Team Durango Winter Race Series – 2010

Filed under: News — Team Durango UK @ 2:24 pm
Team Durango Winter Series 2010

Team Durango are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our inaugural indoor, off-road winter race series at the Ardent Raceway, Donington, England.

Ardent Raceway are already one of the UKs premier indoor on-road racing venues.  The facilities and professionalism of the staff are excellent, which is why Team Durango have chosen the venue for our first ever off-road series.  Ardent Raceway have also been chosen as the hosts for next year’s prestigious PetitRC race on the 15th and 16th January, which will see many World-class drivers competing in an always well attended, high-class, event.

The dates for the Team Durango Winter series:

Round 1 – October 31st 2010

Round 2 – November 28th 2010

Round 3 – December 19th 2010

Round 4 – February 27th 2011

Round 5 – March 20th 2011

(The best three rounds will count towards the Title. Each round will consist of three qualifying rounds and three finals, with the best two finals added together to determine overall positions.)

For each of the five rounds the Ardent Raceway team will be converting the Raceway into a 480sq.mtr off-road multi-surface buggy track. They will paint a track layout on the wooden floor and mix-in grit to give a bit of grip in areas, then lay a combination of astroturf and carpet with smooth wooden jumps to simulate jumps seen on outdoor tracks, which means four different types of surface on one track. This will be a real test of drivers’ skill.

The track will be available from 14:00 on the Saturday before each round for practice and will cost £5 for four hours, and the track will remain open until 22:00.

Who is racing?

Adam Skelding (UK Team Manager for Team Durango), Nathan Waters (Winner of the 4WD 2010 oOple Invernational) and other Team Durango UK drivers will be racing at this series. They will all be available to help and answer any set-up questions you may have about your Team Durango DEX410 or DEX410R.
