eurowarmup2nddetc410

Team Durango Touring Car superstar Elliott Harper has returned from the recent warm-up event for the 2013 TC European Championships with a second overall!

Elliott piloted his DETC410 through an impressive series of qualifying rounds that saw him gain two second place finishes as the star studded field battled for pre-Euro supremacy. Elliott worked hard throughout his visit to the Torres Novas venue as his DETC410 quickly found the race pace.

Elliott qualified third for the A main final against world-class Touring Car racers from several established TC manufacturers. Elliott was straight into the action during his three final runs, and he has reported that the racing was close and very fast. The DETC410 provided the perfect match for Elliott and his awesome driving skills as they flew to the finish line for a second overall!

Elliott was very excited to share these inspirational words with us all in the wake of a great result for our upcoming Touring Car platform;

“Testing for 6 days at the Euros warm up went very well and throughout the time in Portugal the car always performed with great lap times. After the race the car was improved further and shows great promise for not only the Euros but also for other coming races!” – Elliott Harper – Team Durango

We are very excited by this wonderful result, and look forward to the DETC410 gaining more high profile race results during the coming months.

aaronspringwins2013

Dedicated and talented Team Durango Irish racer Aaron Vance has recently returned from his local off-road spring series campaign with plenty to smile about. Aaron piloted his DEX410v3 vehicle to an A final position in every round!

Aaron and his DEX410v3 were dominant throughout this indoor series, with Aaron achieving a win and pole position final place in all 11 rounds. Aaron went on to secure the first overall position against some very experienced competition, once again proving that the DEX410v3 is a formidable platform at all levels of 10th scale off-road racing.

We send our congratulations to Aaron, and look forward to watching him bring Team Durango more great results on the Emerald Isle.

Filed under: News,Team Driver — Tags: , — Stuart @ 12:33 pm

rainerestoniawinsdex408

Rainer Ressar has returned from the recent first round of the  Estonian 8th electric buggy National series victorious. Rainer piloted his DEX408 buggy to a solid first overall with competition fierce as the 8th scale racing season started in full force.

The temporary grass track venue at Tallinna Laulaväljak was not only the first venue Rainer would race on grass, but also one of the first meetings he would run with his new Team Durango car. It seems that the DEX408 was perfectly suited to this high profile meeting, with third overall taken by Tõnu Tooming who was also racing a DEX408. With Viljar Kask backing up these podium finishes with a respectable fifth overall, again DEX408 powered, it was a Team Durango day for our dedicated racers.

We send our congratulations to Rainer, Tõnu and Viljar for a great performance. The DEX408 is clearly setting the pace on all surfaces across the globe.

Novotny Returns With Double Podium – DEX210 & DEX410v3 Clean Sweep

novotny-new-win-mibosport2013

Team Durango young rising star Kaja Novotny has recently taken a double win at the first round of the Mibosport Cup in the Czech Republic. Kaja piloted his DEX210 and DEX410v3 through wet track conditions during qualifying, but found great success by combining his Team Durango vehicles with the engineered racing rubber of dBoots tyres.

Kaja was pleased to see better weather conditions for his finals with dry Astroturf allowing him to dominate every final in both classes. This provided Kaja with an overall TQ and first place in 2WD and 4WD! Kaja put the cherry on his racing cake by also finishing more than one lap ahead of the battling field, again in both 2WD and 4WD buggy classes.

Kaja reported that he was so happy with his Team Durango cars that he found no need to touch his set-up configuration and ran the whole race meeting with exactly what he started with. Testimony to how versatile both the DEX210 and DEX410v3 vehicles are when the weather conditions are in flux.

Kaja continues to reign supreme in his domestic racing calender and we congratulate him for another very powerful performance. We cannot wait to see how he will bring his professional racing skills to the highest level of competition at this year’s European Championships.

Kaja Novotny is clearly ‘Serious About Racing’

Fast Facts – 5 Things To Make Your Racing Safe

Filed under: News — Tags: , — Stuart @ 12:30 pm

rc-fun-zone-new-indoor-track-in-portugal-8

At Team Durango we are keen promoters of safe and professional environments to enjoy the sport of RC racing. With the speed of racing cars increasing every season, and the inherent dangers that go with being close to these powerful machines, its time to wise up when it comes to staying safe.

With racing clubs all over the world becoming even more accessible to young and old race fans alike, we wanted to share with you five facts that will help you stay safe when racing for the win with Team Durango.

Fast Facts – Race Safety

  1. Always charge your LiPo battery cells in a fire proof pouch. This will avoid any danger from damaged cells becoming volatile when hooked up to your charger. LiPo cells are not hand grenades, but should be treated with care to maintain long life and safe operation.
  2. When you are marshaling for other racers be hyper aware of your position on each track you visit. Most tracks will have markers that denote where to stand or sit. When you step into the track area to assist a vehicle, make sure you are not in the direct line of fast moving vehicles. You can wear thin fitting gloves to save you fingers when untangling crashed cars. Stay alert and do not watch the race, watch your section of track always.
  3. Never leave your RC race vehicle turned on if you must walk away from it. This sounds obvious but we still see vehicles that are switched on with nobody attending them. A younger racer may not realise the car is powered up and become too close if you plan to drive away. If your vehicle experiences an electrical failure when unattended it could drive off on its own, less likely to happen with the advent of 2.4GHZ radio systems but caution should be used at all times.
  4. Be aware of younger racers and spectators. We should all keep an eye on those who are smaller and more vulnerable, no less when they are next to a fast moving race track. Some of us have first hand experience of being hit by an RC race car and it hurts! Younger racers or spectators may not be aware your car is near them when marshaling. The best rule is that if they are not looking directly at your car then take care, regardless of their age or experience.
  5. Secure your expensive race gear and make sure you know where everything is at all times. Our wonderful sport is one of the rare places where you can often wonder off from your racing gear and feel that all items will be there when you return. We love the community spirit in RC racing. Do not take this overall rule for granted though, there is always a chance you may lose your expensive gear if you are not careful. We all respect each other in RC racing but the risk of theft or loss of your hard-earned kit should make us cautious when in unfamiliar surroundings. Treat other racers as you would expect to be treated.

We are certain that if you follow these five fast facts you will have hundreds of hours of fast paced racing enjoyment. You will always feel safe, and will never miss out on the action due to injury or upset.

Race fast and stay safe. Our sport benefits from an amazing community spirit and would not be what it is without safe and professional attitudes.
