EOS Round 1 – Team Durango Win Everything

eostriple2wdpodium

Team Durango have returned from the first round of the 2013/2014 EOS competition with eight podium finishes across four racing classes!

2013 2WD European Champion Jörn Neumann was to lead his Team Durango colleagues into battle at the ATA Hobby Show venue in Poznan, Poland. Neumann was looking for his eighth consecutive EOS round win, having finished both 2WD and 4WD Champion in last year’s EOS timetable of race events.

It was to be a dominant opening round for Team Durango, with the following victories forming the basis of two total podium ‘lock-outs’.

2WD Buggy

1ST: Hupo Hönigl – DEX210

2ND: Jörn Neumann – DEX210

3RD: Michal Orlowski – DEX210

4WD Buggy

1ST: Jörn Neumann – DEX410v3

2WD Short Course

1ST: Miko Morgenstern – DESC210R

4WD Short Course

1ST: Jörn Neumann – DESC410v2

2ND: Hupo Hönigl – DESC410v2

3RD: Kaja Nov0tny – DESC410v2

Team Durango offered a formidable display of off-road racing in front of the 40,000 strong show spectators, not only proving once again how versatile their vehicles are at the highest level of competition, but also demonstrating the ability they have to perform as a solid team unit when under pressure. Young stars Michal Orlowski and Kaja Novotny provided awesome performances that far outstrip their age, whilst Hupo and Jörn cemented their powerful hold over European off-road racing.

Jörn Neumann was to return with his eighth EOS round victory, piloting his DEX410v3 to 1ST in 4WD Buggy

National 2WD Short Course Champion Joins Team Durango

hallkidspitmats2013

Jamie and Tommy Hall have recently set a new standard that will inspire all young  off-road racers. Jamie was recently crowned the 2013 Junior 2WD Short Course Champion, with his younger brother Tommy also finishing high in the season rankings. Both young racers also concluded their 2013 Short Course season by finishing in the top ten of the overall BRCA National series, right next to the adult competitors! This will be the third BRCA title that Jamie has won over as many years.

We are extremely excited to announce that Jamie Hall will now be joining our UK racing team, bringing another champion into the Team Durango family. Tommy Hall will also be joining the team, as we look forward to supporting these two young racers over the next action packed season of racing.

Jamie and Tommy are already a great example of the future of off-road racing, and a quick look into their family heritage shows us that their Mother was a National full-scale dirt oval champion. Their Father was involved in full-scale auto-cross for many years also. The Hall family are definitely ‘Serious About Racing’, and we welcome them to the team.

Team Durango New Zealand, headed by long-time supporter and off-road super star Shane O’Connor, have recently returned from the New Zealand North Island Champs victorious.

Shane was racing on fast form during this very popular multi-class off-road racing event. He was representing Team Durango in 2WD Buggy, 2WD Short Course and 4WD Short Course, as well as supporting the throngs of excited Team Durango fans who had chosen our vehicles to do battle at the prestigious event. With four days of intense competition completed, Shane was extremely happy to come home with an overall TQ in 2WD Buggy, 2WD Short Course and 4WD Short Course!

Not a racer to settle with anything but total victory, Shane then powered home for an overall first in 2WD Buggy and 4WD Short Course to stamp the Team Durango livery across the time sheets in style.

Shane drove the DEX210, DESC210R and DESC410v2 during the event and was able to show his dedication to the brand that is ‘Serious About Racing’ by beating a vast field of local talent, many of whom had also opted to utilise the world-class precision engineered products from Team Durango.

Avid Team Durango fan Angus Mcleod came overall first in 2WD Short Course with his DESC210R. Kelly Churchill was the highest placed female racer at the event, choosing Team Durango Race Ready RTR vehicles to put her straight into the top 20 listing in what was only her fourth ever race meeting since joining the hobby a short while ago!

Shane was really happy to also report that the DEX410v3 was fast at the Counties RC venue in Auckland. Taking four of the top ten positions in 4WD Buggy, the DEX410v3 found the dry dirt track surface easy to navigate for final positions of  second, third and fourth overall.

kajaseries2013

Team Durango Czech star Kaja Novotny has won both 2WD and 4Wd 1/10 Electric Buggy championship titles in the hotly contested Mibosport Cup.

Kaja recently attended the final round of this popular race series more as a formality than a final chase for valuable points, as he had already secured both championship titles at the close of the previous round.

With the high grip Astroturf surface suiting his super-aggressive racing style, Kaja crowned his recent series performance by winning all qualifying rounds in both classes as he relaxed and enjoyed his laps of honour.

The DEX410v3 and DEX210 have given Kaja the perfect opportunity to race fast and clean during the Mibosport series. Both cars have once again shown that they are versatile, durable and able to compete at the highest level of competition in all conditions.

Congratulations go to Kaja for a wonderful display of off-road driving. With the upcoming EOS calender starting soon, we are very excited to watch Kaja Novotny do what he does best, race for the win with Team Durango.
