Antoine Rossetti – Team Durango France Representing To The Fullest

zoomantoine

Team Durango France are part of our International drivers network. Headed up by French National podium driver Antoine Rossetti, our colleagues across the English Channel are Team Durango ambassadors at every opportunity. From their lovingly prepared racing cars to their fast track skills, our French team are supporters of everything we create.

We recently had the chance to catch up with Antoine after his early successes during the opening stages of the French domestic National season. Antoine has been kind enough to share some awesome pictures of his Team Durango cars with us. Antoine spend hundreds of hours working on his racing gear and one glance across these images will show just how much attention to detail he dictates.

Antoine is already famous for his vivid body shell colour scheme. You just cannot miss an Antoine Rossetti racing car. His Team Durango DEX210 and DEX410v3 are beautiful examples of how our precision engineered products are the very best money can buy. Fast on the track and a true work of art on the pit table.

Antoine has set such a high standard with the preparation of his Team Durango cars that we are sure he may have even started his own trend! Many racers we meet are already asking for Antoine Rossetti style items. Antoine is not just a Team Durango racer, he is clearly a big supporter and promoter of our products. His track performance further cements his status as a Team Durango global affiliate.

Our French colleagues are already making a big impression across Europe. After a recent discussion with Antoine we are very excited to confirm that he will be racing for Team Durango at the upcoming 10th scale off-road European Championships and the World Championships later this year in California.

paulrhof

The Team Durango Hall Of Fame allows you to join the ever growing ranks of fans who choose the brand who is ‘Serious About Racing’. We have received hundreds of amazing photographs that show how dedicated you all are to representing Team Durango all over the world.

The increasing trend we are noticing is just how many of our fans own multiple Team Durango vehicles. Many of you are already the proud owners of two or more of our precision manufactured racing platforms. Whether you race 10th scale off-road with 2WD and 4WD or 8th scale nitro vehicles, it seems that once you all go Team Durango there really is no going back. This inspires us to continue to create a diverse range of racing products that always gives the racer exactly what they need.

hofnewssplash002

Ever since Team Durango created the very first production racing vehicle there has always been something different about the way we choose to do things. Whether it be the styling of our body shells, the configuration of our chassis lay-outs or the engineering that we have created within our Hybrid Technology 2WD gearboxes, every item we produce just screams innovation.

Like all pioneers and innovators, we are sometimes open to criticism as much as we are gracious in the wake of acclaim. The one thing we will never change our opinion about is simple. We could not be Team Durango without you. If you are reading this article we already consider you part of the team.

With a strong focus on always wanting to give you guys and gals something back, we launched our Team Durango Hall Of Fame nearly two months ago. We continue to receive beautiful photographs every day, and are always really excited to read some of the amazing words you all share with us.

“My Dad says that he remembers when RC cars were all the quality of the DEX410. He shows me how to change my motors and build my shocks” – Tom Bolding – Plymouth – UK

Share Your Passion For RC With Team Durango – Racers Speak Out

oop_2852

Ben Cosgrove carries our philosophy across the scene every weekend

During the last few months over at TDHQ we have been extremely fortunate to have some great opportunities to learn more about the legions of racers who choose to use Team Durango products. By sharing our knowledge and experience, we all become wiser. This philosophy has contributed to many of the recent additions to our regular product and team driver news articles. We wanted to show our gratitude and respect to the racers who take our products and do with them what we always intend, race fast. As part of our new news and product information media, we recently launched the Team Durango Hall Of Fame. The perfect chance for every owner of a Team Durango product to be recognised and immortalised for their dedication and support.

As we sort through the hundreds of entries we have received, it has become very clear that many of the folks who have already submitted their Team Durango vehicle pictures and details have a little more to say about what we do than we first anticipated! Some of you have shared personal stories about how RC racing has changed your life, whilst others take the opportunity to share their great successes from using Team Durango products. The one thing that shines through from every communication we receive is simple, passion. You all share our passion here at Team Durango, our passion for precision engineering, our passion for high speed competition, our passion for positive community spirit and sharing knowledge.
