The latest driver to announce his departure from the HPI/HB on-road team, Jilles Groskamp has declared the mutual termination of his contract with the Asian company. The news probably ends a series of contract terminations and non-renewals that leaves the company without a factory electric on-road team. Jilles so far remained silent about his racing future and for now he has the following to say:
From today I […] like to announce that I will leave HB/HPI Racing. Both parties have mutual agreed to split after TITC. I would like to thank Tatsuro Watanabe for his support over the last year and I wish him and his company the best for the future. Further thanks goes to all members and old members from HB/HPI Racing. A new opportunaty is waiting for me and soon I will announce my next move in my career.
