Jilles Groskamp confirmed at HB-HPI Racing

Jilles Groskamp confirmed at HB-HPI Racing

Team HB have announced that 2012 IFMAR World Champion Jilles Groskamp will be joining their on-road racing team. The former Tamiya star has been a top competitor on the world stage since the early 2000’s, after beginning his rise up the European rankings in the mid-1990’s. With many wins and podium appearances around the world, Jilles is a master of electric car setup and fast driving, and he’s also been racing nitro on-road at the highest levels for the past few years, including winning the 2013 1/8th Track IC European Champion crown. Jilles had this to say:

I’m extremely happy with the opportunity that HB-HPI Racing has given me to join their team. I would like to thank Tatsuro Watanabe and Hiro Kasuya for making this happen. I have been following Team HB’s nitro and electric car improvements over the last few years and I have no doubt that they have some of the best cars on the market. My goal is to work close together with all the team drivers to improve all the cars even more, and also help customers with their HB rides in the best possible way. I would like to thank Shepherd for their great support over the years and wish them the very best in the future!

Jilles brings with him a wealth of race experience and will be working closely with Andy, Teemu, JJ, Freddy and the entire HB factory and R&D team will help continue to develop and improve HB racing cars for more race wins and championships, not just for themselves but for all HB racers.
