On this version of the JConcepts Friday5 we discuss to Georgia workforce driver, Patrick Rossiter Jr.!

1. If you first acquired into RC racing, what professional driver did you look as much as and why? Or perhaps there was a neighborhood/regional driver that you simply adopted?

I’ve at all times been a fan of Masami Hirosaka. He’s been in RC virtually his complete life, similar to I’ve. He’s completed a lot in his profession with a number of totally different genres of the pastime. Even in the present day, regardless of his “retirement”, he can nonetheless wheel if given the chance. So far as a regional driver at the moment, I admired Adam Drake. He lived with us on weekends after I was youthful and truly babysat me. He’s been like my older brother. He’s gone on to perform many issues as effectively and really established himself within the RC world on so many various avenues. Not too point out attaining the final word purpose: having a spouse who enjoys the identical pastime and is simply pretty much as good at it.

2. For this 12 months, what races are you wanting ahead to attending and why? They are often native, regional, nationwide, and so forth?

I at all times take pleasure in my adventures with Lance MacDonald. Being not solely a participant of the Florida RC Championships, however a crew member as effectively has given me extra of a function inside the pastime. He’s really been an important pal and enterprise associate. I’m additionally wanting ahead to the remaining RaceTime Entertainment occasions this 12 months and the ROAR 1/10 Off-Highway Nationals, which is being hosted in my dwelling state.

3. Since you might be an avid racer and likewise spend a while within the race director’s sales space, you could have seen how a race program is run each from views. So in your opinion, what must be carried out to extend participation in RC racing on the native membership degree?

The most important factor folks want to recollect is to have enjoyable. That’s the entire cause why all of us began doing this. I personally consider that being sponsored and being aggressive can add stress to the purpose the place it may well take away the enjoyment. As a racer, you need to keep in mind that ultimately, we’re all simply enjoying with toy automobiles and spending time with our buddies. I at all times inform up and coming Novice racers, “For those who’re not having enjoyable, you’re not driving your automobile proper.” From a race director’s view, it’s best to at all times preserve your program recent. Department out from the established order once in a while and add some selection to your program. For instance, as a substitute of qualifiers and Mains, strive a Heads Up type race with longer run instances. Preserve issues attention-grabbing and present encouragement and reassurance to racers who deserve it. When respect is earned, loyalty will likely be returned.

4. Which JConcepts product, in your opinion, is a must have on race day when going to the observe and why?

I’m adamant about being organized! I can’t stand litter and issues being combined up. One of the helpful and aesthetically pleasing JC objects I’ve is the Finish Line Charger Bag. Whether or not I’m racing 1/8 or 1/10, nitro or electrical, my charger, energy provide, batteries, and cables are all collectively and I do know precisely the place they’re.

5. You’re clearly extremely expert with regards to RC automobiles, however what’s one talent or hidden expertise that folk is perhaps shocked to search out out about you?

Nicely first off you flatter me, lol. I don’t have an ego so this is perhaps a bit robust to reply. Exterior of RC, I’ve at all times loved standup comedy and improv (pondering eventualities up on the spot). Robin Williams is my idol and his fast fireplace pondering and improv has simply blown me away and at all times acquired me out of a droop. So I’d wish to suppose I’m good at making folks snigger typically.
