Neumann & Strenge win German Nats

Durango German Nats

The 2014 double EFRA European Champion, Jörn Neumann, has struck again with another prestigious off-road race title victory. Jörn has just returned from the German 1/10 Offroad National Championships, taking first overall in 4WD Buggy, and also taking first overall in 4wd Short Course. Despite wet conditions, that plagued the practice and qualifying rounds during the first day of this two day competition, Jörn was able to take TQ with his DEX410v4 and DESC410v2 vehicles. This double victory also included an almost faultless start-to-finish win in the ‘A’ Main finals in both classes, leaving the competition some ten seconds in his wake. Founder Team Durango legend, Gerd Strenge, was also able to secure a very pleasing victory, racing his DEX410v4 in the stock class. This gave Team Durango a clean sweep of German National victories, taking all three classes home for the 2014 season!
