TD Life – Third Edition

We are very excited to present the third edition of our weekly news update, TD Life.

tdlife

Let’s see how everyone is doing.

In Canada, once again, Team Great Hobbies/Team Durango Canada racer Pascal Morin  much he is enjoying his TD Buggies this season.

Coming straight from a great winning triple podium in club racing last time, he looked forward to attending the Quebec Indoor Off-road Nationals.

The event was held in a large ice arena, following a motocross event a couple weeks before.  The race organisers had Sik Track Designs come in and rebuild the track for some intense RC competition.

Pascal wasted no time getting back into winning form at this large event, pulling out a TQ and a win with his DEX210v2.

Also enjoying his DEX410v4, he pulled into 2nd position in the 4WD class.  He didn’t stop there, as he ran four classes, and managed to make the A-Main show with both his DEX8 and DNX8 Buggies finishing 5th and 7th respectively.

Well done Pascal!  We can’t wait to see how you do with your DETC410, as the indoor on-road season begins for you.

Novotny Podium Assault Continues

Of course, any Team Durango article would not be complete without another mention of European Kaja Novotny.

After clinching the 1/8 E-Buggy and 1/8 Nitro Buggy national titles, the young Czech racing star had another great week, officially grabbing the Czech National Series titles in electric 1/10 2WD Buggy and 1/10 4WD Buggy.

His DEX210 and DEX410 performed flawlessly for him throughout the series with his father, Karel, wrenching away for him in the pits.

Congratulations go out to both Kaja and Karel, as their great efforts have landed them with another title to add to their formidable trophy case.

Bringing The Heat With Justin Roy and his DEX8T 

Moving to the United States, young Team Durango USA driver, Justin Roy, attended the Bring the Heat race in Flowood, Mississippi, USA at the Flowood R/C Indoor Park.

With some big names in the field, young Justin was eager to put his DEX8 and DEX8T machines in a good position heading to the mains.

Qualifying landed him in the B-main so he focused on making clean runs with hopes of bumping into the Triple A-mains.  His focus paid off and he bumped up, allowing him to compete with the top drivers in the big show.

Congratulations on another fine outing with your Team Durango 1/8 electric race machines.  Keep it up, Justin.

Thanks to all of you, and please send us your display photos so we can share with everyone.

I’ll get us started with a sample:

German team drivers have recently returned from the exciting ‘Nitro Meets Electric’ race event at the Rasenracer track with an overall team win for Team Durango.

This unusual race meeting pitted teams of four drivers against each other across two classes, mixing Nitro and Electric 1/8 vehicles into one exhilarating race.

At the end of this unique battle, Team Durango Germany hit the top podium spot for this team event, bringing home the DEX8 and the DNX8 with the winners honours again.
