Team Associated is well represented at the event with a deep factory team that includes big guns Ryan Cavalieri, Neil Cragg, and Yannick Aignon. In their quest for the podium, the team has been running a new buggy that the company is developing. I wasn’t able to get any pictures with the body off (I was asked politely to refrain, and yes the suspense was killing me), but Team Manager Brent Thelkie explained that this new buggy isn’t just a merely updated version, but a 90% completely new buggy that will go in to production when development is complete. No dates or specifics were given, so we’ll just have to wait and speculate. Forum experts can start crafting their elaborate conspiracy rants now. Here’s a hint: It’s new, it’s fast and it’s shiny.
