Announcement from SOAR Racing USA:
SOAR Racing USA is pleased to announce the acquisition of Cole Kasten to their Factory Team. SOAR has been watching the career of this young, rising star and knew that Cole, along with his father and mechanic Jeremy, were just what the brand needed to assist with results, awareness, setup assistance, and product refinement for all of the SOAR customers and existing team drivers. Cole has been racing RC cars since the age of five, but really became a serious competitor at the age of 13. His increased abilities and racing savvy culminated with his recent trip to the 2018 IFMAR World Championships in Perth, Australia, and his undefeated record to finish out the 2018 race season. The 17 year old will be piloting the full line of SOAR 8th scale vehicles and will be attending the larger races in the Midwest and Southeast, like PNB, AMS, Wicked Weekend, as well as the 2019 8th Scale Fuel Nationals. Look for his SOAR debut at SIC in just a couple of weeks!
Cole had this to say: “I’m excited for the chance to compete for SOAR and show more racers just how good these cars are! My dad and I have watched the SOAR cars go through a couple of revisions and felt that the time was right to jump on board with this team. I can’t thank Jeremy Moser enough for presenting me with this opportunity, and my dad and I look forward to working with him, Nate Johnston, and Didian Ho as we all, together, promote the SOAR brand!”
