2012 Worksop Indoor Winter Series (UK), Round 2.

Filed under: News — Team Durango UK @ 5:59 pm

Round two of the most popular indoor race series in the UK took place on the 11th of November. Once again drivers from all over the country made the trip to the Worksop venue to pit their wits against each other at the UK’s premier indoor series.

The 2wd class was again in the ascendancy, and proved to be the most popular class. The Team Durango UK team were out to show that the DEX210 was able to keep itself ahead of the competition.

Nathan Waters and Craig Collinson were once again taking the fight to the opposition. Simon Moss would take the first two rounds of qualifying with good runs, whilst Craig and Nathan seemed to make the odd error which would cost them dear. However, roles were reversed in rounds three and four with Nathan taking TQ and the fastest overall time of the meeting to snatch TQ from Simon. Craig backed this up with second in each of rounds three and four to claim third position on the grid for the A main final. With both drivers using the DIMEC20 chassis (http://www.team-durango.com/part-info.php?partNo=TD320163), DEX210 cab-forward bodyshell (http://www.team-durango.com/part-info.php?partNo=TD402012) and some fine-tuning to their opening round set-ups, they were both full of confidence going into the final. Richard Ralph ran the DEX210 in RM configuration for the entire meeting and was unlucky to miss out on making the A main to team mate Ian Mellish who ran the MM version of his DEX210. Clearly the multiple configuration options of the DEX210, available as standard, allow different drivers to set the DEX210 perfectly for their own driving styles and track conditions.

In the 4wd class, Nathan, driving his DEX410v3, stamped his authority on qualifying from round one by taking thee TQ’s, only to be pipped in round thee by the flying Craig Collinson (DEX410v3). Adam Skelding (DEX410v3) also made the A main, qualifying  in eighth position on the grid.

Finals

2WD
Nathan would again show some racing resemblance to Sebastian Vettel in this final. From the sound of the tone, Nathan made for the hills and was out of DRS detection by the end of lap two, leading an excellent battle between Simon and Craig. Nathan marched on to a faultless race win with a perfectly balanced DEX210. Craig looked like he had settled for third place behind Simon, until a slight error from Simon left the door open for Craig to nip in and take second with a couple of laps remaining. With the pressure on, Craig drove well to hold Simon off to the line to take second and complete a Team Durango DEX210 1,2. Ian Mellish (DEX210) had an excellent race from tenth on the grid to finish sixth, also using the DIMEC20 chassis for the first time.

4WD
Nathan made an early error to allow Craig through to the lead, who then quickly re-paid the favour. From then on Nathan never really looked back and soon pulled away from Lloyd Storey and Craig (who had recovered back to third place). As the race came to an end, Nathan was the only one to make it through for the extra lap and decided to put in a storming last last to see how fast he could push his DEX410v3, and in doing so he took the fastest lap of the meeting in true ‘Vettel style’.

Team Durango now leads both championships after two rounds in the hands of Nathan Waters with Craig not far behind in each class.

Thanks again to the Worksop crew for another excellent event.
