The MACH Circuit in Heemstede, the Netherlands played host to the seventh biennial IFMAR ISTC World Championships from July 26th-28th. Of course, Tamiya Racing Factory (TRF) was in the thick of the action and when all was said and done, TRF driver Jilles Groskamp and his TRF417V5 was crowned the champion.
Not only was this Tamiya's third consecutive victory at this prestigious event, it also brought its total IFMAR touring car title count to five (2002, 2004, 2008, 2010, 2012).
The TRF417V5 edition kit brings enhancements used during the world championship to customers around the world who choose to race the best touring car platform on the planet.
