Driver News Shepherd launches his Driver Academy avril 29, 2021 by Chris Leave a Comment Nowadays young talents are hard to find in RC racing. Therefore Shepherd have initiated the Shepherd Drivers Acadamy (SDA) in cooperation with their local distributors to support young drivers. The first young driver Shepherd are able to announce is Vikor Lovén who is the son of well experienced 1/8 racer Mikael Fransson. I am 15 years old and live with my family in Växjö, Sweden. Wäxjö MS is my home club and my home track is located in Växjö as well. I have been driving radio-controlled cars since I was 8 years old. In 2019 both me and my dad started driving Shepherd thanks to Bengt-Göran and Stefan (Shepherd Sweden) who has helped us with fantastic support and service since then. Great supporter, car builder and mechanic is my grandfather who is always there in the background. My idol and mentor is my dad. My goal is to always have fun and maybe someday reach his level. I have started that journey. I feel grateful and proud to be part of Shepherd’s academy and will always do my best and be a representative for the Shepherd team. – Vikor Lovén How long will it take until Viktor is faster than his dad? We will see… 😉 Source: Shepherd Partagez10TweetezEnregistrer10 PartagesAbout ChrisFounder of circusrc.com, journalist & photographer in the RC world for several years, Chris is passionate about RC, racing and technique.
