As with many companies Elcon Models started all as a hobby. In October 2003 Elcon was official founded and a start was made realising a dream: production of our own car.
This dream was realised early 2008 the Elcon Cleon saw daylight. The Cleon 2008 proved to be a successful car in many races, With winning the races at Salou as a highlight, The follow up was shown 2 years after: Cleon MMX. The successes with the MMX are numerous and almost impossible to count anymore, But the absolute maximum achievement was made when Kay Koops won the European Championship 2011 with a mile distance on all other competitors. The first 4 places were all Cleon MMX with 6 MMX cars in the main final.
In 2013 another car saw daylight: the IMP4CT 4WD race buggy. In 2014 the European title was conquered again, but now in both classes 2WD & 4WD Absolutely a maximum result possible. 2wd Tim Van Derelst taking the win followed by Ken Walckiers And 4wd Saw Patrick Schweinzer take the win with the Impact..
In 2015 the MMX conquered another European title in Ferhing Patrick Schweinzer at his home Track. 2016 saw the Two Hofmann brothers made it a special victory at the Euros taking place 1+2 in 2wd with the MMX.
Even though the results are speaking for itself a new 2WD race car saw daylight after 2 years of development and is called TRAXX.The decision to continue and bring a new car even though the results of the MMX are tremendous find its base in the philosophy within Elcon that only development can bring you forward to the next level. Ken Walckiers dominated with the Traxx at Nene Valley 2017 Euros in the UK setting a new level for the 2wd class.
At Ferhing the team then dominated the 2wd A main final taking All 3 of the top 3 podium places with Martin Kraus taking the Win with Petr 2nd place and Mike 3rd place.
2019 Euros 2wd Rodger Kouse took the win and was followed by Daniel Koch 2nd place and brother Sasha Kouse 3rd place in Bulgaria.
