Novotny – Double Win, Double TQ

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver,Young At Heart — Tags: , , , — Stuart @ 1:44 pm


We are delighted to share news of  yet another great result from our Czech Republic Pro team start Kaja Novotny. Kaja recently returned from the sixth round of the Lestr Cup with two first place finishes and two TQ honours, during a fast paced meeting of the fastest talent in his region.

Kaja piloted his DEX210 Buggy to a convincing first place, and was fast enough to defend his position against the attacks of Jiri Mara to be crowned overall TQ in 2WD.

Kaja then fixed his focus on the Short Course class with his DESC410R, sending his rivals back to the pit area after qualifying with them in no doubt that Kaja was determined to take his winning ways to another double podium. Kaja concluded his Short Course efforts with the win and overall TQ.

Two classes, two TQs, two overall firsts. Job Done for Team Durango.

We send our congratulations to Kaja and his father Karel for another high-quality performance.

Team Durango Short Course Trucks – Big Hit In Finland

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Young At Heart — Tags: , , , , — Stuart @ 2:39 pm


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.


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.

Team Durango New Zealand – ‘Serious About Racing’

Filed under: Hall Of Fame,News,Team Driver — Tags: , , , , , — Stuart @ 9:26 am


Team Durango New Zealand, headed by long-time supporter and off-road super star Shane O’Connor, have recently returned from the New Zealand North Island Champs victorious.

Shane was racing on fast form during this very popular multi-class off-road racing event. He was representing Team Durango in 2WD Buggy, 2WD Short Course and 4WD Short Course, as well as supporting the throngs of excited Team Durango fans who had chosen our vehicles to do battle at the prestigious event. With four days of intense competition completed, Shane was extremely happy to come home with an overall TQ in 2WD Buggy, 2WD Short Course and 4WD Short Course!

Not a racer to settle with anything but total victory, Shane then powered home for an overall first in 2WD Buggy and 4WD Short Course to stamp the Team Durango livery across the time sheets in style.


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!


Shane was really happy to also report that the DEX410v3 was fast at the Counties RC venue in Auckland. Taking four of the top ten positions in 4WD Buggy, the DEX410v3 found the dry dirt track surface easy to navigate for final positions of  second, third and fourth overall.


With 166 racers battling for off-road supremacy, it was Shane O’Connor and Team Durango New Zealand who dominated all race classes. Team Durango New Zealand are clearly ‘Serious About Racing’.
