Make no mistake, that was no fluke result. He is better than a vast majority of the US top drivers, if he starts racing over in the US which could be what's happening then everyone better watch out!


Cheers

Cheers for clearing that up

i didnt ever think it was a fluke result the kid has skills period.

Looks like more to come!

NB: Lastly a cheeky question if you could sign one driver in 1/8 Offroad apart from those you have, who would it be ?
JD: Next on our hit list is Robert Batlle.
But for a dream team I would add Hara, Tebo, Drake (top pros) and Ronnefalk (young talent)– who wouldn’t
Anyway back to reality, we need a bit more representation in the USA – Kansas and Phoenix are the only clues I will give right now. If I’ve missed anyone let me know LOL

Next up, they hinted at someone from Kansas. Well he's actually not from Kansas but to a German and a Brit, Kansas City means Kansas. :-) This could only mean Taylor James. He is the fastest in the area next to Tebo, and wouldn't you know, he is almost done with an engineering degree. Hmm, wonder where he will be working soon. :-)

Well, don't you think that might be the reason he's leaving AE?

So if he is not the number 1 AE driver, who is? (remember, he's in Europe, not USA)
