Vance Takes Double Podium In Ireland


Irish Team Durango racing star Aaron Vance has recently completed a double podium finish in the 2013 Ireland Winter Race. The event was staged at Emm Naul, just outside Dublin, and was attended by many of the fastest drivers in Ireland.

Aaron competed in the 2WD and 4WD 1/10 Electric Buggy classes, and finished with a solid third in 2WD with his DEX210. Aaron then added a very impressive second overall in 4WD with his DEX410v3 to complete his double winning performance.

Aaron dominated the winter calendar in Ireland during his 2012 campaign, and as the 2013/14 season begins to get underway, we are very excited to hear more exciting news from Aaron.

Congratulations from us all here at Team Durango HQ

Novotny Double Podium – DEX408v2 & DEX410


Team Durango Czech Republic racing star Kaja Novotny has added to his recent awesome racing form with another multiple podium result.

The second round of the Prague Open Challenge took place last weekend, which included racing classes for 1/10 Electric Buggy, Short Course and the increasingly popular 1/8 Electric Buggy. Kaja competed in 1/10 and 1/8 Electric Buggy classes and gained an overall first place finish and TQ in both.

Kaja piloted his DEX410v3 and DEX408v2 to the double victory against a large field of the regions fastest off-road racers, and was joined on the podium top spot by fellow Team Durango supporters Michal Strnad and Petr Plodik, who had taken first and second respectively in the Short Course class with their DESC410Rv2 and DESC210R Trucks.

The second round of the Prague Open Challenge saw Team Durango vehicles taking top honours in all classes. We send our congratulations to Kaja for yet another great performance in Europe.

Orlowski Takes Double Podium – Mibosport Cup Round 2

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,New Products,News,Team Driver — Tags: , , , , — Stuart @ 11:45 am


Team Durango Polish star Michal Orlowski has again proven his world-class versatility by taking first overall in 2WD Buggy and third overall in Modified Touring Car at the second round of the Mibosport Cup in the Czech Republic.

Michal battled some of Europe’s fastest racers to take a well-deserved first on the podium in 2WD Off-Road with his DEX210. Pushing aside strong competition from the likes of Martin Bayer and Jiri Mara, Michal was able to secure the top position for Team Durango.

With an unusual opportunity for Michal to compete in off-road and on-road races during one event, he then took his Team Durango DETC410 Touring Car to the track, and was rewarded with a third overall in an action packed display of on-road racing.


Not only did Michal show great versatility in taking podium positions across two distinctly different styles of racing class, but he also exposed the multi-class performance of Team Durango precision racing products.

The DETC410 will soon be available to the world, and Michal Orlowski, alongside his UK team mate Elliott Harper, has already proven its race winning potential.

We send our congratulations to Michal and his father for another great display of professional RC driving for Team Durango.

Team Durango Short Course Trucks – Big Hit In Finland

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Young At Heart — Tags: , , , , — Stuart @ 2:39 pm


The Team Durango 2WD and 4WD Short Course range have recently found huge success in Finland at the first round of their Short Course Winter Cup.

The LRP Arena near Turku hosted an action packed meeting that witnessed what we think may be a new Team Durango record. The ‘A’ main finals across both 2WD and 4WD saw a total of 12 Team Durango Short Course Trucks racing from the total 20 finalists!

The DESC210R claimed four of the ‘A’ main final positions with Mikko Laitinen taking second overall. Tommi Tervo took third spot with Mikko Mäkelä finishing fourth overall.


In 4WD it was to be a really great day of racing for those drivers who chose the precision manufactured DESC410v2. With eight of the ‘A’ main finalists driving Team Durango Trucks, it was Tomi Salonen who flew to first overall, followed by Max Söderlund who placed third,  Eeli Vieno who finished fourth and yet another DESC410v2 in fifth, piloted by Tom Thusberg.

Not only did our friends in Finland show how popular Team Durango Short Course Trucks are, they also showed how one manufacturer can help ignite a whole racing class when the product is fast in the hands of all ages and abilities.

We send our congratulations to our dedicated supporters over in Finland, and send sincere thanks to everybody who contributed to such a fun and exciting first round of the Short Course Winter Cup.

Collinson Takes Chadderton Double Win


Craig Collinson has recently added another great result to his winter campaign for Team Durango with a double TQ and double overall first place at the Chadderton Winter Series near Manchester in the UK.

Craig was quick to stamp his formidable pace on both 2WD and 4WD classes with his DEX210 and DEX410v3 cars, as he powered through qualifying at the second round of the ever-popular indoor off-road series. Having previously dominated the first round at Chadderton, it didn’t take Craig long to secure the TQ position in 2WD with some of the regions fastest racers following the ‘Collinson Train’.


Number one for Collinson and his DEX410v3

It was to be the same story in 4WD, as Craig flew to TQ honours with his DEX410v3, placing in pole position for both ‘A’ main finals.

Craig was happy to supply an almost perfect action replay of the first round of the series by winning both ‘A’ main finals to secure a total of four podium spots across two meetings!

With the winter season in full swing across the UK, it is going to be an exciting time for Team Durango as Craig continues to return with such great results. Congratulations Craig for another solid performance.

Maritime Double Podium For UK Pro Team – Off-Road Wars Series


Team Durango UK Pro Team drivers have returned victorious from the second round of the hotly contested Off-Road Wars Series at Maritime Raceway in Kent.

Ellis Stafford had previously TQ’d and won the first round in 4WD with his DEX410v4, and he was straight back into his winning ways with another overall TQ, and the first place overall in 4WD for this second round meeting. Ellis is really enjoying the pace of the soon to be released DEX410v4 Buggy, and once again showed that he can command the racing pack straight from the start on Maritime’s tight and fast track.


Our very own European Champion, Chris Doughty, was really happy to put his DEX210 in second place after qualifying, against a strong field of regular Maritime ‘A’ finalists. This was to be the first trip Chris would make to the Maritime venue, and he really made the most of his debut performance with a second overall for Team Durango in 2WD.


With a double podium finish across the two classes raced secured, it was also inspirational to see Team Durango’s newest recruit, and one of the youngest racers on the team, Ollie Currie, finishing fourth overall in 2WD and his team mate Fabian Simonini finishing eighth overall in 4WD.

We send our congratulations to the team for a great performance. Ellis continues to build upon his 2013/2014 winter campaign and we look forward to more exciting news from him very soon.

Team Durango Portugal – Nuno Wins 2013 Indoor Off-Road Series

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver — Tags: , , , , , , — Stuart @ 5:00 pm


Team Durango Portugal are celebrating a great result for their racing colleague Nuno Roque, after he has returned from a collection of annual off-road meetings as 2013 4WD Portuguese Indoor Off-Road Series Champion!

Nuno and his DEX410v3 flew to an overall victory in 4WD with one meeting still remaining in the series. The host club for the recent penultimate round opted for a carpet surface. This gave Nuno the perfect opportunity to show everybody just what he, and the Team Durango DEX410v3, can do on high-grip indoor surfaces.

Nuno also finished second overall in 2WD at this round, with his DEX210, to complete yet another double podium finish. Nuno is yet to win the 2WD Indoor Off-Road Series this year, as the results will not be concluded until the final round in a few weeks.

We send our congratulations to Nuno as he is deservedly crowned the 2013 Portuguese Off-Road 4WD Indoor Series Champion. Can he make it a double title with his DEX210 at the final round?
