Comme prévu par le pilote dans une interview en LiveRC Novarossi est heureux d'annoncer l'entrée du pilote associé Ryan Maifield entre Novarossi équipe Pilotes pour off-road. Voici une partie de l'interview que vous pouvez trouver sur LiveRC:
LiveRC: You have had some great success in the past with LRP, O.S., and Reedy...why Novarossi?
Ryan: Yes I have, and I want to thank both companies for the past successes we've had together. I wish both companies luck in the future with there nitro racing programs. I chose Novarossi because the engine line offers everything I need to be successful. A broad range of engines with different power bands and speed, great gas mileage, reliability, and a great team backing.
LiveRC: Will you be playing a part in future engine development?
Ryan: I hope to be a part of future development, but we will see. Novarossi has a great group of people developing their engine program, and I wouldn't want to get in there way. After all they probably won't try to tell me how to drive, so I wont tell them how to make engines. Haha!
