Cesare Rossi (1935 – 2015)

Cesare Rossi (1935 - 2015)

It is with a deep sadness that we announce that one of the RC industry’s pioneers, Cesare Rossi, has passed away today. Founder of Novarossi, he dedicated his entire life to the production and the development of RC engines, his first success dating back to 1959 when he won the airplane World Championship. After starting his own model shop in 1966, he managed the growth of his business that led to the birth of Novarossi in 1984. Having played a major role in the winning of countless World, European and National titles, he established his brand in the market and was honoured with the title of “Cavaliere del Lavoro” by the Italian government in 1999. A leading innovator in the sport some of his creations include the “turbo” glow plug, the offset ball bearing and more recently the shifted carburettor. He is survived by his wife Graziosa, his sons Mario and Sergio and his daughter Elisa. Red RC would like to express our condolences to the Rossi family.
