Robert Batlle reports after his recent victory at the annual Trofeo Novarossi race… This past weekend the annual Trofeo Novarossi took place on their own fantastic track in Gussago, Italy. We arrived on Friday morning to visit the Novarossi Factory as every year, amazing factory for one of the best engine manufacturers in the world. The weather on Thursday was terrible and we had to wait until Friday afternoon to start practice. As a result we could make only 4 or 5 tanks due to the lack of time. However luckily Saturday was sunny and racing started without any problems!

Novarossi have appointed Racing Experience as their new exclusive distributor for the Netherlands. In order to offer the best availability and presence of Novarossi products in the Benelux region, Racing Experience is now the new exclusive distributor for Belgium, Luxembourg and Holland.
Racing Experience already distributes Novarossi products for the French and UK markets with great success. Racing Experience will be working closley with Dutch company Vector RC – acting as sales support.
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.”
Novarossi have announced the release of the new Plus 21-4BTT ‘World Champion’ edition engine – celebrating their Worlds victory with Robert Batlle in Argentina at the end of last year. Details are sparse but the 4 port engine features front and rear ceramic ball bearings as well as a ‘Factory Tuned’ modified crankshaft which is said to improve the power output and driveability of the engine. Expect the engine to be released shortly.
