Young Czech Stars Take Multiple Podiums

Czech Team Durango race star, Kaja Novotny, has recently traveled to the Berek Cup in Poland, returning with a double podium finish for Team Durango, which included a first place overall for his DEX210v2.

Kaja and his Team Durango colleague Pawal had taken an eight hour journey to race at this event, meaning they were both keen to make the meeting count. Kaja was happy to secure early TQ runs in 2WD, going on to win the ‘A’ Main final. Pawal was happy to take third place in 2WD, also racing his DEX210v2 to the podium finish.

In the 4WD class Kaja was again battling for winners honours, racing hard to take the ‘A’ Main win with his DEX410v4. Pawal was very pleased to post the fastest lap of the day in 4WD with his DEX410v4, concluding a very strong performance from the young Czech team.

The long trip across the boarder was clearly worthwhile for our Czech racers. We send huge thanks to Kaja and Pawal for their solid dedication. We also send big thanks to Kaja’s father, Karel, for making this journey possible.
