Default Tamiya at the Snowbirds???

Hey folks, anybody know if Tamiya will be represented at the Snowbird Nationals in Orlando next February???? I don't see their name in the sponsor list and I think only 2 people were running Tamiya last year. I don't think any factory drivers were there.

I understand BMI will be represented at the Snowbirds by a former factory driver. That's pretty cool!

Good luck to Team BMI.

Default Tamiya Sponsored racer

I know for a fact that Fernado Gorandino was there. He ran both the shaft drive and the belt car. He like the belt car better and it was wicked fast.

Fernando Gordinho was only one from Tamiya team last Feb. If you saw 2 people wearing black Tamiya team T-shirts, yep......Fernando and me.
He will be there again next year running EVOIII Surikarn.
Fernando will be at the Cleveland evant as well in Nov. We will see how EVOIII will perform on carpet track with foam tires....

TRF414WCR: Fernando will have the carpet track ready around first week of Nov. And we will practice from that.....in the present....Fernando doesn't have anything for carpet setup yet.
Last year Josh Cyrul came to our track (TFB Raceway Atlanta, GA). Hope Josh will come back again before Cleveland event. He and Fernando will have setups for AE , Tamiya and 12th scale around that time.
