HPI Racing Gets Another Chance | CompetitionX

HPI Racing is Still Kicking | CompetitionX

It’s not secret that HPI has been having some issues lately. The UK branch has been losing people left and right and the US finger of the company has been all but dissolved.

Quite the shame as HPI was once a household name in RC – heck, I remember competitively racing (with MUCH success) the Pro 2 and Pro 3 touring cars!

However, there might be light once again at the end of the tunnel. HPI has released this official announcement:

“HPI Racing is delighted to announce a development that will see a change of ownership of its global operation. The major shareholders of the Scandinavian based Vestergaard Group have signed a deal that will see them utilise their 50+ years expertise and investment in the hobby industry to revitalise HPI Racing, capitalise on its great heritage and push the brand forward.

Speaking from Vestergaard Group’s Danish HQ, the new owners announced a new era for HPI Racing with a stable supply chain and excellent customer service.

“We are looking very much forward to rebuilding the HPI Racing and Maverick brands together with you. The brands will be putting existing customer’s needs first. Every HPI Racing product owner around the world has made an investment in HPI Racing. It’s important we remember that and do all we can to ensure they have years of enjoyment from it. We can assure you that there is a bright and sustainable future planned for HPI Racing, with both innovation and parts supply at the core”.

More information will follow soon!”

Let’s hope this time everything works out and the company survives. I’d really hate to see such a great brand (one with many memories) disappear.
