Team Losi drivers made history at the 2002 IFMAR Off-Road World Championships taking the top qualifying position and finishing first and second in both the 2WD and 4WD classes. This years event, held in Pretoria, South Africa, marks the first time a single RC car manufacturer has won and TQd every class at the most prestigious off-road event in the world. Matt Francis and his Trinity-powered Team Losi Triple-X4 prototype and Triple-X buggies took the top qualifying positions in both 4WD and 2WD, and Matt went on to win the 2WD class with teamate Brian Kinwald in tow. Jukka Steenari, the 2000 IFMAR 4WD champ and Team Losis newest engineer, repeated as the 4WD World Champion using Orion power. Matt was a close second in a race that saw Team Losi cars finish 1-2-3-4-5-7-9, and overall, more A-Main finalists at the Worlds used Team Losi cars than all other manufactures combined.
Congratulations to Team Losi, and stay tuned for reports from the IFMAR On-Road Worlds soon!
