TD Life – Second Edition

tdlife

Welcome to the second installment of our new news roundup series, TD Life.

This week we again celebrate some fast track action from our racers, with a strong  focus on team partnerships and future tricks and tips to be shared.

Nuno Roque, long-time Team Durango Portugal racer, has returned from a hiatus that included becoming a father for the second time!  Congratulations Nuno.

On returning to racing competition, Nuno wasted no time in getting back up to speed with his DEX210v2 buggy, earning himself TQ and the 1st place podium spot at the Portugal National Championship!  It was great to see that Nuno showed zero signs of rust from the time off!

A fantastic result for Nuno with his DEX210v2 and for Team Durango Portugal.  Congratulations on such a fine Nationals outing.

It is also great to see successes being had in the Great White North, Canada.  Team Durango Canada racer, Pascal Morin, enjoyed triple podium success at a recent club event held at his home track.

Pascal raced his DEX8, DEX210v2, and DEX410v4 machines to victory, taking a winning triple podium!  Pascal has enjoyed the support of his world-wide teammates in tuning and setup, and overall camaraderie.

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!
