Team Durango Japan – Tresrey support driver audition

Filed under: News — Team Durango UK @ 1:30 pm

Team Durango’s Japanese distributor Tresrey sent us this report from their support driver audition race held last weekend at the TRS circuit.

TRESREY 2010 OFF-ROAD RACE ROUND-1 (Team Durango Support Driver Audition) was held on January 24, 2010 at TRS circuit, Matsusaka-city, Mie pref.

47 racers joined the race making it the best-attended race that the TRS circuit ever had for an off-road event. 37 cars raced in the 2WD class and 38 cars raced in the 4WD class, including 10 DEX410s.

Takashi Nobuhara got TQ and best lap for both 2WD and 4WD classes.

In 2WD class, Takashi Nobuhara won the race by pole-to-finish, Akihiro Yasuda as 2nd with Hideki Nakajima 3rd. Team Durango/Speed Passion Japan team driver Minoru Utsugi was 8th in qualifying and finished 10th in the final.

There were 10 DEX410s in 4WD class, and 3 of them made the final A-main.  Kyoji Minagawa, started from 2nd position, and eventually won the race ahead of Akihiro Yasuda, with Shinichi Kurotani in 3rd with his DEX410. (Minoru Utsugi finished 6th and Echigoya finished 7th, both driving DEX 410’s).

Unfortunately, none of the drivers were chosen as “Team Durango Support Driver” this time, because no-one qualified within the target time. However, Tresrey have decided to choose a kind of “Local support driver” soon. The details will be posted on the Tresrey web site shortly.

Thanks to the warm support from everybody who attended the race. Even though it was the first time Tresrey had organised an off-road race, everything went perfectly and everyone had a great time.

After the award ceremony, Tresrey held a “Big Draw”; prizes included a DEX410 kit and Speed Passion ESCs.
