The 4th round of LESTR CUP indoor off road series took place in Odolena Voda on the 14th of January. The organizers prepared quite a demanding off-road track to test the drivers.
Right from the start of practice it was clear that the race was going to be a TEAM DURANGO day. Both of Charlie´s cars were working very well and Charlie managed to take all the qualifiers with both cars and set best laps in both categories. So Charlie took TQ for DEX410 in 4WD and for DEX210 in 2WD as well.
Things went the same way in the finals also – with Charlies DEX210 taking the opening two legs of the A Final to secure the victory. Charlie didn’t run the third leg to allow the other drivers to fight for second position overall.
In 4WD Charlie was leading the first final head but a mistake came and after a heavy crash to the steel barrier, the ball joint gone out. Thanks to the robust construction of DEX 410 nothing else was damaged and after fixing the joint back / which cost him a lot of time / he continued. After a great performance of the DEX410, he finished second behind Marcel Dostal with another DEX410. After the poor start to the 4WD finals, Charlie didn’t make the same mistake again – and he took the next two legs to secure the victory with his DEX410. Marcel Dostal was second with DEX410.
In the end Charlie had set TQ and taken the win, along with having the fastest laps all weekend with both cars – Team Durango & Charlie Novotny domination!
Charlie would like to thank to all at Team Durango for producing such a great cars as we had another fantastic day. Both cars performed great all the day and the only think, I had to do, was to clean the dust from the carpet and charge the batteries.
