Gday Gary,

Scotty usually doesn't have an entry cut off as far as I'm aware.

Day 3 Driver reveal..

So he's the first of our international drivers and his present form has been WHITE HOT!!!!
His local club is Trccc - Taranaki Radio Controlled Car Club located in New Plymouth on the North island of New Zealand, it's Luke Duthie.
Luke, his brother Jayden and father Selwyn have been racing for decades now.
In this time they've traveled far and wide with great success at home and abroad.
Luke currently has 8 NZRCA - New Zealand Radio Car Association tiles under his belt in the 8th Open Onroad division and also has numerous EP titles as well.
But late last year whilst attending the AARCMCC IC On-Road Nitro Racing National Championships @ the extremely challenging MRCCR Inc, Luke and Selwyn manage what might be one of the biggest upsets in 8th scale racing history here in Australia, when the took out the coveted title of Australian National Champion!!!!
Time will tell if the fairy tale continues, but knowing the names of the pilots still to be released, it's going to be a battle for the ages if he can pull it off....

I'd also like to give a shout out to Shane Merrall, Daniel Burrows and Scott Robinson who we believe are also making the journey from the land of the long white cloud.
Can't wait to catch up with you guys

Day 8 Driver reveal....So today we're super pumped, because we get to add another IFMAR World Champion to our growing international entrant list.
This pilot is more known for his expertise on the EP side of the sport and he took what would have to be his career highlight at the 2006 ISTC IFMAR World Championships, taking the WIN and as such, stamp his authority on the sport. There's been many titles since then and more recently he's been working towards a big win in a nitro class ever since signing with the Creation Model Ltd. #Inf1inty team.
We think this big big win is just around the corner and it might just be at our Asian Nitro Championship round in April. Que up 'God Save the Queen'.....Because he's the super star from the United Kingdom!!

Please welcome Andy Moore!!!!!

2006 IFMAR Touring car World Champion
12 times IFMAR World Championships A main finalist
3 times EFRA EUROPEAN CHAMPION:
- 2007 EFRA European 1/12 scale Champion
- 2006 EFRA European Touring car Champion
