Maifield switches from Novarossi to Team Orion for 2015

It turns out the rumours floating around the paddock in Sicily were true with new TLR signing Ryan Maifield making the switch from Novarossi to Team Orion’s nitro factory team. The US driver, who started from pole position and lead last Saturday’s main final until a steering servo took him out of contention, joined their electric section earlier this year and will now also be using all Team Orion CRF nitro products in his cars from January 1st 2015. CRF team manager Adrien Bertin commented on Ryan’s decision as follows: “Drivers of the caliber of Ryan Mayfield have their choice of engines to run. It is with great satisfaction that we welcome Ryan in our team and admire his decision to run with Team Orion CRF engines. It is another confirmation of our successful product and team strategy.”
