Remarks – Infinity team driver and Bangkok resident Jilles Groskamp is using the Infinity SMJ Prototype to take the first 3 qualifiers here at the TITC. Using the same car he received at the Sunpadow GP in China late last year he has since worked on making the car lighter so that he can better strategically place weight. Since testing for the TITC began he has tried both different flex top decks as well as an aluminium chassis but has reverted back to the configuration he used to win the Ride Cup some weeks ago. Deciding to stick with a carbon chassis while others have gone for aluminium he believes it to have a wider range of traction for the changing conditions while the metal version only really suits the higher traction.
