Hupo claims both titles at Austrian Nationals RD5

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 4:59 pm

Hupo reports on the final round of the 2012 Austrian 10th off road national series – where he took the win in both classes and was also crowned double-national champion with his Team Durango cars!

Last weekend was the 5th and final Austrian Nationals round for 1/10th scale buggies, in Traiskirchen – a track which has hosted the European Championships on two occasions, 1999 and 2010. It’s the most difficult and challenging track we have in Austrian, and also my favourite one!


A week before the event the club did an amazing job, by redoing the surface and cleaning everything around the track, this took a lot of effort because the outdoor season will end very soon! In the end all the effort payed off and we had 2 wonderful days of racing, the rain during the night did not hurt the track at all and we had perfect conditions for sunday!

Both of my Team Durango cars worked really well all weekend and I could TQ and win both classes, which gave me the overall win in the Austrian National Series. The last round saw again many durango cars in the A-main:
