The 7th IFMAR ISTC World Championship took place in Heemstede, the Netherlands in July 2012 and TRF driver Jilles Groskamp achieved a historic victory for Tamiya with his TRF417X. Not only was this Tamiyas third consecutive victory at this prestigious event, it also brought Tamiyas total IFMAR touring car title count to five (2002, 2004, 2008, 2010, 2012). Jilles’ TRF417X featured various prototype parts that were created specifically with this race in mind, and they combined with his driving skill to bring home the win. Tamiya has made this championship-winning machine available to you as the TRF417WX Chassis Kit.
