2009 Race Season Ends. - 2009-11-10
Even with the financial downturn on 2009, it still turned out to be a great racing year for many of our customers.
Congratulations to Andre Van Koeveringe for his fantastic effort in Div. 2 of the Coppa Mille. Andre attended all but two of the scheduled events. Under the scoring rules you are allowed to discard your worst two finishes, so this meant that Andre could use all of the points accrued at the other events. This put him at the top of Division 2 and provided him with the Champions Trophy in that Division.
Scuderia Topolino has been pleased to work with Andre developing various components for his car. During 2009 he used many Scuderia Topolino components. This included engine and suspension parts. He was one of the first to install the "tubolare" rear suspension. At the end of the season he was logging better lap times at all of the races he attended.
Plans are already underway for 2010, as Andre is preparing a new engine with more horsepower that will ulitize Scuderia Topolino's "featherweight" valve train components and employ our pre-lapped pistons rings and cylinder treatments. These developments significantly reduce internal friction and parasitic losses. Now that the car handles well, the hope is that he will be better able to utilize the planned horsepower increase.
Again, congratulations from Scuderia Topolino.
