I got a couple of "tip offs" that there would be a secret LOSI test session at Batley with some big name drivers - Jukka Steenari - Travis Amezcua and Gil Losi Jr himself. So i went down with the camera and got a couple of shots off.
Nothing really new and exciting was being tested that i could see, the losi boys seemed to be trying various parts out to improve the handling of the losi cars (bk2 in particular) on our UK style tracks.
The only thing i did notice different on the cars were some older losi XXX parts being used at the back. in particular the wishbones, hub carriers (maybe xxcr ?) and inner hinge block.
Im also told there were some "drive shafts" being handed out to the drivers, which would go along with my sighting of the buggy-length losi-constant-drive from the JRxS touring car being discussed between team losi drivers and gil losi jr.
Gil Losi jr Kindly took time out to sign a couple of vintage buggys i have in my collection.
Thanks to George for taking the signing photos! :)
