DEX410v4 Wins Worksop Indoor Master

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver — Tags: , , , — Stuart @ 9:36 am


Team Durango UK Pro team driver, and previous European Champion, Chris Doughty, has recently returned from the sixth round of the Worksop Indoor Winter Masters in the UK, victorious.

Chris attended the ever-popular indoor race meeting with the goal of building on his fast pace in previous rounds. His DEX410v4 provided the fastest lap of the ‘A’ main final and an overall win for Team Durango in the 4WD Buggy class. Chris also battled hard in 2WD Buggy with his DEX210v2 to take third overall against the regions fastest off-road racers.

Chris was keen to share these words with Team Durango fans:

Running my DEX210v2 and DEX410v4 cars at the previous two rounds and getting pretty decent results I was going into this event with more and more confidence each time.

I didn’t have the best of qualifying, I ended up third in 4WD and fourth in 2WD when really I had the pace to TQ both classes.

I knew I was lining up with potentially the fastest cars in the finals.


4WD final starting from third, it was a ‘freight train’ for the first two laps.

When first and second place had made errors and I was able to get by into the lead, right after this spate of crashes from the lead two cars, I was flat-out down the main straight and a car crashed on the next lane and crossed into my path which resulted in a head-on crash. My car shook it off with only superficial damage (a dented body!) and continued just fine. From this point I just put safe laps in to bring it home with the win. Even though I was running safe laps I still ended up with the fastest lap of the race.

My DEX410v4 performed really well on the mixed surface track – Chris Doughty – Team Durango UK

We send our congratulations to Chris for a great performance. The DEX410v4 continues to prove itself as the 4WD that can win on any surface.

Maritime Double Podium For UK Pro Team – Off-Road Wars Series


Team Durango UK Pro Team drivers have returned victorious from the second round of the hotly contested Off-Road Wars Series at Maritime Raceway in Kent.

Ellis Stafford had previously TQ’d and won the first round in 4WD with his DEX410v4, and he was straight back into his winning ways with another overall TQ, and the first place overall in 4WD for this second round meeting. Ellis is really enjoying the pace of the soon to be released DEX410v4 Buggy, and once again showed that he can command the racing pack straight from the start on Maritime’s tight and fast track.


Our very own European Champion, Chris Doughty, was really happy to put his DEX210 in second place after qualifying, against a strong field of regular Maritime ‘A’ finalists. This was to be the first trip Chris would make to the Maritime venue, and he really made the most of his debut performance with a second overall for Team Durango in 2WD.


With a double podium finish across the two classes raced secured, it was also inspirational to see Team Durango’s newest recruit, and one of the youngest racers on the team, Ollie Currie, finishing fourth overall in 2WD and his team mate Fabian Simonini finishing eighth overall in 4WD.

We send our congratulations to the team for a great performance. Ellis continues to build upon his 2013/2014 winter campaign and we look forward to more exciting news from him very soon.

World Championship TQ – Three Top Ten Finishes


Team Durango have returned from the recently staged IFMAR 1/10 Electric World Championship in Chico, California,with an overall 4WD TQ and three top ten finishes.

With a week-long festival of everything buggy based, the fastest racers on the planet were at the Silver Dollar Raceway to battle it out in both 2WD and 4WD off-road race classes. The most prestigious off-road race event in the world was heavily attended by the very best RC manufacturers from across the globe, all eager to show the racing community what they had to offer. Team Durango chose to field seven Pro team drivers, who all race at the very pinnacle of off-road competition each year.


The IFMAR World Championship has already seen several great Team Durango success stories, with past trips bringing a World Championship win for the DEX410 platform in 2009, and a vice World Championship title for the DEX410v3 in 2011. The 2013 event was to be no exception with Team Durango super star Jörn Neumann returning with an overall TQ in 4WD, to once again prove that the DEX410 buggy is a world-class platform.


Jörn was joined in the 4WD A main final by his Team Durango colleagues Ryan Lutz and Travis Amezcua, who gave very fast and professional performances during their qualifying rounds and placed sixth and seventh in the world respectively when all the action was concluded. Jörn was to finish fourth in the world with his DEX410 vehicle.


With amazing support for the whole team from our World Championship Team Manager Chris Doughty, Team Durango are very proud to share the news of their IFMAR campaign, that resulted in three racers placing in the illustrious World Championship top ten in 4WD.


We send our special thanks to our friends at and for their tireless journalistic coverage of the event. Many of their photographs have formed the most colourful and up-to-date documentation of this event we have seen in decades. Well done to you all.

We also send our thanks to all the people who made our team trip to California possible. We salute you all for being ‘Serious About Racing’
