Summer Heat

As the weather in CA heats up so does the 1/8th racing action. It's been a busy couple of months with the ROAR 1/8th buggy Nationals, JBRL series, Saturday Series, testing, and preparing for the IFMAR World Championship in September. Racing this year has been great for Losi and myself. The are so many races and the competition is at an all time high.

I'm sure you all know, but Mike Truhe won the 1/8th ROAR Nationals a few weeks back with his GRP powered Losi 8ight. Billy Fischer finished second and I came home in fifth. It was a very exciting time for everyone at Losi. I was standing between Mike and Billy during the ROAR final and I was the first to congratulate Mike on a very impressive run. The first words out of Mike's mouth were, "thank you for everything, this was a team effort". This is what makes me so happy to be a part of Horizon / Losi. I feel honored to work with and to be friends with so many great people.

Matt Castellano

My name is Matt Castellano and I am 18 years old. I was born in Norwalk, Connecticut but moved to Temecula, California when I was 3 years old and have lived here ever since. I have been racing for about 6 years now and have been racing for Team Losi since August of 2006. I graduate High School tomorrow (June 13th) which will allow me to concentrate even more on racing. I plan on going to college in the Fall though I have not decided which school. Thanks for reading.
