Team Durango take 1st, 2nd and 3rd Overall @ Austrian Nationals

Filed under: News — Team Durango UK @ 12:32 pm

Martin Kriel sent us this report from Durango-Land Austria.

Last weekend the 5th and final round of the Austrian nationals were held in Steyregg. The track is mainly clay with some carpeted 1/8th scale size jumps.

Hupo Honigl who had already won both the 2wd Championship with the prototype DEX210 and the 4wd Championship with the DEX410 was not attending the event, he was taking a well earned break away from the R/C scene in Vegas.


My car felt very good during the practice, but I felt it could be improved upon with some fine tuning. I needed a little more smoothness under power so I thinned the rear diff oil. The car now felt much better and I was then able to ‘dial-in’ the shocks as the surface became more bumpy, by softening off the damping all round.

In the first round of qualifying my car was awesome and I took TQ in the round with a clean run. Rene Trauner closely follwed me home also driving a Durango.

The 2nd round of qualifying was held on Sunday morning, this round was won by Roland Macho with his DEX410, with myself  in 2nd and Peter Wirthner in 3rd.

In Round 3, I took TQ from Hauleitner & Macho.

Rene Trauner took round 4 making it a clean sweep for Durango’s in qualifying with each round going to a DEX410. 2nd was  Macho and 3rd Prihoda, both driving the Durango chassis.

Overall qualifying had me on the TQ spot followed by Macho and Trauner. 4 other Durango’s made the A-main, making a total of  7 DEX410’s in the main event.

Finals: Rene Trauner won the first 2 finals and therfore took 1st overall at the meeting,  I won the 3rd final in front of Marcus Prihoda. So the overall result was:

1.    Rene Trauner

2.    Martin Kreil

3.    Marcus Prihoda

All 3 were driving a Durango! Other Durango drivers:

4. Macho Roland

7. Gerd Pazout

8. Thomas Holicky

10. Philipp Stocker.


Sven Rudig won the B final.

The Austrian outdoor season is now over and the overall series result finished like this:

1.    Hupo Honigl     DEX410

2.    Rene Trauner   DEX410

3.    Martin Kreil      DEX410

4.    Roland Macho DEX410

5.    Marcus Prihoda DEX410


Well done from all @ Team Durango to the drivers in Durango-land (Austria)
