See: Nemo Racing

Once again, this past weekend, the NemoRacing team were back at the track situated at the race track in Pembrey, Llanelli, Wales. We had a lovely start to the weekend, the boys were down on the Friday evening setting up our tables ready to offer our drivers support. Everything got sorted quite early on, so there was plenty of time for a cheeky Nandos! The first day of practice and our drivers looked really good on the track. Darren Bloomfield and Joni Skidmoore both ran in high positions for the majority of practice and qualifying rounds, which was fantastic to see.

The 2017 1/8 FEMCA Championships will return to Australian soil this year, more precisely at the Model Off Road Buggy Club (MORBC) from October 4-8, in Perth, WA. If you’re getting that deja vu feeling, it is because the same event was held at the MORBC just 2 years ago.

The FEMCA event in 2015 was an absolute cracker of a show, and kickstarted the push for MORBC to host the upcoming 2018 IFMAR 1/8 Off Road Worlds next year, potentially the biggest RC event to come to Australian soils in a very long time! 

If you haven’t been to MORBC before, check out this awesome promotional video:

Team Durango will then be less and less present in competition and generally on the international scene, less mediaized than before and despite its notoriety Team Durango will not have succeeded to regain its place on the market.
