Team Durango win big at EOS RD1 – Poland

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 12:08 pm

It was a near-perfect weekend for Team Durango at the opening round of the Euro Off-Road Series – or EOS – in Poznan, Poland.  The event was taking place in one corner of a huge hall during a busy model and hobby exhibition.  It was a great chance for the public to see some of the worlds best drivers battle it out on the all-carpet track that the organisers had laid out.

dBoots were the control tyre but unlike the previous EOS series – this time there was more choice for the front of the 2WD buggies with the release of the new ‘Block Pass’ tyre. In 2WD practice drivers were trying both with most settling on the more forgiving and therefore easier to push hard, Block Pass on the front.  Hupo however stuck with what he knew and use the Nanobytes up front on his DEX210.

2WD qualifying saw Team  Durango driver Jörn Neumann at the top – taking three of the four rounds for pole position in the three leg final.

Jörn took the win in both opening legs of the A-main to claim the win, with Hupo coming in 5th and Kaja Novotny 8th – all running the DEX210.

2WD Short Course was a support class but an impressive 1st place for Tom Bujara using the new DESC210R was backed up with Team Durango originator Gerd Strenge in 3rd overall.

4WD buggy was, quite simply a  Team Durango lock-out. Jörn took the overall TQ with Hupo Hönigl second on the grid and German driver Benni Gröschel making qualifying a Team Durango 1-2-3.

The racing didn’t disappoint either – with all three Durango drivers pulling away from the field – remaining in their start order to take the top three positions in the opening two legs.  Jörn had to sit out the third leg of the main after securing the result.

Thanks to all the Team Durango drivers who attended the opening round – and congratulations to all the team on what was a fantastic performance all round.
