Team Durango – Merry Christmas – 2013 Summary

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver,Young At Heart — Tags: , , , , — Stuart @ 12:13 pm


Merry Christmas from all of us here at Team Durango HQ.

2013 has been an awesome year for us, and we would like to send our thanks to each and every one of you. With a great selection of results for our team drivers, the launch of our new 1/10 4WD Buggy, the DEX410v4, and the upcoming release of our first Touring Car project, 2013 will be remembered for many exciting reasons.

The 2013 IFMAR Worlds saw Team Durango Pro team star Jörn Neumann return with a 4WD TQ finish, having already taken the 2013 EFRA European Championship 2WD title with his DEX210 a few months prior.


Our resident Touring Car pro team of Elliott Harper and Michal Orlowski found great success during early race testing of the soon to be released DETC410. Elliott finished third overall at the EFRA European Touring Car Championships, having already taken several prestigious victories in the UK, at the BRCA British Touring Car National Series.


Team Durango USA pro racers Travis Amezcua and Ryan Lutz continued to dominate Regional and National off-road competition across both 1/8 and 1/10 electric and nitro race classes, with Ryan Lutz taking the newly released DEX408T to an exciting ROAR Nationals title on one of his first outings with the vehicle. Both drivers returned from the 2013 IFMAR Worlds with top 10 finishes in 1/10 4WD Buggy.

Team Durango European team drivers also took our brand into new and exciting realms, with the likes of Czech star Kaja Novotny and Portuguese ace Nuno Roque winning a host of high-profile race meetings during 2013.

French off-road Team Durango driver Antoinne Rossetti continued to podium finish everything he entered, with long-time team member Hupo Hönigl also securing several prestigious race titles to add to an awesome year of global race results.

Overall, 2013 was an inspiration to us all. As we look forward to another action packed year in 2014, we send our sincere thanks to our team drivers, media partners, staff, customers, stockists, fans and supporters.

We just couldn’t be Team Durango without all of you.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Novotny Takes Another Triple Podium – Lestr Cup Round 4


Team Durango Czech Republic off-road ace Kaja Novotny has returned from the fourth round of the hotly contested Lestr Cup with yet another collection of triple podium finishes!

Kaja was really happy to take three podium places at the previous third round, so he was primed for a repeat attempt during the recently held fourth round race meeting in Dubec.

Kaja was again in blisteringly fast form as he flew to an overall first place finish in 2WD with his DEX210 Buggy, this result included an overall TQ place, proving that Kaja and his DEX210 were fastest in this class against some very quick competition. He then added a first overall in Short Course with his DESC410Rv2, beating a field of experienced Short Course racers to take the top spot well before the third leg of the ‘A’ main was underway.

Kaja is already well known for his ability to switch racing classes during high pressure meetings. His third and final podium finish of the day added to this reputation, as he finished second overall in 4WD with his DEX410 Buggy, to complete a really exciting hat trick of results for Team Durango.

We send our congratulations to Kaja for another great performance. His racing skills continue to grow as he takes Team Durango products onto the podium in multiple racing classes in Europe.

Jarred King – Team Durango Australia Double

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver — Tags: , , , , , — Stuart @ 10:46 am


New Team Durango Australia signing Jarred King has returned from the Sydney JConcepts Clash with a double first place finish, and an overall TQ in 4WD for his brand new DEX410v4.

Jarred was extremely happy to take the double winners crown at his first major race meeting since joining our team driver roster last month. The 100 strong field of racers battled hard on a dry and dusty off-road track near Castle Hill in Eastern Australia, as the regions fastest drivers raced for supremacy.

Jarred piloted his DEX210 Buggy to a convincing victory in 2WD, despite losing a tyre during the ‘A’ main finals after clipping a track pipe in the final laps of his victorious performance.

Jarred then went on to prove the awesome performance of his new DEX410v4 Buggy, by setting a TQ pace in 4WD on the loose dirt track. Jarred flew home to take first spot and reported that the DEX410v4 was perfectly balanced, with its new Two-Way Slipper Clutch system bringing added handling capabilities on the dusty surface.


Jarred King pushes his DEX410v4 to a TQ and overall first in Sydney last weekend

Jarred is keen to highlight that the DEX410v4 is very easy to drive fast straight from the kit box, with consistent lap times being made easier by such refinements as the new UJ Centre Drive Shafts.

We send our congratulations to Jarred for a great result, and we welcome him to the team for the 2014 racing season.

Team Durango Portugal racer Nuno Roque has concluded the Portuguese 2013 Off-Road Cup by adding second overall in 2WD to his already secured first overall in 4WD electric Buggy.

This final result with his DEX210 Buggy puts Nuno into yet another double podium finish for Team Durango. Nuno has raced hard over recent months, with his domestic off-road campaign being staged across a wide selection of challenging track surfaces. The Team Durango DEX410v3 and DEX210 have performed brilliantly for Nuno, and his final results are a great inspiration to not just Team Durango fans in Portugal, but all across the globe.

The DEX410v4 has recently been announced, and we are extremely excited to see Nuno take to the track for 2014 with the latest evolutionary phase of this already proven 4WD racing platform. Nuno is a passionate racer, a great ambassador for Team Durango, and an advocate for welcoming you all to the world of off-road racing.

Lutz Takes Double – DEX408v2 & DNX408 Podiums

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver — Tags: , , , — Stuart @ 9:55 am


Ryan Lutz has recently returned with a double podium win from the 2014 Fall Brawl race event near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA.

The Team Durango Pro racing star challenged a large field of experienced 1/8 scale racers in Nitro and Electric Buggy classes. Ryan found great success with his brand new DEX408v2, taking first overall and a hard fought TQ place.

The cold weather conditions in Southern Carolina were a challenge for Ryan as he battled through rain and biting wind to also put his DNX408 into TQ position, and then first overall, in the nitro buggy class. This completed a great Team Durango double podium victory for Ryan, as he once again showed his 1/8 racing talents against some of the regions fastest drivers.

It is great to see Ryan taking a well-deserved double podium finish in tough conditions. It is also very exciting to see the latest version of  our thoroughbred 1/8 Electric Buggy bringing home a prestigious win, especially so soon after its launch.

Congratulations go to Ryan for an another excellent performance.
