Default Graham Alsop to Hot Bodies

Headline News : Alsop to Hot Bodies
Posted by Neo-Buggy Admin on 2008/11/11

As the season draws to a close, the traditional 'post-worlds driver carousel' is firmly spinning and the latest driver to switch is Britain's Graham 'Sloppy' Alsop, leaving HoBao & CML after several years together. Alsop narrowly missed out on the this years BRCA national title, but showed he is definately in the hunt for 2009. Graham expressed his thanks to everyone at CML for their support over the last few years and wishes them every success in their future pursuits.

Alsop will be driving the World Champion D8 car for Mirage Distribution, with rather mysteriously: a Mirage distributed engine, which could mean an engine by Orion, Nosram, O'Donnell, GRP or Falcon maybe? We will see....

Mirage and Hot Bodies are proud to announce the arrival of Graham Alsop to their UK 1/8th Rallycross team.

Graham finished 2nd in the 2008 National series after a season long tussle with Neil Cragg but, in the final race of the year Graham lost out to Neil.

After some serious off-season testing Graham found the D8 buggy to be the easiest and most consistently fast buggy to drive. Along with the unparalleled backing of Mirage's extensive range of race products Graham's choice was easy to make where to go for 2009.

Already, Graham has chosen O'Donnell fuel to feed the engine of his choice. Nosram LiPo packs will provide the power to the radio gear. Edit option parts will provide his D8 with the finishing touches to wring every ounce of performance from the D8.

Graham brings a wealth of R/C knowledge and his results over the last few years that show a consistent improvement at the very top level of the sport.
Also joining the Mirage team will be Rachel Merry. Rachel is known as the first lady of RC and more recently Graham's long suffering pit-crew.

Rachel isn't to be messed with on the track though and has a mean turn of speed when she gets behind the wheel. Rachel will also be piloting the HB D8 buggy through 09 and using Mirage branded products to power her D8.

Graham and Rachel join 2008 HB 'Lone Ranger' Tony Truman. Tony managed heroics in 2008 with the Lightning Pro Evo, piloting the car to a National A final appearance. He then piloted the D8 straight into the A main on it's UK debut at the Talywain National. Finishing the year off by winning the Junior Championships.

Welcome to the Mirage Racing Team Graham and Rachel.
