Default Drake to Novarossi????

look at : novarossiusa.com or buggysport.info

Could be the Drake? What do you think?

Look at the picture and remember the GRP problems.....

There are a lot of rumors here in europe, that they have big financial problems.

Yup looks like Drake's paint in that pic. And the backwards hat. He always wears his like that so I would not be surprised if it was him. Without Mario not too sure what future GRP has in the engine department.
