From Team Associated:
It is with heavy heart that we have learned of the news of Brian Kinwald’s passing. Brian passed away peacefully in his sleep on April 3, 2019.
Brian was an icon in our industry for over 25 years and in that time won two IFMAR World Championships and countless National Titles. In recent years Brian took to mentoring select up-and-coming racers who caught his eye for talent. As part of “Team Kinwald,” Brian would share valuable insight and help groom them for success. If you ever got a chance to sit down and speak with Brian, you’d quickly find out that he lived and breathed RC racing. His determination to succeed was matched only by the time he put in to the sport. All of us at Associated Electrics are proud to be a part of his journey and his memory will live on through countless stories, accomplishments and memorials. #WeAreAE
