Czech Team Durango racer, Kaja Novonty, concluded his recent trip to the first round of the prestigious Lestr Cup by taking four first place finishes.

Kaja was very happy to secure the win in 2WD Buggy, 4WD Buggy, 4WD Short Course and 1/8 E Buggy, stamping his Team Durango mark on the field of racers.

With every class also bringing Kaja the TQ honours, it was a fast paced first round of the 2014/15 Lestr Cup for the young star.

Kaja was able to win all qualifying rounds in 1/10 4WD, with his DEX410v4. He then went on to win all legs of the ‘A’ Main finals to secure his place on the top spot, adding the overall TQ place to his performance.

Moving to 1/8 Electric Buggy, armed with his DEX408v2, Kaja again dominated qualifying. He then secured his first place finish and overall TQ place by winning all three legs of the ‘A’ Main finals.
