Jilles Groskamp confirmed to race NT1

Xray have posted a piece on their site confirming that top Team Xray racer Jilles Groskamp will race the NT1 along with his electric duties. His first race will be at the Winternats at the start of February and this statement was probably issued to remove any doubt over what gas cars he will race having done several important races for Serpent last year.

…and additionally will join the team to support and run the new XRAY NT1 in nitro touring car races. Jilles will debut the NT1, together with the rest of Team XRAY, at the upcoming US Winternationals in Florida.
