Esteban Palacio

Date of Birth? July 19th, 1989

Where do you live? Bogota, Colombia

Where were you born?  Medellin, Colombia

What is one surprising fact people may not know about you? There was a time when I was younger that I didn’t like R/C cars at all. I loved R/C planes and helis but when I raced for the first time, everything changed.

What got you started in R/C? My dad, when I was about 4 years old, he bought me my first R/C car (the ones you usually buy at Toys R’ Us), but it was until 5 years ago when we both walked into a store and got out with a brand new Nitro Tamiya TNX.

Why do you race? It’s fun and different from the daily routine. It’s amazing to have a good time with friends and family through R/C cars.

What would you like see happen to R/C in the coming years? I’d like to see the big races such as Nationals and Worlds shown live on TV.
