Team Durango has picked up a couple great drivers to join their team. First up (and this has not been officially confirmed), young
Australian wonder kid Kyle McBride looks to have made the move to Durango. If confirmed, which looks likely, he will be the 3rd major offroad driver driver to leave Mugen over the winter and will join the Durango international team.
Next up is multiple European Champion and Worlds finalist, Renaud Savoya, who will be joining their international race team for the 2011 season. Reno is regarded as one of the most gifted and friendly drivers in RC today. Here is what he had to say:
“Like I said a few days ago, The Shark is ready to bite! Starting January 2011, I will race under the Team Durango flag! Everybody at Team Durango has shown me incredible motivation and professionalism. Thanks to the technical team and the drivers; we will focus on producing the best cars on the market. Everyone at Team Durango is ‘Serious About Racing’. I’m really excited with this move and I look forward to race Team Durango for the near future, and of course, win! I will race 1/8 buggy (nitro and electric), 1/8 truggy, 1/10 electric, and the very impressive US style SC. The Team looks impressive and I’m proud to be part of it.”
