Ryan Lutz recently made Team Durango history by returning from the Silver State Nitro Challenge with no less that five top qualifier results. Ryan TQ’d every class…you read correctly, every class. This is a feat that not only deserves some very respectful recognition, but also can not be argued with. There is no doubt that Ryan is at the very top of off-road RC competition.

His already amazing results were further crowned by him winning the Short Course class with his DESC410v2 and also winning the 8th scale Nitro Truggy class with the DNX408T. Team Durango super racers never do things by half.

The attached images are our way of thanking Ryan. We do not just thank him for his wonderful racing performance, but we also share our gratitude for his professional attitude, his tireless enthusiasm and with no exception, his humble ability to inspire us all.

Team Durango Poland – Orlowski Wins Off-Road Champs For Team Durango

orlowski2wdwin2013

Team Durango young super racer Michal Orlowski has added to his recent success at the EOS meetings by winning both 2WD and 4WD classes at the final round of the Polish Winter Championships. Michal was again dominant across both classes with a performance on the track that was as strong as any seasoned racer you will see. At 11 years old, Michal is forging an enviable reputation across his domestic racing scene in Poland, and his recent track results are confirmation that he will be THE young star to watch during the upcoming outdoor season.

Michal secured first overall in 2WD with his DEX210 setting the pace from an early stage. He was followed by Team Durango team mate Bartek Zambrzycki who battled back from a fifth position start in the A final to secure third overall. Team Durango exerted their serious pressure on 2WD and then changed their focus to the 4WD racing.

Michal again pushed the very limits of a very fast and tight track lay-out. His DEX410v3 provided a very pleasing first overall against a fast field of local talent. Michal won the A final with a two lap lead over his rivals. Bartek Zambrzycki came third overall to secure four Team Durango podium positions from a possible six at this exciting off-road event.

Team Durango Poland have already secured a very firm position within their local racing scene. Their individual and team successes have given Team Durango fans world-wide a real high level of inspiration when it comes to watching young racing talent.

DETC410 – From The Shadows To The Podium In The Hands Of Harper – Records Get Smashed

elliottfirstwinscotswold001

Team Durango Touring Car star Elliott Harper has given the DETC410 the strongest debut possible with a record breaking outing at the recently contested BTCC. The high profile race meeting at Cotswold RC track was attended by some of the classes fastest UK based racers. Elliot was early to set a blistering pace, a pace that proved impossible for his rivals to catch.

The DETC410 was set to provide Elliott with the perfect platform to TQ every round of qualifying and smash his previously held track record at the venue. Elliott was to post the fastest lap ever at the Cotswold’s track. The DETC410 pulled away from all other manufacturers to begin its domination of an event that is unofficially, but widely regarded as, a warm-up to the soon to be raced National Touring Car Series.

The DETC410 broke two long-standing track records and was not knocked from top position during the whole event. Elliott was unfortunate to clip a stone during one of his record laps, which resulted in his car flipping and breaking a top deck due to a heavy collision with a track-side obstacle. Elliott and the DETC410 shook of this crash and went on to pull away a further half a lap lead from the chasing field of pro drivers!

Elliott was to conclude the DETC410’s premier by winning both A final legs to be crowned overall winner.

The pit lane was alive with whispers and excited conversations. The DETC410 had landed, and Elliott Harper had shown his rivals how serious Team Durango really are about their entry to this hotly contested racing class.

With rival manufacturers also fielding their own new platforms, the DETC410 was clearly in very safe hands as Elliott Harper piloted this precision engineered race machine from the realms of Touring Car enthusiasts fantasy straight to the winners podium.

The final results looked like this:

1ST- Elliott Harper – Team Durango DETC410

2ND – Chris Grainger – Schumacher MI5

3RD – Olly Jeffries – Team Associated TC6.1

Elliott shared these inspiring words with us straight after his pleasing win – ” The First full race meeting for the DETC410 went exceptionally well, and the early pace is extremely encouraging. Development is racing forwards at the moment and the ‘race pace’ can only get better! It is great to know that the DETC410 is already a class leading performer” Elliott Harper – Team Durango

We congratulate Elliott on a truly awesome display of driving,and join our International drivers network in sharing our excitement for the upcoming months of racing.

If you are serious about winning and recognise precision engineering as the ONLY way to reign supreme, get ready for the DETC410. At Team Durango racing is not just our passion, it is our profession.
