Asia EP Buggy Party Selection Race, Round 3, China

Filed under: News — Team Durango UK @ 2:54 pm

We received this race report from our Chinese partners, Esteed Hobby:

“Due to bad weather, the third round of the selection race was postponed to the last week end of October. The race was held in the brand new Hanzhou Indoor Race Track. This is the third different track in as many rounds for this series, a first in the history of EP buggy racing in China!

The track was a decent sized layout which proved to be fun to race on. The track surface was covered by a very fine dirt, and it become very loose and dusty after a several qualifying rounds. This meant that the lap times dropped more then one second inbetween different legs. It proved to be very important to have a good run for the first qualification round. Without a good first run the track changed so much that the chances of getting a fast run were nearly impossible. However, it was the same for every driver.

The series leader for 4WD, Team Durango China Team Manager John,  missed out on the TQ spot by making mistakes on the first qualification round. Although he remained to be the man to beat all day long, TQ was not to be and this time, it went to another Team Durango China Team Member Luo Yong Sheng driving a DEX410R.

The final clearly saw the advantage of the DEX410 platform when everyone seemed to be running on the moon surface! Being stable yet agile, with explosive acceleration, the DEX410 was the car to beat all day. John Ho managed to clean-up all three legs of the final, all by the margin of one lap, and dominate the final. Luo Yong Sheng continued his good form, and was the only man who actually came close to challenge for the lead. Third place went to a veteran, also driving a Team Durango DEX410R, Nelson Leung, who had just started racing after a long absence. He improved his result from fifth place in the previous race to being third this time round.

The Team Durango DEX410 cleaned-up the rostrum by taking TQ, A1, A2 and A3, congratulations!!

By winning the third race of the series, and on a format of taking the best three out of four, Team Durango China Team Manager John Ho, are crowned as the champion of the series, and will be attending the final race in Thailand next year. Congratulations John!”
