Competing at the hotly contested sixth round of the KS Challenge in Kolín, in the Czech Republic, Kaja was setting the pace from the early stages of this weather effected meeting.

South Africa – Team Durango Multiple Podiums

sanatswins2013

Team Durango South Africa have recently returned from the fourth round of their domestic National series with a collection of great results.

Long-time Team Durango supporter and South African team driver Jaco van Eeden partnered young local star Eben Coetzee in a superb display of off-road racing skill. The event was held at the ever popular Avion RCX in Kempton Park, Gauteng, South Africa, and attracted some of the countries top off-road drivers.

Jaco and Eben set a blisteringly fast early pace with both drivers taking TQ honours in their chosen truck classes. Jaco was very happy to pilot his DESC410 Short Course truck to take a convincing TQ in the 4WD truck class. Eben was really on form during the qualifying rounds and took TQ place in the 2WD Short Course  class with his DESC210R vehicle.

Eben was clearly an ‘A’ main pace-man in both 2WD and 4WD buggy as he continued his recent winning ways with podium places in both classes. Jaco was also serious about podium finishes in the buggy classes as his experience and aggressive driving style also gave him top spots in 2WD and 4WD. Local Team Durango supporter Llewellyn Grobler was also feeling the benefit of precision engineered racing products as he followed his countrymen into the winners circle.

The fourth round of the South African Nationals was concluded with a solid Team Durango performance across all racing classes:

No Conversions, No Compromise

dex408tbirds001

The DEX408T was launched earlier this year to a feverishly expectant crowd of dedicated Team Durango 1/8 scale racing fans.

This thoroughbred 1/8 electric Truggy was custom designed to bring the already famous precision engineered quality of Team Durango to an even wider audience of serious racers. Upon the release of the DEX408T kit, hobby retailers all over the globe were swamped with requests regarding the latest Team Durango off-road offering.

Team Durango off-road racing star Ryan Lutz was quick to prove that the DEX408T is a race winning machine, with his recently crowned ROAR National title in the USA. Ryan piloted his DEX408T to an overall win in 1/8 Eletric Truggy and cemented the platform as yet another Team Durango success.

With the newest Team Durango race kit making fast pace on tracks all over the globe, it wasn’t long before other areas of the RC community started to recognise the awesome handling and strength of this 1/8 scale Electric ROAR Championship winning beast. Fans of fast and strong Truggy vehicles have adopted the DEX408T as the perfect tool for some off-track RC action too!

We recently found an exciting film created by Extreme Rc Bashing over on YouTube. Watch the DEX408T perform amazingly in an unusual setting, click here now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwJqcXlET5U

As always, we are inspired to see all the great footage and photos of a Team Durango vehicle. It has been really exciting to watch some of the track testing films created by dedicated Team Durango racers who are loving the power and poise of the DEX408T Truggy.

We really enjoyed seeing barny578 taking his Truggy out for the first test session in this film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlBBK57LlOE

With the Ryan Lutz achieving world-class racing results and the wider RC community embracing the qualities of a precision designed electric Truggy, we are certain that the DEX408T will continue to show the world that Team Durango are ‘Serious About Racing’

National Championships Fall To Team Durango Young Medal Hunters

Young Team Durango rising super stars in Poland have recently returned from their domestic National Championships with a complete ‘lock out’ of the winners podium spots!

Headed by the already recognised off-road racing talent of Michal Orlowski, Team Durango Poland took first, second and third in 2WD buggy with their DEX210 cars. They then went on to add a truly amazing 1,2,3 in 4WD buggy with their DEX410v3 vehicles. This concluded the Polish National Off-Road Series with Team Durango taking all six of the top winners spots.

Michal was to set the pace throughout this exciting series finale as he won every qualifying round in 4WD and two fast qualifiers in 2WD. Michal went on to secure National Champion status in both classes ahead of team mates Pawel Staszewski and Bartek Zambrzycki who further cemented the Team Durango presence at this prestigious event.

Team Durango Poland are young racers who are clearly already on a very targeted mission in Europe. With Michal Orlowski soon due to land in Chico California for the upcoming 1/10 World Championship events, it is set to be a really interesting few months for the youngest members of the Team Durango global network of racers.
