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.

Jörn Neumann – 2014 EFRA European Champion – 2WD Electric Buggy

Team Durango racing star, Jörn Neumann, has raced to an overall first place finish at the 2014 2WD Off-Road European Championships with the DEX210v2.

Jörn was able to secure three TQ round wins during the five round qualifying session, putting him second on the grid in the prestigious ‘A’ Main final. After a fierce battle with the fastest drivers in Europe, including long-time rival Lee Martin, Jörn raced to a leg two and three win with his DEX210v2, putting the defending ace straight back on the top spot as 2014 2WD European Champion.

The Trelleborg track surface was indoor dirt, creating a racing environment that was best suited for rear motor configuration 2WD cars. Neumann was thrilled to take his virtually box stock DEX210v2 to victory on the slippery dirt surface, showing that the DEX210v2 is the most versatile 2WD Electric Buggy package commercially available to the racing community.

Notice we stated ‘virtually box stock’.

So we now can share some very exciting preview news.

Team Durango are excited to announce a new additional layer of design philosophy, harking back to Gerd Strenge’s bespoke engineered craftsmanship, which will result in a supplementary range of option parts to take your car to a new level of optimisation.

To focus your Team Durango vehicle on a specific track application, our new range of option parts will allow you to permanently transform your race machine to gain ‘on point’ performance. These selected option parts require some basic modelling skills, with minor modifications needed to your stock kit car. Gerd created the early Team Durango cars in this way, often hand-finishing items for a super-bespoke fit and finish.

Jörn was able to use an early version of just one new option part, to create a DEX210v2 that was completely focused for winning on the difficult low-grip dirt track. Jörn has won this ultra-competitive race using our new targeted performance rear bulkhead, designed for the DEX210v2 in rear motor configuration.

Now we have proven our early concept, stay tuned as we prepare this new part for public release, allowing you the opportunity to turn your Team Durango vehicle into an even more focused race-winning machine.

More ‘on point’ optimisation to follow.
