Christopher Krapp joins Tamiya/TRF Factory Team

Christopher Krapp joins Tamiya/TRF Factory Team

Tamiya have announced the signing of German frontrunner Christopher Krapp. The former Kyosho factory driver is a multi-time IFMAR Touring Car Worlds finalist and he will join recently signed Naoto Matsukura and long-term Tamiya/TRF driver and 3-times ISTC World Champion Marc Rheinard. Christopher, who started his career driving a Tamiya, had the following to say about the deal:

First, I would like to thank Team Kyosho for their great support over the last 9 years. They always thrusted in me and we had a good time together. Personally I want to thank Chikuba-San, Mitsuo-San, Kenji-San and Daniel Haas and Frank Lemke. But now it’s time for a change. I am very excited and huge motivated for the next races and challenges. I choosed Tamiya/TRF because they always have the best touring cars on the market and best quality. For me it is like coming home because I began my racing with Tamiya chassis and won the Tamiya World Championship 2007 in Japan. My first race with the Team will be this week at the ETS in Italy and I can’t wait to race and work with my new Team members. A big thanks to Tamiya/TRF for giving me this opportunity and see you at the racetrack.
