Interview with Karina Hermosillo Articles

For a reason that I can’t really explain, Karina is among my Facebook friends. In the last few months, pictures of a young woman working on a 1/8th scale buggy have caught my attention. Paying a little more attention to her, I quickly noticed that she not only works on R/C cars but she also wins many races. I asked her if she would like to be interviewed and she kindly accepted.
