Amezcua doubles at 2016 Fling

2016 Spring Fling Race – 1ST place overall in 2WD mod buggy – Travis Amezcua – Team Durango  DEX210F 

2016 Spring Fling Race – 2ND place overall in 4WD mod buggy – Travis Amezcua – Team Durango  DEX410v5 

Team Durango USA racer, Travis Amezcua, has returned from the the annual Spring Fling indoor race with two podium finishes, including a first overall and two TQs.

Racing the DEX210F in the hyper-competitive 2WD modified class, Travis was able to secure the TQ, surging through his competitors to also be crowned overall first place podium winner for Team Durango. The aggressive and technical Astroturf track was no match for Travis’ DEX210F, with his TQ gained from finishing almost a full lap ahead of the chasing pack.

A switch to 4WD, racing the newly launched DEX410v5, gave Travis another bite at stamping his mark on the prestigious event. He raced to an overall TQ, then took 2ND place on the podium after an eventful set of ‘A’ Main finals.

Double podium, double TQ. Job done for Team Durango.

DEX410v5 Takes Snowman Race


New Race Machine – Strong Victory

Returning from the recently contested round of the annual winter series at Broxtowe Model Car Club in the UK, James Ambrose was very happy to take the overall win with his DEX410v5.

Dubbed the Snowman Series, Broxtowe is a popular haunt for off-road drivers looking to test their skills on a challenging outdoor track layout.

Racing on high-grip Astroturf, with the newly-launched Team Durango 4WD Buggy, James made light work of the journey to the top podium spot, commenting that his DEX410v5 was super-consistent in the cold winter conditions.

Team Durango UK’s Paul Robinson was also attending the race, also enjoying some very fast and consistent lap times, on his way to a fourth place finish in the very competitive 2WD ‘A’ Main finals.

Paul raced the recently launched DEX210F, and was happy with the perfectly balanced handling and consistent cornering characteristics of the forward motor race machine.

We send our congratulations to James for a solid victory with the DEX410v5.
