Hall Of Fame Is Open To All – Fame Awaits Every Team Durango Owner


Team Durango super star pro driver Hupo Honigl – A full collection of Team Durango vehicles

One of our favourite elements of being a world-class RC manufacturer is that we get the chance to meet such a diverse range of racers and motor sport enthusiasts. These people are the fuel to our creativity. We are inspired by every Team Durango owner and racer we meet, and we are always excited to learn more about the racers who invest in the winning ways of Team Durango.

With the recent launch of our Team Durango Hall Of Fame, we are feeling even closer to the people who have assisted us in building the International RC network that we all know and love. Every owner of a Team Durango product contributes to the on-going development of our precision manufactured and professionally engineered racing vehicles.

Here at TDHQ we wanted to share with you a very important piece of information. The Team Durango Hall Of Fame is open to everybody. It is not about how fast you race, it is not about how full your trophy cabinet is, it is definitely not about how many Team Durango products you have chosen to purchase. The Hall Of Fame is designed to embrace you all. We want the newcomers to sit next to our pro racers, we want the younger racers to be seen in collaboration with the seasoned veterans. No matter if you own one of our highly successful Race Ready RTR vehicles or a fleet of our genre defining pro kits, we want YOU!

So take your chance today!  Become remembered for your part in the rich and exciting history of the brand who is ‘Serious About Racing’ by sending us your name, place of origin and a nice photograph of your Team Durango vehicles to

Everybody who supports our brand is considered part of our history, are you famous yet?

Share Your Passion For RC With Team Durango – Racers Speak Out


Ben Cosgrove carries our philosophy across the scene every weekend

During the last few months over at TDHQ we have been extremely fortunate to have some great opportunities to learn more about the legions of racers who choose to use Team Durango products. By sharing our knowledge and experience, we all become wiser. This philosophy has contributed to many of the recent additions to our regular product and team driver news articles. We wanted to show our gratitude and respect to the racers who take our products and do with them what we always intend, race fast. As part of our new news and product information media, we recently launched the Team Durango Hall Of Fame. The perfect chance for every owner of a Team Durango product to be recognised and immortalised for their dedication and support.

As we sort through the hundreds of entries we have received, it has become very clear that many of the folks who have already submitted their Team Durango vehicle pictures and details have a little more to say about what we do than we first anticipated! Some of you have shared personal stories about how RC racing has changed your life, whilst others take the opportunity to share their great successes from using Team Durango products. The one thing that shines through from every communication we receive is simple, passion. You all share our passion here at Team Durango, our passion for precision engineering, our passion for high speed competition, our passion for positive community spirit and sharing knowledge.

Team Durango Visit The First Round Of The RCMAG Cup Brushless Tour

Filed under: News,Uncategorized — Tags: , — Stuart @ 1:06 pm


Team Durango France off-road star Gilles Bennardo has returned from Sucy en Brie after the first round of the RCMAG Cup Brushless Tour. Gilles and Team Durango race colleague Jéremy Despaux were racing the class-changing DEX408 buggy platform, this being their first outing with their newly built cars. Both drivers reported that although the competition was staunch in this high profile off-road race meeting, both cars performed extremely well under the freezing cold track conditions.

Gilles has reprted that both racers spent a considerable amount of time testing different shock set-ups and found the Team Durango Big Bore shock units perfect for the precision alterations that they needed during this closely fought race meeting.


The RCMAG Cup is a very well known off-road racing series in France and Belgium, with many of the scenes top racers attending for the mixed surface racing action. With the second round of this very popular series to be held In June in Viglain, we look forward to seeing how our friends from France settle into the winning ways of the Team Durango DEX408.

The Team Durango International racer network continues to grow as the world of off-road RC racing plays host to many Team Durango wins across multiple classes and track surface types.

The prestigious Lestr Cup near Prague has concluded with a complete clean sweep for Team Durango. Team super star Kaja Novotny won every class he raced, and found himself catapulted to instant off-road fame with a truly epic display of talented RC racing.

Kaja had already secured both 2WD and 4WD buggy series titles prior to this fast paced last round. This put him safely in first position in both classes regardless of the results he achieved during the final meeting. This situation only added to the amazing focus that Kaja has when it comes to winning with his Team Durango vehicles. He returned with the following results to complete his total domination of the series final.

Kaja was kind enough to share these very inspirational words with us in the wake of his triumphant multi-class victory:

“Thanks a lot to Team Durango, to all my sponsors and to my parents for such great support, without which it would be impossible to race at this high level for me.  I appreciate it very much, as I know how difficult it is for manufacturers during this problematic economic situation across the world” – Kaja Novotny – Team Durango

Kaja is supported by his dedicated and knowledgeable father Karel Novotny, who is very proud of his achievements both on the race track and beyond. Team Durango would like to congratulate Kaja for his very strong start to the 2013 Team Durango International racing campaign.

Precision engineering combined with a rich racing heritage continues to bring Team Durango global success at all levels of competition. Are you ‘Serious About Racing’?
