Default Elliott Boots departs Novarossi

Just when you think you’ve heard most of the new season’s driver signings, along comes a twist to spice things up as we head towards the typically quiet RC period of mid-January – not so with the breaking news that IFMAR Worlds top qualifier and crowd pleaser Elliott Boots will not be racing Novarossi in 2014!

“We’d like to say a massive thank you for the help and support from Novarossi for the past few years, we’ve had some fantastic results together and wish them all the best in the future, looking ahead we can’t wait to hit the track again at Padova with a new motor!” – Elliott Boots

The news is sure to send industry-wide shockwaves – alongside World Champion Robert Batlle, Boots was one of Novarossi’s bankable headline stars. The potency Boots demonstrated when powered by Novarossi was at times awe-inspiring, however his switch a year ago from AKA tyres to rivals Pro-Line proved successful, winning Neo13’s ‘Vampire Racing’ electric class and coming the closest anyone has in history to Jared Tebo, finishing a very strong 2nd.

At the end of the day the Reds has a lot more power than the Nova btt/keepoff, and Boots is a very aggressive driver who's always flooring it, so I can see why it makes sense for him to change over to a more powerful engine.

Where did you get your information that REDS are more powerful than Novarossi? Also, since when does power equal winning?

I've had both and yes.. the Reds has a lot more power. Power is not always better. I do love how smooth the nova feels but lacks top end compared to the reds.
