Two of the nicest guys you’ll find in the Ultra4 European circuit right here. I first met up with driver Walter Philippo and co-driver Tom Ramaekers at King of the Glens. In Walter’s Spider 9 powered Jesse Haines built Ultra4 racer, the course of the Glens swallowed him up like many others, his beautifully crafted machine was not made for such terrain. Then came King of the Mountains. Running their own race, focused more on just finishing rather than placing, when the dust finally settled Walter & Tom grabbed themselves a 5th place finish. They looked great out there, lap after lap, and managed to run the entire weekend with zero issue. Watch out for these guys in the next two European races, the right attitude and the right parts will get you far in Ultra4. Congrats on the finish guys!
