RC4WD Press Release March 25th 2011
RC4WD has a commitment to the RC Hobby and Sport, and with that, we would like to welcome John “Rckcrwlr” Thornton as Team Manager for US and International Drivers, recently handled by Tom Allen. With John’s experience, we are looking forward to him taking the team to the next level. He started in the hobby over 10 years ago and has a broad interest in everything RC from Helicopters to Crawling to Scale to Short Course, and recently Large Scale.
As President of Western PA Crawlers, he has been instrumental in developing and growing the club and general interest in RC in Western PA and the surrounding areas. John also owns Networkhobbies.com, a site that networks clubs and hobbies of all types. Three years ago, John took on the role of Rockcrawling Event Manager for Motorama, a two day competition that results in over 45,000 spectators. It has earned a spot as a USRCCA Qualifying Event and looks to become “THE” event on the East Coast.
We look forward to working with John in the future on developing and unifying the RC4WD Team. With this renewed focus, we are very excited to see where John takes the team concept in the future.
