Team Durango – 24 Hour endurance @ YORCC

York Off Road Car Club held the third ‘EBOR 24’ – 24 hour endurance race this past weekend. The race ran from 2pm Saturday until 2pm Sunday and saw a total of 7 teams take part.

track Just two teams chose to run 2WD cars, and whilst the 2WD cars had less moving parts to go wrong there was no doubting the fact that 4WD cars had a distinct advantage on the slippery York club’s indoor surface – with 5 of the 7 teams choosing the 4WD route.

Team Rossendale Models / Durango were running the 2WD Team Durango DEX210 buggy, with Nosram ESC and Speedpassion 8.5 motor. The car was virtually box-stock, with no changes to the gearbox at all. Indeed, the car was built from the first batch by team driver Stu Evans – as it was his personal race car that was being used for the event!

drivers The drivers prepare for the start of the 24 hour race – each team has to marshal their own car, and only one marshal was allowed at a time from each team.

After the initial couple of hours had settled down and the racers had found their rythm, Team Rossmod-Durango settled into a good pace and with minimal preparation – the 2WD car proved its worth – lapping consistently and with trouble-free running.  Toward the end of the race there was a real battle between the two teams running 2WD – but in the end there was no touching the DEX210 and team Rossmod-Durango took second overall, and first of the 2WD cars.

The Rossmod-Durango team weren’t filled with expert drivers and there wasn’t even a quick-change battery system adopted by the team – instead they relied on team work and the reliablilty of the DEX210 – the only car at the race meeting that didn’t have a single problem during the whole 24 hour period.

The only other team not to have a single mechanical issue of any sort were team ‘Scottish Warriors’ – with only a minor electrical problem delaying their Team Durango DEX410 on its way to a solid 5th overall.

The York 24h endurance race is a fantastic and fun annual event which grows in popularity every year. Thanks to team Rossmod-Durango and the Scottish Warriors for choosing Team Durango as their vehicles of choice.  Roll on 2013!
