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.

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.

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.

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.
