Gigglepin Racing Takes the Title

October 27th2023

Our friends at Gigglepin Racing recently shared a race recap and a few photos we know you’d love to see. It was a crazy tough year of 4400 Ultra4 Europe racing, and driver Jim Marsden has the sweat and a few more grey hairs to prove it. In the end, though, their consistency and never-give-up attitude guided them to another 1st-place series championship! With their brand new Miller Motorsports Spider 9 Powered Ultra4 racer, well dialed in and proven to win, next year’s series will be another one to watch.

With that, please enjoy the race recap and photos straight from Team Gigglepin.

Gigglepin Race Season Recap

October 29th2022

Jim Marsden & his Team Gigglepin wrapped up the Ultra4 Europe season, and while things didn’t go “exactly” as planned, the team still managed to pull off a 2nd place season finish. Jim and his new Ultra4 racer Mistress are rocking our soon-to-be-released Pro Series U-Joints & Knuckles, and we’re happy to say this is one of the new parts he didn’t have to worry about this year. All season long, he pushed his new racer to the limits, and these new Pro Series U-Joints & Knuckles worked without a single complaint and required not a single amount of maintenance. Always nice to see and hear!

With that, enjoy Team Gigglepin’s race report below, or you may download the combined PDF here.

Gigglepin Hits the Top Step

August 23rd2022

The following is a race report straight from Jim Marsden of Team Gigglepin. Enjoy!

Wales is an amazing country, a few weeks ago we raced in raging storms at King of Britain.
Then a few weeks later we race at TORR with over 30 degree heat for all three days, simply incredible! But the best news is attached in our race report. So grab a coffee and dive right in!

There’s a number of perks that come from attending Ultra4 races around the globe. Witnessing Spider 9 world domination in-person is one of them, that’s obvious, but beyond proving our products is a chance to meet some of the most amazing people on this planet. One of the most talented off-road journalists I’ve ever run across is Robb Pritchard, who runs Off-Road The Planet while also working with the folks over at Mad Media. Like many great minds, Robb takes a bit to warm up to, but once you do you’ll easily see why his work is way above the crowd.

Robb and I finally had a chance to “sit down” and talk a little about what we do here at Spidertrax, among other off-road related items. He recently published this interview HERE, and I think it’s well worth the read. Be sure to check that out, and don’t forget to subscribe to Off-Road The Planet while you’re there. Following travels through the eyes of Robb is nothing short of an amazing adventure.

With that, back to work we go.
