 sc-nationals-2015-rd-3-trophy-presentation

Team Durango Powers The Win

Young Team Durango UK team driver, Jamie Hall, has recently returned from the third round of the UK Short Course Nationals with a victory for Team Durango.

The host track was Telford Model Car Club, based in the West Midlands of the UK, a venue that Jamie and his younger brother Tommy have enjoyed for the last few seasons.

Racing his DESC210 to a solid first place finish against an experienced field of Truck stars, Jamie was really happy to bring home the victory for Team Durango.

Tommy Hall was happy to back-up his brother, by also finishing in the top ten ‘A’ Main, and when you consider that these young guys are still at school, their racing success is all the more inspirational.

Jamie and Tommy continue to enjoy racing Team Durango products and we send our congratulations to them both for a great Short Course result.

Special thanks go to the boy’s parents, who are incredibly;y supportive of their two young race fans.

4wdfinlandsc

The Team Durango 2WD and 4WD Short Course range have recently found huge success in Finland at the first round of their Short Course Winter Cup.

The LRP Arena near Turku hosted an action packed meeting that witnessed what we think may be a new Team Durango record. The ‘A’ main finals across both 2WD and 4WD saw a total of 12 Team Durango Short Course Trucks racing from the total 20 finalists!

The DESC210R claimed four of the ‘A’ main final positions with Mikko Laitinen taking second overall. Tommi Tervo took third spot with Mikko Mäkelä finishing fourth overall.

2wdfinlandsc

In 4WD it was to be a really great day of racing for those drivers who chose the precision manufactured DESC410v2. With eight of the ‘A’ main finalists driving Team Durango Trucks, it was Tomi Salonen who flew to first overall, followed by Max Söderlund who placed third,  Eeli Vieno who finished fourth and yet another DESC410v2 in fifth, piloted by Tom Thusberg.

Not only did our friends in Finland show how popular Team Durango Short Course Trucks are, they also showed how one manufacturer can help ignite a whole racing class when the product is fast in the hands of all ages and abilities.

We send our congratulations to our dedicated supporters over in Finland, and send sincere thanks to everybody who contributed to such a fun and exciting first round of the Short Course Winter Cup.

hallkidspitmats2013

Jamie and Tommy Hall have recently set a new standard that will inspire all young  off-road racers. Jamie was recently crowned the 2013 Junior 2WD Short Course Champion, with his younger brother Tommy also finishing high in the season rankings. Both young racers also concluded their 2013 Short Course season by finishing in the top ten of the overall BRCA National series, right next to the adult competitors! This will be the third BRCA title that Jamie has won over as many years.

We are extremely excited to announce that Jamie Hall will now be joining our UK racing team, bringing another champion into the Team Durango family. Tommy Hall will also be joining the team, as we look forward to supporting these two young racers over the next action packed season of racing.

Jamie and Tommy are already a great example of the future of off-road racing, and a quick look into their family heritage shows us that their Mother was a National full-scale dirt oval champion. Their Father was involved in full-scale auto-cross for many years also. The Hall family are definitely ‘Serious About Racing’, and we welcome them to the team.

Shane drove the DEX210, DESC210R and DESC410v2 during the event and was able to show his dedication to the brand that is ‘Serious About Racing’ by beating a vast field of local talent, many of whom had also opted to utilise the world-class precision engineered products from Team Durango.

Avid Team Durango fan Angus Mcleod came overall first in 2WD Short Course with his DESC210R. Kelly Churchill was the highest placed female racer at the event, choosing Team Durango Race Ready RTR vehicles to put her straight into the top 20 listing in what was only her fourth ever race meeting since joining the hobby a short while ago!

Team Durango South Africa have recently returned from the fourth round of their domestic National series with a collection of great results.

Long-time Team Durango supporter and South African team driver Jaco van Eeden partnered young local star Eben Coetzee in a superb display of off-road racing skill. The event was held at the ever popular Avion RCX in Kempton Park, Gauteng, South Africa, and attracted some of the countries top off-road drivers.

Jaco and Eben set a blisteringly fast early pace with both drivers taking TQ honours in their chosen truck classes. Jaco was very happy to pilot his DESC410 Short Course truck to take a convincing TQ in the 4WD truck class. Eben was really on form during the qualifying rounds and took TQ place in the 2WD Short Course  class with his DESC210R vehicle.

Eben was clearly an ‘A’ main pace-man in both 2WD and 4WD buggy as he continued his recent winning ways with podium places in both classes. Jaco was also serious about podium finishes in the buggy classes as his experience and aggressive driving style also gave him top spots in 2WD and 4WD. Local Team Durango supporter Llewellyn Grobler was also feeling the benefit of precision engineered racing products as he followed his countrymen into the winners circle.
