With a fourth overall for Ryan and his DNX408T in the Pro Truck class, the weekend of exciting dirt track racing was concluded with a very strong overall performance from the man who is often known as ‘The Lutzinator’.

Team Durango Canada – Quebec Classic

quebecrace001

Hot Temperatures and Hot Racing – Quebec Challenge 2014

Our racing colleagues from Team Durango Canada, managed by distributors Great Hobbies, have recently returned from the fiercely competitive Quebec Challenge.

The team found the race conditions a challenge, with Quebec being baked under extremely hot weather during the action-packed race weekend. Team drivers Yannick, Rene and Dan Leblanc were determined to make a fast impression against a field of local and National racing talent.

quebechigh

Joined by friend and fellow Team Durango fan, Andrew “Butters” Burghgraef from Ottawa, the guys set about tuning their Team Durango DEX408v2, DESC410v2 and Dnx408V2 vehicles for the early qualifying sessions.

The Circuit RC International dirt track was producing very high grip levels due to the scorching temperatures, and the Team Durango racers got quickly into the action with all drivers making great pace, but later qualifiers saw them plagued with electronics issues, largely attributed to the soaring temperatures.

A few fast switches of running gear saw the Team Durango Canada crew settling back into the action. They were happy to finish their qualifying track time with an E-Buggy ‘A’ Main place for the DEX408v2, another ‘A’  position for the DESC410v2 and a solid ninth in the Truggy ‘A’ main for the DEX408T.

yannick

Team mate  Jamie Smitheram had to unfortunately miss day one due to an injury, but was really happy to join his race fellow Team Durango racers for the ‘A’ Main action by placing his DEX408T straight into the top ten.

With Team Durango Canada primed for the action of the events finals schedule, the guys were very happy to see young Yannick take third in 4WD Shourt Course with his DESC410v2. with Jamie taking sixth in his Truggy final piloting the DEX408T and Andrew graciously showing why his race maturity will always produce a strong team ethos, as he moved over in his ‘B’ Main final due to an electronics glitch.

The Quebec Challenge was a real team effort for the Great Hobbies and Team Durango endorsed race team. With some hot track action and blazing weather conditions to contend with, we send our congratulations to the team for a great set of results in difficult conditions.

 The Hall Brothers – Team Durango UK Junior Racers

We thought it would be good to share some really inspirational news with you. Eagle eyed readers will remember that last year we signed up two young UK Short Course racers to our UK junior team. The Hall brothers, Jamie and Tommy, are out and about again this summer, competing at all rounds of the BRCA Short Course National Tour.

Both young racers use the DESC210R Short Course Truck, and have found really pleasing results so far for 2014. Jamie is currently sat in third position on the BRCA Short Course National standings, with Tommy, who is only nine years old, nestling well withing ‘A’ Main pace at sixth place overall.

We should also mention that Jamie, aged 11 years old, is wining the junior series, with his brother Tommy once again backing him up by placing second overall as the season stands currently.

The Hall brothers have a combined age of just 20. They are already proving to be solid and consistent Short Course racers, we are really excited at the thought of these two rising Team Durango stars perhaps taking up the transmitter with a Buggy racing class very soon. They have already enjoyed building their DEX210v2 and DEX410v4 cars. Watch this space for updates on their progress.

Stay tuned as we hope to see Jamie and Tommy finish their BRCA Short Course National season in style very soon.
