Press releases from XRAY:
Jan Bohlen joins XRAY
XRAY is excited to announce that Jan Bohlen has joined the XRAY factory team to race the 1/10 electric on-road classes with X1 & T4. Jan will race all the German races as well as international events such as ETS.
- Multiple A-Mains in Formula Class at ETS
I have been testing different RC cars from well-known brands for German RC magazines and websites and I've always been aware of the outstanding quality of XRAY parts and great designs of XRAY RC cars. I finally decided to drive XRAY 2 years ago when I entered the new and rising formula class. With X1 and T4 I have been really satisfied, both with the performance at the track and with the smartness at pits. Thanks to that I was able to achieve several great results including multiple ETS A-Mains and 2 times top ten overall results. I'm very happy to get the opportunity to work closely with Team XRAY and I'm curious about the upcoming season.
Mattia Collina joins XRAY
XRAY is proud to announce that Italian Champion Mattia Collina has joined the factory XRAY team and will race with the T4 in the 2017 season. Mattia is a young talented driver who has shown excellent results and permanent growth within the last years and has been the main driving force of XRAY team in Italy. Mattia will participate in all major national and international races.

I am very happy and honoured to be part of the factory XRAY team for the next seasons. The teamwork & constantly development is for me the best on the market as well as the car in terms of material and performance. In the XRAY team I have found real friends and teammates that are always ready to help and to have fun. I hope to continue with collecting great results nationally and internationally as it has been happenning in the last seasons.
Bálint Rajki joins XRAY
XRAY is happy to welcome Hungarian Champion Balint Rajki in the XRAY team. Balint will race and focus primarily on the 1/10 formula & touring car races with the XRAY T4 & X1. Balint will join the factory team at all the major electric touring events including the ETS.
I’m very happy to announce and also feel honoured to be able to join the XRAY factory team. I have been following the formula project since the beginning and I truly believe that the X1 car is the best car at the moment so far and I’m sure it will remain the same. Besides the X1 I will also race T4 cars in our National Championship, ETS and some XRS races. I had been basically racing the past 10 years with one brand, but now I feel that this is the right brand to join with having all the different cars I had raced before and also planning to race in the future. I would like to thank Jan Ratheisky and the Hudy family for the opportunity, I will do my best. I also would like to say Thank You to Modell & Hobby and Arpad Kocsis for supporting me with cars over the past years.”
