Default RHEINARD / TEAM CHECKPOINT...DONE DEAL!

World Domination…Checkpoint Style!

O’Donnell Racing
December 15, 2006
Santa Fe Springs, California

O’Donnell Racing continues to shock and impress the world. As if it wasn’t enough to have IFMAR World Champion Atsushi Hara join the team, Team Checkpoint has repeated the feat by adding another IFMAR World Champion...one of racing’s hottest stars, Marc Rheinard!

Rheinard has signed a multi-year contract to run Team Checkpoint’s Modified Motors and Signature Series Batteries exclusively. He will also step up his nitro program — exclusively running the unbeatable combination of O’Donnell Race Blend Fuel and World Championship-winning O’Donnell Glow Plugs.

Rheinard has earned a worldwide reputation for success by winning just about every major contest: the IFMAR World Championship; LRP Masters; Reedy Race of Champions; TITC; DHI Cup; and on, and on.

Every time Rheinard stands behind the wheel, you know you are about to witness something amazing. With the combination of Team Checkpoint horsepower and Signature Series voltage, Rheinard will be setting TQs and winning championships the instant he hits the track.

Team Checkpoint and O’Donnell Racing are extremely pleased and honored to welcome Marc Rheinard to our team. We look forward to sharing countless championships together!

Team Checkpoint needs now a brushless system.
In Europe Marc needs it because with 5 cell it is unbeatable.

For the indoor season in Europe he should have all the power needed with the brush system. Besides with the resources of Hobbico a brushless system won't be a problem they will provide it to him if it is needed.

Not desperate at all. This is a business....If they can pay him more money to run their products then why not do it? He can make more running for them and have great products why not do it?? After all when you are operating a business, RC or not, dont you want to have the best employee's you can afford?
