Isn't r/c his "real job?" I guess 1/8th onroad world championships don't help the bottom line here in the U.S. Sure wish things could be different.

Aren't we all. But, his old feet moved fast enough to avoid the "Gatorade ice pour" at the Nats.

That Bertin prefers to run Picco instead of JP, I can imagine, because last time JP didn't give him the performance he was looking for....
But what happend to the Orion .21 engine?....
End of Orion project?....

At the Euros in Lostallo it was clear that only the Picco based engines were able to make 5 minutes without sacrifycing power.

Collari was only able to win by the slightest margin because he didn't change tires.

Neither Nova nor Sirio engines made time and had less power. I guess that's why he's running Picco.
Cordoba seems to be a power track as well, where fuel consumption will be a big, deciding factor.

And the Lostallo track is not far away from Picco, which gave them a lot of tracktime there to test.... (so I've heard.....)

It is difficult to depend on another factory. JP knows that and Orion/Kyosho now knows that to. The difference between the 2 is that JP is no designer only a tuner and it will be difficult to stay ahead of (in this case) Novarossi.

Fuel consumption is the main issue, with a 10 minutes final you can not have a 2nd fuelstop to reach a direct final place but otherwise the pole on the WC back in 1989 in Holland was a Paris modified (3-port) engine with 2 fuelstops !
