Shepherd reports… After some small and funny discussions on the web we are happy to announce that 2012 1:10 EC World Champion Jilles Groskamp returns to our Factory Racing Team for the upcoming nitro on-road.
Jilles is going to race 1/10th scale and 1/8th and will attend both European Championship as well as the World Championship 1/8th scale in Japan in Octobre. With his experience and his professional engagement he will be an important part of the team to improve our current products and test future developments. We are looking forward to working together with this World Class racer.
Jilles had the following to say:
“I’m very excited and happy to be back on board with Shepherd for the 2013 season. This year I will be racing both 1/8 and 1/10 including the Worlds in Japan for the 1/8. I would like to thank Patrick and the rest of the crew who wanted to give me this opportunity again. See you at the track soon!”
