Default adam drake to run GRP engines

hey all:here's some interesting news i found on redrc.
"Losi have announced that 2007 ROAR National Champion Adam Drake will campaign Mario Rossi Tuned engines from GRP through to 2010. Drake joins Losi factory drivers Mike Truhe and Yannick Aigoin who have previously announced their commitment to running GRP Engines. With the addition of Drake to the GRP lineup, the potential of a Losi/GRP 1-2-3 finish at the IFMAR 1/8th World’s is now stronger than ever." Does this meen drake is no longer with trinity or still with them,but running GRP engine?Thanks for the info

Those brands are distributed in the US by Horizon Hobby. GRP, Team Losi, & Team Associated. The Ninja is no longer GRP made, so they are all sourced from one company. Also, Mario Rossi tuned engines are different from the regular GRP engines.

That is indeed the new word. I told my local shop that GRP was picked up by a different dist. for '08 (though I didn't know it was Horizon) and he looked at me like I was carzy. I too wonder what Trinity thought of Drake running GRP motors?

I think Adam has left trinity after all these years of running for them. He will also now be running Losi Nitrotane fuel along witht he GRP motors.
