Following his very successful outing in the Dillard Financial Solutions, Inc sponsored DAC at the last round of the UIM F2 World Championship, Stefan Hagin has now been signed up to race for the team in the 2020 NGK F1 Powerboat Championship Series. The German racer, who won the Tonsberg round of the UIM F2 World Championship back in August, said: I am extremely happy to get another chance to race with Dillard Financial Solutions Inc.
