Team Durango Canada – Quebec Classic


Hot Temperatures and Hot Racing – Quebec Challenge 2014

Our racing colleagues from Team Durango Canada, managed by distributors Great Hobbies, have recently returned from the fiercely competitive Quebec Challenge.

The team found the race conditions a challenge, with Quebec being baked under extremely hot weather during the action-packed race weekend. Team drivers Yannick, Rene and Dan Leblanc were determined to make a fast impression against a field of local and National racing talent.


Joined by friend and fellow Team Durango fan, Andrew “Butters” Burghgraef from Ottawa, the guys set about tuning their Team Durango DEX408v2, DESC410v2 and Dnx408V2 vehicles for the early qualifying sessions.

The Circuit RC International dirt track was producing very high grip levels due to the scorching temperatures, and the Team Durango racers got quickly into the action with all drivers making great pace, but later qualifiers saw them plagued with electronics issues, largely attributed to the soaring temperatures.

A few fast switches of running gear saw the Team Durango Canada crew settling back into the action. They were happy to finish their qualifying track time with an E-Buggy ‘A’ Main place for the DEX408v2, another ‘A’  position for the DESC410v2 and a solid ninth in the Truggy ‘A’ main for the DEX408T.


Team mate  Jamie Smitheram had to unfortunately miss day one due to an injury, but was really happy to join his race fellow Team Durango racers for the ‘A’ Main action by placing his DEX408T straight into the top ten.

With Team Durango Canada primed for the action of the events finals schedule, the guys were very happy to see young Yannick take third in 4WD Shourt Course with his DESC410v2. with Jamie taking sixth in his Truggy final piloting the DEX408T and Andrew graciously showing why his race maturity will always produce a strong team ethos, as he moved over in his ‘B’ Main final due to an electronics glitch.

The Quebec Challenge was a real team effort for the Great Hobbies and Team Durango endorsed race team. With some hot track action and blazing weather conditions to contend with, we send our congratulations to the team for a great set of results in difficult conditions.

The Hall brothers, Jamie and Tommy, are out and about again this summer, competing at all rounds of the BRCA Short Course National Tour.

Both young racers use the DESC210R Short Course Truck, and have found really pleasing results so far for 2014. Jamie is currently sat in third position on the BRCA Short Course National standings, with Tommy, who is only nine years old, nestling well withing ‘A’ Main pace at sixth place overall.

We should also mention that Jamie, aged 11 years old, is wining the junior series, with his brother Tommy once again backing him up by placing second overall as the season stands currently.

Neumann Double 2014 Euro Champion


2014 Double European Champions – Jörn Neumann & Team Durango 

2014 EFRA 2WD Eurpean Champion – Jörn Neumann – Team Durango DEX210v2

2014 EFRA 4WD European Champion – Jörn Neumann – Team Durango DEX410v4

Team Durango Off-Road racing star Jörn Neumann has concluded an action packed 2014 EFRA European Championship week by being crowned the double champion.

Having already successfully defended his 2WD Euro crown earlier last week, Jörn set about cementing Team Durango as off-road 1/10 Buggy champions, with his DEX410v4 in the 4WD class.

Jörn was able to hold-fast against heavy racing pressure from the fastest drivers in Europe, showing his calm and calculated racing style serves him excellently when the ‘A’ Main finals are a star studded affair.


The DEX410v4 performed amazingly well on the slippery and technical dirt track in Trelleborg,Sweden, providing Jörn with exactly the kind of race-winning characteristics that are required when every second counts.

With strong support from Gerd Strenge in the pits throughout the week of hotly contested off-road action, Jörn was able to concentrate fully on how best to master the challenging in-door dirt conditions, which found many racers struggling to string together consistent lap times.


Having secured leg one and two of the fast-paced ‘A’ Main final, Jörn elected to sit out the third leg, having already done more than enough to take the title.

Young Polish Team Durango racer Michal Orlowski further added to the successful results by making his first ever European Championship ‘A’ final with his DEX410v4, with a final finishing position of 9th overall. This is a really great result for Michal and his father Matthew, especially as Michal is still only 12 years old!

We send our sincere congratulations and thanks to Jörn for an awesome European Championship performance. We also share our excitement and gratitude to Michal and Mathew Orlowski for a great result. A huge thank you goes to Gerd Strenge who serves as a constant inspiration to the whole team.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our friends at Neo Buggy and RC Racing TV for their world-class event coverage.
