Team Durango racers have returned from the first round of the 2014/15 EOS season in Poland with multi-class podium places.

The fast-paced first round of a series that has previously provided excellent results for Jörn Neumann and his DEX210v2, DEX410v4 and DESC410, was to prove a solid success for all three race machines.

Jörn was pleased to conclude his weekend by taking second overall in both 4WD and 2WD classes, also winning the Short Course class to add to his great performance. Young Polish rising star, Michal Orlowski, was also able to secure top ten finishes for his DEX210v2 and DEX410v4, fifth and ninth place respectively against a experienced field of racers.

image_0

Winning Ways – Neumann & DEX210v2 Take National Victory

Team Durango race star and 2014 EFRA double European Champion, Jörn Neumann, has raced the DEX210v2 to an overall victory at the 2WD German Nationals.

Faced with variable track conditions, including a mix of super-high-grip dry Astroturf and sudden rain storms for a slippery surface, Jörn was happy to qualify second on the grid for the ‘A’ Main finals, allowing him a strong opportunity to utilise the versatility of the DEX210v2.

Jörn won the first two legs of the three stage finals to secure a solid victory for Team Durango, proving the adaptability of the DEX210v2 when the conditions are difficult.

With a strong 2014 race campaign soon drawing to a close, we send our congratulations to Jörn, who continues to excel against the fastest racers in Europe.

DNX8 Prototype Takes Second At German National

Team Durango 1/10 European Champion, Jörn Neumann, has just returned from the second round of the German Nitro Buggy National Series with a solid podium finish for his DNX8 Prototype vehicle.

With heavy rain blighting the weekend of racing for the strong field of Nitro racers, Jörn was able to secure a very pleasing second place finish for Team Durango.

After a strong practice session for Jörn and the upcoming Team Durango Buggy, he was really happy to push forwards and take a first, second and third during qualifying. With heavy overnight rain falling before the ‘A’ Main finals, the race organisers decided to halt the meeting, with racers finishing their National event in the qualifying positions they had achieved.

We send congratulations to Jörn for a good performance in very difficult conditions.

Stay tuned for more DNX8 race pace testing coming very soon.

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.

Neumann Double 2014 Euro Champion

2014 Double European Champions – Jörn Neumann & Team Durango 

2014 EFRA 2WD Eurpean Champion – Jörn Neumann – Team Durango DEX210v2

2014 EFRA 4WD European Champion – Jörn Neumann – Team Durango DEX410v4

Team Durango Off-Road racing star Jörn Neumann has concluded an action packed 2014 EFRA European Championship week by being crowned the double champion.

Having already successfully defended his 2WD Euro crown earlier last week, Jörn set about cementing Team Durango as off-road 1/10 Buggy champions, with his DEX410v4 in the 4WD class.

Jörn was able to hold-fast against heavy racing pressure from the fastest drivers in Europe, showing his calm and calculated racing style serves him excellently when the ‘A’ Main finals are a star studded affair.

 4s6a7685-edit

The DEX410v4 performed amazingly well on the slippery and technical dirt track in Trelleborg,Sweden, providing Jörn with exactly the kind of race-winning characteristics that are required when every second counts.

With strong support from Gerd Strenge in the pits throughout the week of hotly contested off-road action, Jörn was able to concentrate fully on how best to master the challenging in-door dirt conditions, which found many racers struggling to string together consistent lap times.

eur_5795-640x381

Having secured leg one and two of the fast-paced ‘A’ Main final, Jörn elected to sit out the third leg, having already done more than enough to take the title.

Young Polish Team Durango racer Michal Orlowski further added to the successful results by making his first ever European Championship ‘A’ final with his DEX410v4, with a final finishing position of 9th overall. This is a really great result for Michal and his father Matthew, especially as Michal is still only 12 years old!

We send our sincere congratulations and thanks to Jörn for an awesome European Championship performance. We also share our excitement and gratitude to Michal and Mathew Orlowski for a great result. A huge thank you goes to Gerd Strenge who serves as a constant inspiration to the whole team.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our friends at Neo Buggy and RC Racing TV for their world-class event coverage.

Neumann & DEX210v2 Crowned 2014 Euro Champions

4s6a7638-edit

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.

4s6a7483-edit

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.

 Print

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.
