Collinson & DEX410 Take NE Regional Title.

Filed under: News — Team Durango UK @ 10:07 am

Hot on the heels of the previous round, Craig Collinson sent us this report on his domination of the Regional at Batley.

The track

The track is multi-surface made up of Astroturf, grass and a cobbled banked corner with a few man made jumps. Given the fact that this track has been there for over 15 years, its taken quite a bit of abuse causing it to rut up badly in certain areas, which results in both the driver and car been tested to the limit.

Race format

At some of the previous rounds in the series it was decided to run 4 rounds of qualifying with 3 finals (best of 2 to count in each). This meeting started a little later than initially planned due to some computer problems, so due to time restraints a decision was made to go with the traditional 4 rounds of qualifying with 1 final (best two rounds of qualifying to count).

Round 1, 2, 3 and 4

Craig dominated qualifying with his DEX410, taking TQ in all four rounds and was well over 10 seconds quicker than 2nd place in each and every round. Watching the car on the track it looked fantastic and clearly quicker than anything else.

With a perfect score of four 1st in round’s this put the DEX410 on pole for the A-main.

DEX410R

Wayne Collinson driving the ‘R’ version for only his 4th meeting also had a great day taking two 2nd in rounds, putting team Durango 1st and 2nd on the grid.

Final

Craig carried his qualifying performance through to the final, getting off to a clean start then pulling away from the chasing pack after Wayne made a small error on the first lap. With an error free final Craig drove to an excellent win finishing over half a lap in front of second place Greg Williams and ended up lapping most of the field. Wayne clawed his way back after making the error on the first lap to come home in 3rd despite driving most of the race with a blown shock, could well have been Durango 1 and 2 if his car was fully intact.

The regional series was held over 5 events with your best 3 of 5 to count. With Craig only attending the last 3 rounds he pulled off a perfect score taking TQ and the win in all three of the rounds, giving Craig and Durango the Regional championship.

More success for Team Durango and another fine display of the DEX410 and DEX410R.
