Team Durango @ 2011 IFMAR Worlds Warmup

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 1:59 pm

The 10th off road IFMAR Worlds warmup event in Vaasa, Finland took place this past weekend – 21st & 22nd May 2011.  With the previous IFMAR Worlds being poorly attended the attendance at the warmup for this years event was impressive with a host of the worlds top talent putting in the laps.

The track was little changed from the one seen at the 2007 EFRA European Championships, held at the same venue.  A flat dirt track with carpet-covered features to help them survive the Finnish weather.

In the 4WD class, Team Durango placed the highest number of cars of any manufacturer into the A-Main,  with a total of 4 DEX410 cars.  Top of the pile in qualifying for Team Durango was Hupo Honigl – who took the EFRA title in 2007 on this track.  Jorn Neumann placed just behind Hupo in 6th, with local star Ari Heinonen 8th and long-time Team Durango fan Joseph Quagraine in 9th.  JQ raced the prototype Durango car in 2007 at this same track and his electric off road form has improved even more with the DEX410 – his impressive qualifying and best score of 4th in round gave the Finnish hero some electric respect  JQ was using a car borrowed from Gerd Strenge.

In the 3-leg A finals it was Jorn Neumann who put in the best result for Team Durango with a 4th overall – just missing out on the podium.  Hupo finished 6th, JQ 7th and Ari 9th.

The whole Team Durango team worked well together, TD designer & team manager Adam Skelding went over to race and help the team get dialled in.  The guys were able to find a very good, easy to drive setup which we’ve posted in the online database.
