The sixth round of the 2013 Indonesian Regional Championship took place yesterday at the MRCC track in Medan. After the previous 5 rounds, there were only 4 drivers (Asang, Edy St, Patrix, Hari) who still have a chance to win the overall championship. Patrix had to TQ and win this last round race to win, and he did just that! He secured the TQ spot after winning 2 of the 3 qualifying rounds. Asang who lead the championship table before this last race was very fast and TQ’d the last round of qualifying. After a terrible start to the final Patrix who original started first climbed his way back to the front before the first 10 minutes of the 45 minute final and stayed there for the duration of the race. Asang finished in second on the same lap with Edy St taking third. This result allowed Patrix to claim the overall championship with his JQ and Alpha package.

Ryan Lutz has recently returned with a double podium win from the 2014 Fall Brawl race event near Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA. The Team Durango Pro racing star challenged a large field of experienced 1/8 scale racers in Nitro and Electric Buggy classes. Ryan found great success with his brand new DEX408v2, taking first overall and a hard fought TQ place.
The cold weather conditions in Southern Carolina were a challenge for Ryan as he battled through rain and biting wind to also put his DNX408 into TQ position, and then first overall, in the nitro buggy class. This completed a great Team Durango double podium victory for Ryan, as he once again showed his 1/8 racing talents against some of the regions fastest drivers.
