want to say thanks to Ralph Burch and Mr Hudy for all the great support I have gotten the past five years with Xray. They have helped me get where I am today and I appreciate everything they have done for me. I also would like thank Byron’s fuels and Vp-pro-usa for the support the past few years. Both are great companies with even better people.”
He sounds excited to make the move and I’m sure TLR is just as excited to have signed him. From what I know, I don’t think he has won any major events, but seems like a consistent racer. We will just have to see as he joins Losi in 2011.
