img_0143

Lestr Cup Round Three – Novotny is Triple Winner

2WD Buggy – Winner and overall TQ – Kaja Novotny – DEX210v2

4WD Buggy – Winner and overall TQ – Kaja Novotny – DEX410v4

Short Course Truck – Winner and overall TQ – Kaja Novotny – DESC410v2

Czech Team Durango off-road star, Kaja Novotny, has returned from the third round of the Lestr Cup with a triple class win, including three TQ finishes and three fastest laps.

With Kaja already having a strong reputation for winning multiple classes in one race event, it was no surprise to see the young star dominating qualifying in 2WD and 4WD Buggy. Kaja was happy to secure overall TQ with his DEX210v2, switching to his DEX410v4 in 4WD to repeat this super-fast performance.

Kaja stamped his winning ways on both Buggy finals by winning the ‘A’ main finals in both classes! posting two fastest laps in the process.

Not content with an already great double result, Kaja set his sights on securing an overall TQ in the Short Course class qualifying rounds, adding the overall win to complete his triple first place results for Team Durango.

The event was also made an even more satisfying trip for Kaja and his father Karel, as young rising star Kate Kalvodova was to take a third place podium finish in the Hobby class with her DEX410v4.

Jindra Kodad was happy to race his DEX210v2 to a second place podium finish in the 2WD Hobby class, concluding a Team Durango performance that should inspire all young racers for the exciting year ahead.

We send our sincere thanks and congratulations to Kaja, Karel, Kate and Jindra. What a great start to their 2015 race campaign.

Leo Lorenzen Supports Local Club Racers

Team Durango – Supporting Club Racers To Build Success

Team driver and general Team Durango aficionado, Leo Lorenzen, has recently spent some quality time supporting his local racing clubs, helping them get the best from their Team Durango products.

Leo is based in Tasmania and also ventures across to the Australian mainland to race at large-scale 1/10 and 1/8 events. Having recently also taken on the challenges of racing 1/10 Touring Car, with the DETC410, Leo is a true multi-class driver. This allows him to share a huge amount of kit build and set-up knowledge, a perfect opportunity  to give advice to owners of our products. This friendly input is helping them get faster on the track and more efficient in the pits.

Leo recently visited Goodwood Off-Road Club and also made a valuable appearance at Launceston Racing Club, to support the members during their busy events. Both clubs already have a strong Team Durango following.

Leo was keen to state that he enjoys spending time with local racers, also battling on the track with a wide spectrum of ability levels and age groups. Leo is always very happy to help new racers and also share more detailed Team Durango vehicle tips with experienced drivers.

Leo currently races the DEX210v2, DEX410v4, DEX408v2, DNX408, DEX408T, DESC410v2 and DETC410, so knows a thing or two about the products we create.

Racing Towards the Future With You

Team Durango – Re-Focus & Exciting Future Plans

Dear Customer,

It’s the time of year where we review the season and plan for the future, so we would like to share with you our strategy for 2015 and beyond.

2015 will be a massive year for Team Durango; we have several important and exciting product launches on the way. So it’s more important than ever to make sure we support our racers and our fans.

The race scene is changing and that requires a change of strategy to best meet the needs of our hugely valued customers.

Local racers are getting more sophisticated, more knowledgeable, local racing is getting tougher, the thirst for knowledge at this level has never been higher; social media and information sharing between our customers is now the norm. At the same time the big national and international events are often becoming less relevant to our customers.  We all love to watch the Pros battle it out at the big events, but do these one off races help us make a good product for you?  Upon reflection we don’t think so; testing, analysis and hard work do.

With the World Championships behind us, the new season and exciting product ahead, it’s time for Team Durango to re-focus on product development and helping you win at your local track, rather than having paid Pro racers competing for national and International titles.

The following plans will take us all into an exciting future.

  • We will re-focus on local club racing; we will help you be part of a supportive Team Durango community. This will mean over the next few months we dissolve our Pro race team and replace it with a new race team program that helps support local racing.
  • We will ccontinue to improve our parts support over the coming months to allow you to get everything you need, exactly when you need it
  • We will increase our community support through social media and public RC forums to give you access to everything you need, to get the very most from Team Durango products.
  • We will increase the opportunities for you to stay connected with other Team Durango racers, sharing your experiences and learning new skills from like-minded racers.  We will overhaul our local team driver program; expect more news on this soon.
  • We will release 5 all-new Team Durango cars over the coming months, including our exciting and innovative Patent Pending 1/8 Electric and Nitro Buggy platforms. These exciting vehicles further cement our commitment to a solid future of racing and development for Team Durango.
  • We will stay committed to creating high-quality, cutting-edge, RC racing products, which always look cool and are always hot on the track.
  • We will continue to develop all of our cars via ongoing testing and user feedback, as we have always done, but more so. We will maintain a strong line-up of precision racing machines that cater for the most popular RC disciplines.

Stay tuned for more news, the future for Team Durango is going to be more exciting than ever.
