Komet racing outboard from Italy

Does anyone recall the "Komet" racing outboard from Italy back in the 1960's?

How about the Carniti 2 and 3 cylinder racing motors?

Can anyone direct me to someone who may have pictures of these motors? Magazine articles about them?

There's this site which seems to have a few old pics, including a Carniti racer.

Thank you Jon. I am familiar with that site. It has pictures of the very rare V-4 Carniti. I am looking for the more common inline 2 and 3 cylinder Carniti racers made a few years after the V-4

Carniti

My Uncles used to race Carniti petrol outboards in the mid to late 70's. I Still have three of the original bronze propellers somewhere!
