As of October 1st, 2007, Yannick will be using Team Losi Racing’s 8IGHT and 8IGHT-T race vehicles, tools and accessories in all competitions. To control his new rides, Yannick has turned to Spektrum for the ultimate in control, safety and reliability. Some of Yannick’s career highlights include:

* 2004 IFMAR 1/8-Scale Off-Road World Championships Top Qualifier
* 2005 European Championships Top Qualifier

* 2006 European Championships Top Qualifier and Champion

Yannick Aigoin’s experience and expertise make him an ideal fit with Losi and Spektrum. From everyone at Losi and Spektrum we’d like to extend a warm welcome to Yannick Aigoin and wish him the best of luck at the up-coming IFMAR Worlds Warm-Up, the 2008 1/8-Scale IFMAR World Championships and beyond.

Wow! That's great news for Losi. Yannick is certainly one of the best drivers in the world. He will make a great addition to your team, Aaron! Congrats!

Damn! My favorite brand's best driver leaving them. He is probably the fastest driver in the world, but he also has the worlds worst luck! Good news for Losi though, thats for sure.

freefallmarine - Yes it will. :-)

Chris - I'm sure everyone is thrilled to have him on board. I'm very excited to see what Yannick will do for Losi's presence in Europe!

Awesome, Aigion is an extremely fast driver. Glad to see he made the dive to Losi. Losi deserves to have more of their cars running in Europe.

I think Yanick will do allright if he slows down and drives the Losi , It doesn't like the drifting methods he uses If he drives a clean line like onroad he will be incredible with the car ! I wonder why he left X-Ray ? I think the car was too hard to keep dialed . This is what I had found when driving one . Track changed and the car needed to also be changed.
My Losi ..... set it and forget it !! I love it !!

Good for him and for Losi, but with his driving style i reckon its gonna be on its roof more than too often, Good luck with it all tho Yannick, no more drifting corners

Matt - I'm so glad someone else brought that up, so I didn't have to.

I do not know what engine or radio equipment Yannick will run. But I'm sure he will find a way to be competitive with the 8IGHT buggy as he has with his previous teams.
