 kajaublethirdmibo001

Double High-Grip Podium Success – TD Take Two Spots

Czech Team Durango race star, Kaja Novotny, has recently returned from an action-packed second round clash, at the prestigious Mibosport race series.

Nursing a bad cold, Kaja was keen to get straight into running both 2WD and 4WD 1/10 classes, attempting to set early podium pace, so he could allow himself some easier laps later in the meeting.

The high-grip carpet track was fast and challenging, with Kaja weaving his way up to third overall in 2WD, repeating this performance in 4WD.

Kaja was very pleased to hit the podium twice during this meeting, with a heavily skilled field of over 120 racers attending.

We send our congratulations to Kaja and his father Karel for a solid double podium success at this fast-paced event.

Novotny Races Two Events on One Day – Four Wins Confirmed

Kaja Novotny has concluded his Czech National campaign with an impressive double podium win for Team Durango.

This allowed Kaja to wrap up the Nationals series and become double championship winner at the fifth round of his domestic 1/10 championship.

Racing his DEX210 and DEX410, Kaja was very happy to win both classes, boosting his previous winnings streak and taking the dual title honours easily.

In a truly unique turn of organisational management, the venue also held the second round of the Czech Indoor Open Challenge on the same day, with Kaja also racing in that time table. In between National heats!

Not just doubles, today was a quad podium winning success

With his Team Durango race machines not having time between rounds to even cool down, Kaja stormed to a double class win, making it one day of racing and four victory places.

With so many competitive racers attending the Czech indoor winter meetings, it is great to see Kaja locking out two prestigious podiums, all on one day.

Our sincere congratulations go to Kaja and his father Karel for a solid performance.

More Race Action & Community News – Edition Four – 2015

Wow! … That is about all that can be said about this week’s racing action from our team guys, as well as our loyal racing fans and friends living the #TDLife.

Just fantastic racing across the board this week folks.  More National titles, more series podiums, IFMAR Worlds action, and families getting in on the fun.

This edition has a truly international flavour, as the #TDLife continues to bring truly inspirational news.  Let’s get to it!

First off, we would like to wish the greatest of successes to our main USA representative, Travis Amezcua. Peanut is currently hitting the turf in Japan, at the Yatabe Arena, for the IFMAR World 1/10 Buggy Championships.

With the Team Durango design studio always pushing to develop our race machines, it will be very interesting to see how Travis does with some excellent-looking vehicles in his hands, on this extremely high-traction track.

Fresh body shells for Travis ‘Peanut’ Amezcua for the IFMAR Worlds

Congratulations are now in order for Frank Hempel who recently raced his DESC210R to a 1st place podium finish.

This was accomplished at Rennstrecke, Germany, in the final round of the Rennstrecke Off-Road Cup.  Nicely done, showing the world how Team Durango vehicles can dominate a race track.

Now with another 1st place podium, experienced TD racer Romain Valter gets things done with his DNX8 1/8 Nitro Buggy at his home track of Reims, in France.

Enjoying the ease of tuning and set-up, Romain can spend more time on the track practicing instead of time in the pits wrenching, resulting in fine finishes like this.  An excellent result and job very well done.

Moving northward, we head back to Canada this week for a series podium trophy shot.  Mr. Ken Deline of Team Durango Canada/Team Great Hobbies, has pulled off an excellent 2nd place series podium in the Durham Off-Road RC Club series with his DEX8T 1/8 electric Truggy.  Ken has very much enjoyed his Team Durango vehicles this season, since his switch from another brand, experiencing new successes every week.

He has enjoyed them so much that he is adding to his fleet and getting back to his roots with a DNX8 1/8 nitro buggy and I’ve also heard that he plans some on-road this winter with a DETC410.

Thanks for all your hard work all season long, Ken, and we wish you every success moving into the indoor season.

Now, moving slightly southward, our man in Michigan, USA, Mike Lopes, is getting things done again.

Mike enjoys the #TDLife to the full, especially when it comes to Short Course racing and his DESC10 4wd SCT.

Mike recently tore up the pack with his DESC10, taking a TQ and 1st place podium finish.  But, Mr. Lopes is not a one-trick pony, and also managed a 3rd place podium with his DEX210v2 2wd Electric Buggy at the same event, after starting 5th on the grid.  Mike can always be relied upon to lend a hand with set-up on any Team Durango vehicle, and has the experience to help you get faster.

So glad to have you on the team, Mr. Lopes.

Jumping back across the pond, now, to the Manor RC Club in the UK, father and son team Mike and Aaron Nash have podiums of their own.

At a recent club meeting, Mike pulled out a great victory in 4wd buggy with his DEX410v4, while his son Aaron grabbed a 2nd place podium spot in the ‘under-10’ division with his DEX210v2.

So nice to see families racing together, and some excellent father-son bonding time being enjoyed whilst living the #TDLife!

Congratulations go out to both Mike and Aaron for a job well done.

Mike Nash Takes Top Spot

Another father and son duo from the UK, Mark Grainger and his son, also experienced great success this week.  Mark raced with a DEX410v4 to a 3rd overall finish at Oaklands, while his son won his first ever ‘under-10’ trophy as well, also with his DEX410v4!  Again, so nice to see family efforts paying off.

It’s so nice to see fathers and sons racing and enjoying Team Durango race machines together. Keep up the great work guys.

And to finish off this most excellent week in the #TDLife, we have another National Championship title.

This time in the on-road class and with the DETC410, Swiss racer Philipp Huber pulls out a wonderful 1st place podium win in the 5th round of the Swiss National series, solidifying his first place position in the series, giving him the overall win!  Absolutely fantastic results.

Our sincere thanks and congratulations!  (And for those counting, and I am, that’s the second national title for Team Durango in 3 weeks!)

Thanks go out to each and every racer who has enjoyed racing their Team Durango race machines this week!  As this article clearly shows, Team Durango is a worldwide family movement, with talented racers across the globe choosing the #TDLife, racing precision machines to the win.
