Team Durango South Africa – Multiple National Wins


Team Durango South Africa racers have recently returned from the second round of their National 1/10 Off-Road Series victorious.

Young rising star Eben Coetzee piloted his DEX210v2 and DEX410v4 to overall first place in the 2WD and 4WD Buggy classes, also taking solid TQ finishes with both cars against a very fast field of racing talent.

Polokwane JRC Indoor Raceway hosted a busy event, with over half of the attending racers choosing to run Team Durango cars.

Local Team Durango hero Jaco van Eedan was also flying high with his DEX210v2, taking second overall, chasing Eben his team mate, in both 2WD and 4WD Buggy classes. Jaco also piloted his DESC410v2 to a first overall in Short Course to complete a strong race meeting for the Team Durango racers.


We send our congratulations to Team Durango South Africa for a very strong performance at their second round National event. We look forward to seeing more fast race performances over the coming months from Jaco van Eeden and Eben Coetzee.

South Africa – Team Durango Multiple Podiums


Team Durango South Africa have recently returned from the fourth round of their domestic National series with a collection of great results.

Long-time Team Durango supporter and South African team driver Jaco van Eeden partnered young local star Eben Coetzee in a superb display of off-road racing skill. The event was held at the ever popular Avion RCX in Kempton Park, Gauteng, South Africa, and attracted some of the countries top off-road drivers.

Jaco and Eben set a blisteringly fast early pace with both drivers taking TQ honours in their chosen truck classes. Jaco was very happy to pilot his DESC410 Short Course truck to take a convincing TQ in the 4WD truck class. Eben was really on form during the qualifying rounds and took TQ place in the 2WD Short Course  class with his DESC210R vehicle.

Eben was clearly an ‘A’ main pace-man in both 2WD and 4WD buggy as he continued his recent winning ways with podium places in both classes. Jaco was also serious about podium finishes in the buggy classes as his experience and aggressive driving style also gave him top spots in 2WD and 4WD. Local Team Durango supporter Llewellyn Grobler was also feeling the benefit of precision engineered racing products as he followed his countrymen into the winners circle.


The fourth round of the South African Nationals was concluded with a solid Team Durango performance across all racing classes:

2WD Short Course – 1ST – Eben Coetzee – Team Durango DESC210R

4WD Short Course – 1ST – Jaco van Eeden – Team Durango DESC410v2 – 3RD – Llewellyn Grobler – Team Durango DESC410v2

2WD Stock Buggy – 3RD – Llewellyn Grobler – Team Durango DEX210

2WD Modified Buggy – 2ND – Eben Coetzee – Team Durango DEX210 – 3RD Jaco van Eeden – Team Durango DEX210

4WD Modified Buggy – 1ST – Eben Coetzee – Team Durango DEX410v3 – 2ND Jaco van Eeden – Team Durango DEX410v3

We send our congratulations to our colleagues in South Africa for such a great performance.
