20-years of Touring Car bodyshell evolution by Jilles Groskamp – Video

World Champion Electric Touring Car ace Jilles Groskamp has wrapped up 2022 with an interesting video showing the evolution of the electric touring car body shell over the last 20-years.   Having gathered together of his old race bodies, which have been in storage in his father Frank’s house, the collection includes many that we here at Red RC have had the pleasure of photographing in the heat of battle.  Most notable of these are his 2009 European winning Protoform Speed 6 and his 2012 World Championship winning Protoform LTC-R.  Interestingly, the factory Infinity driver concludes the video on the topic of how the so called ‘Touring Car bodyshell’ no longer has any resemblance to an actual touring car and adds he hopes the rules will be adapted to try bring them back to resembling the real thing in the future.  Another interesting point is how the bodyshell is now almost half the weight of that of two decades ago.
