Italian engine giants Novarossi have announced that they have formed an agreement with Italy’s distribution powerhouse Schepis Racing for the worldwide distribution of the in-house brand ‘TOP’ – officially called ‘Top Car engines’ – a brand thats not been particularly active in recent years however this seems to be about to change as they’ve also announced the signing of TLR driver Mike Truhe to run the TOP brand engines for the 2013 season.
A move seemed on the cards for Truhe as his car was noticeably not sporting the usual ruby red Orion cooling head at the winter nats last weekend at Revelation Raceway - however it will come as a surprise to many to see the TOP brand resurrected with worldwide selling rights handed over to Schepis.

Not long after announcing a ‘World Championship winning edition engine‘ – Novarossi continue the old tradition of announcing the new season’s lineup at the annual toy fair in Nuremberg, Germany – once upon a time the de facto time and place to announce new products and news.
For 2013 Novarossi have the 4 port Keep Off 21-4 & the 7 port Keep Off 21-7XL
Anyway, the engines – both are fitted with the new lightened & lowered ‘evo 2′ type cooling head whilst the 21-4 comes with a ‘Factory Tuned’ crankshaft and the 21-7XL comes fitted with a new reshaped crankshaft that reduces turbulence inside the crankcase, the front was lengthened as well to improve the seal of the engine. The 21-4′s 4 port make up ensures the best compromise between linear power and minimal fuel consumption – the 21-7XL has a patented port positioning which ensures max performance.
Both engines boast Novarossi’s new rear ball bearing as standard – Novarossi say this leads to, “…reducing the inertia of the rotating mass and increasing the engine’s scavenging – These novelties give an increased throttle response and a higer top speed.”

Robert Batlle kicked off his 2013 season in much the same way he finished 2012 – by winning a race, this time however it wasn’t a World Championship on the wire, but rather the smaller Trofeo Novarossi – the annual race was hosted on the Italian island of Sicily (who will host the 2014 Worlds). Qualifying witnessed engine specialist Adam Drake come out on top with Batlle 2nd and Novarossi newcomer Davide Tortorici 3rd.
The 30 min final saw frontrunner Adam Drake lose position and heaps of time only on lap 3, as he dropped back from the lead to 6th, this allowed Batlle to slot into a groove that would prove too much for the others, Tortorici assumed 2nd only to fall back himself, this promoted Federico Sala into 2nd some way back from the leader but with Drake returning to the track he climbed his way back into the runner up spot demoting Sala to a strong 3rd nonetheless.

The driver moves are becoming to filter through after a sluggish start to 2013, news this morning that two-time European Champion Davide Tortorici looks likely to be running for the recently crowned World Championship engine manufacturer Novarossi for the 2013 season, according to sources Tortorici has joined fellow Novarossi drivers Adam Drake & Robert Batlle in Sicily, attending the Novarossi cup race.
The move marks the return of Novarossi power in Tortorici’s car, the last time back in 2004 during the Crono days – winning his first European Championship with the Italian marque as well as making an appearance in that year’s IFMAR Worlds final in Sweden. Tortorici would go on to run Japanese OS power from 2005-2009, then onto Sirio 2010-2011 and finally spending a pretty strong season with the Schepis-backed Picco-made engine ‘Bliss’.
