2014 German Triple National Title – Team Durango 

The 2014 double EFRA European Champion, Jörn Neumann, has struck again with another prestigious off-road race title victory.

Jörn has just returned from the German 1/10 Off-Road National Championships, taking first overall in 4WD Buggy with his DEX410v4, and also taking first overall in Short Course with his DESC410v2.

Despite wet conditions, that plagued the Buggy practice and qualifying rounds during the first day of this two day competition, Jörn was able to take TQ with his DEX410v4 and DESC410v2 vehicles. This double victory also included an almost faultless start-to-finish win in the ‘A’ Main finals in both classes, leaving the competition some ten seconds in his wake.

Founder Team Durango legend, Gerd Strenge, was also able to secure a very pleasing victory, racing his DEX410v4 in the stock class. This gave Team Durango a clean sweep of German National victories, taking all three classes home for the 2014 season.

We send our sincere congratulations to Jörn and Gerd for an awesome performance at the German National finals.

Collinson – 2014 BRCA Regional Champion 

Team Durango UK racing star Craig Collinson has recently returned from the final round of the 2014 BRCA North East Regional Series with two solid first place finishes.

Craig won the final round of the annual 4WD regional series with his DEX410v4, winning every qualifier, to finish with the overall TQ position and first place on the podium. Craig also won all qualifying rounds in the fiercely competitive 2WD class, again gaining overall TQ and the first place podium finish for Team Durango.

This double win for Craig, at the final round of the 2014 series, secures Craig the 2014 BRCA North East Regional Championship crown.

Young Team Durango driver, Jack Hirst, was not far behind Craig on the route to racing success, qualifying second overall in 4WD, and then racing a very solid ‘A’ Main final to finish second overall. At just 11 years old, it is already clear that Jack is going to be ‘mixing it’ with the senior racers next season. Watch out for this rising star during the 2015 regional season.

We send our congratulations to Craig for his great multi-class victory, and also send our sincere thanks to Craig for his on-going support and dedication to Team Durango.

We also send our excited thanks to Jack Hirst for making us smile with an inspirational performance.
