Team boss Patrick Schäfer had the following to say:
“With his professional behaviour and uncompromising attention to detail Jilles is one of our most important drivers. His feedback and ideas help us improving our products even more and also at the track he is a great help for the team” – Patrick Schäfer
Jilles commented with:
“I would like to thank Patrick and the rest of the Shepherd crew for giving me this opportunity for already my fourth year with Shepherd. Last year we had some great results by winning the 1/8 Euros, TQ at the 1/10 Euros and of course some great show at the 1/8 Worlds! In the meantime some further developments are in progress and I can’t wait to test and drive both 1/10 and 1/8 for upcoming season. See you soon on the track!” – Jilles Groskamp
