See: XRAY

XRAY in collaboration with RC Disco have announced the signing of Callum Niblett to their team. The Vice Euro B Champion and multi-time Regional and Club Champion will be using his XRAY rides regional and national events in UK during the 2019 season. C.Niblett had the following to say:

“I’m really excited to get started with the XRAY XB8’19, it’s clearly a fast car and it fits the type of design buggy that I was wanting, especially with Pivot Ball front suspension (and C-Hub as an option). As soon as I knew Greg was looking to expand the XRAY Rally X Team I enquired and was thrilled to be welcomed to join and become part of a new project in growing Team XRAY’s Rally X here in the UK. I know he’s got other top drivers already lined up so 2019 is going to be great fun and hopefully competitive at the Nationals for us. If anyone is interested in the cars or has any questions, then don’t hesitate to come speak with me or Matt Box (RC Pit Box) and the XRAY team trackside.”
