Jilles Groskamp joins Team Shepherd

Jilles Groskamp joins Team Shepherd

Shepherd have announced that European Electric touring car driver Jilles Groskamp will use Shepherd Micro Racing cars for nitro racing, racing both classes, 1/10th scale and 1/8th scale. With his experience as a professional driver he will help the German company to improve their existing products and developing new products. Jilles had the following to say:

After looking to many teams and many people, Shepherd stood out as a small team which works really hard to improve things. They are still some kind of a “newcomer” in the nitro scene but the Velox V8 is already established all over the world. I could already test it and I was really impressed. Probably the V10 project will be even more fun for myself as I feel better with a 1/10 touring car. With all the fast improvements they can realize I can test a lot of different things and get ready for the big races. I’m really looking forward to work together with them and I hope my feedback helps in creating great products.
