A few months ago there was some news about the loss of a few of our distributors. People started talking. Was this the end? Would the non-believers be proven right? Not gonna happen! Because following the increased demand for THE White Edition, we now have new distributors and dealers in Austria, Denmark, Germany, France, Sweden, Latvia and Italy. This brings up our total distributor count, and as such JQ Products is now available in 32 countries. Detailed info can be found below. BOOM!

JQ is back from his first ever Australia trip, where he attended the Naracoorte South Australian Tri Series Finale. The track was super loose and dusty, and got really bumpy for the mains. Qualifying was 4/6 rounds, and it was a very close affair with JQ TQ:ing before Andrew Foord. Almost every round was decided by about 1 second. The finals were interesting, with two 20 minute mains being run. The first one went to Foord, after JQ ran out of fuel while leading, on the last lap (deja vu anyone?). The second main then went to JQ, with Foord finishing 2nd. Tied in points, the tie-breaker went to JQ for the overall win! This was the 4th JQ Asia Tour event, and once again, rather incredibly, all White Editions made the A main. This time there were three, JQ, Nathan Separovich and Ashleigh Frensham. As for the Yellow Editions, there were two in the B main! Great performance!

JQ Products Driver Patrix Hutasoit TQs and Wins Rd 6 of the North Sumatra Regional Race on MRCC Track, securing the overall win of the series driving THE car White Edition! Here is a report from Patrix:
On Sunday Dec 8th 2013 we had the Rd 6 Regional Race on MRCC Track in Medan, Indonesia. 35 drivers competing in the 6 race series of 2013 regional championship. After 5 rounds, there were only 4 drivers (Asang, Edy St, Patrix, Hari) who still have a chance to win the regionals. I had to TQ and win this last round race to win, and wonderfully I did just that :) I secured the TQ spot after winning 2 of 3 qualifying rounds. Asang who lead the championship table before this last race also was very fast and TQ the last round of qualifying. Come the A main finals, I had a terrible start after the second small double jump and was last before half of the 1st lap. I managed to climb my way back to the front of the pack, I got lucky that some of the drivers also made mistakes and was back in 1st after just under 10 mins of the 45 minutes race. From that point on I just drove calmly and not pushing hard remembering that I have to win this race to win the whole series. I finished 1st and Asang 2nd on the same lap and Edy St took 3rd. Car and engine was very very good. I can drive the White Edition clean and fast without even trying. My Alpha Ryan Worlds Edition also ran flawlessly the whole race. Lovin the experience! Final Results are:
1st. Patrix Hutasoit JQ THE car White Edition/Alpha/Beta 2nd. Asang Mugen/Reds/Beta 3rd. Edy St Sworkz/S Power/AKA
Finally the wait is over! THE White Edition has shipped world wide, so yes, you will be able to get one before Christmas! However, we have some good/bad news, depending on how you look at it. The demand for the WE was overwhelming, and we actually sold out. So much so, that all distributors were not even able to get kits! This means, that if you want to be sure to get a kit before the next batch will be available late January, ACT FAST! I am sure all distributors and dealers with kits will start promoting them shortly! Watch this space, for a full review and release in text form, as well as a set up guide, specifically written for THE White Edition. For 2014 we are leaving no stone unturned.
As for parts, do not worry, spare parts are available, and have been ordered by distributors. And if you are wondering "What White Edition?" Please check the videos below!
With Rayan Medjoubi contracted with JQ Products until the end of 2016, it is no news that he is continuing to run THECar. But what is news, is the fact that Rayan has now also been picked up by JQ team sponsors AKA and REDS for his tyres and engines. Rayan has already been testing with his new equipment as is very excited for the upcoming racing season! Good luck Rayan!
