From Billy Sutton (via email):
It is with a very heavy heart that I am an announcing the end of my 15 year tenure with Schumacher. A very important decision for me that did not come lightly.
Without the support for so many years I would not be where I am today in the RC industry and I wish everyone at HQ for believing in me since the beginning in 1989. From Cecil to Robin from Tom Cockerill to Tristram Neal and most of all I want to thanks to Muz Schumacher, who was always there to "go to bat for me" or late night phone calls and last minute orders getting me geared up for events across North America by far the best team manager someone can ask for.
Together we built some very strong teams over the years with the signing of some of the biggest names like Matthew Olson, Carson Wernimont, Mikey Brown and Adam Ronaldson that led to some remarkable results in North America proving time and time again that the Schumacher cars were not just for carpet.
All of the breaks I got throughout the industry all stemmed from the relations at Schumacher and that is something I will never forget, thank you so much for everything you guys have done and I wish everyone nothing but the best for the company in the future."
