Jilles Groskamp wins TC Modified at Ride Cup

While Thailand and Bangkok downtown citizens were the middle of the large protests for democracy, in its suburbs there was still RC racing going on. The Huge RC track and its manager Surikarn kept its door open to host the Ride Cup which was organised by Ride founder and proprietor Ohe-san and his staff. It was surely a good test opportunity for the upcoming TITC, and already some of the best racers like Adachi, Groskamp, Hara, Meen, Moore and Surikarn took the chance to sniff the track challenges, with around 100 drivers in various classes enjoying the cool 25°C Winter in Thailand. The track proved have very good traction, and although slightly bumpy at some areas, it was no problem to put the horsepower down to show some impressive top and cornering speeds. Though it was not such surprise to see the 3 Touring Car World Champions taking the top 3 spots, followed by the local hero and TC GP World champ Meen, the current Touring Car World Champ Jilles Groskamp presented himself with a dominant victory for Tamiya. Driving the new updated Tamiya the Team Orion factory team member left Atsushi Hara and Andy Moore behind. Meen V. came in 4th while Shinosuke Adachi completed the top 5 result.
