Weekly News – TD Life Launches

TD LIFE – WEEKLY NEWS STARTS HERE

#TDLIFE.  What’s in a name?  In this particular name, all that you can imagine, and more.  #TDLIFE is more than a social media slogan, more than a catchy advertising tag, more than the sum of its letters.  It embodies all that we, each and every one of us, strive for in our hobby.

It is speed.  It is design.  It is whole-souled efforts on and off the track.  It is all of us.  The efforts and victories and desires for improvement that we all seek.  It is the community that makes up the global team of vehicle designers, racers, drivers, and fans of Team Durango.

If you’re reading this, you live the #TDLIFE.

So, on to the exciting news that happened over the last couple of weeks!  Globally, Team Durango racers were killing it on the track!  From Europe, Canada, and the USA, there were fine results to be shown using all the latest race machines Team Durango has to offer.

TD’s young super-racer in the Czech Republic, Kaja Novotny, has secured the Czech National title in 1/8 E-Buggy  with a race in hand in the points series!  In round 3 of the 4 round series he managed a TQ and win with the DEX8, placing himself in what is becoming a familiar spot on top of the podium for the young racing star!

Kaja also landed himself in second position for the 3rd round for the nitro 1/8 National series, also solidifying the title for himself and Team Durango!

Well done, young man!

In Canada, Team Durango Canada racer, Ken Deline, also put one of the new Team Durango 1/8 machines on the podium!  Racing at the DORC points series, Ken piloted his DEX8T to a 2nd place qualification and 2nd place podium finish!  Ken has been super consistent with his Team Durango machines since he switched to them for this season!   He loves his TD vehicles!

Ken also managed to qualify 6th in the A-main with his DEX8 and narrowly missing a podium spot, finishing 4th!

Congrats go to Ken with his continued success with the new Team Durango 1/8 super cars!

In the USA, at the Keystone Classic race held at Mushroom Bowl Hobbies and Raceway in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, two Team Durango racers made their mark at the event!

First up, TD USA racer Stuart Lewis pulled off a 2nd place qualifier and a win in 4×4 SCT with his DESC10, as well as a 2nd place qualifier and 2nd place podium spot with his DEX8.   He commented how both vehicles were fast and handling great!  Stuart has been finding great success this season with the new cars!

Secondly, TD USA racer C.J. Heitz, who switched from another brand early in the season, has also been finding speed and success with his TD 1/8 cars.  At the same event he managed an excellent 3rd place qualification and 2nd place podium finish with his DEX8T.  C.J. has also experienced renewed speed and consistency since switching to the new TD cars!
