Neo Buggy reports – “After yesterday’s haze of rumours and speculation we were able to get hold of a Team Durango rep who commented on the current situation with Team Durango and Renaud Savoya, “Yes Reno is leaving Team Durango, on good terms by mutual agreement. He is a great guy and we wish him all the very best in his future and thank him for the time we spent together. Despite his depature we still have a great team of sterngth and depth and will always look forward. This year has been very productive and we’ve been very happy with the car’s results through various drivers around the world in particular at the Euros with two cars in the final running high up until tyre & engine issues affected the result.
NeoBuggy understands that the split was by mutual agreement and came about after a long conversation between the driver and Team Durango. Looking back at Savoya’s unbelievable results from the last 3-4 years its understandable the pressure and frustration that would follow if such results could not be maintained or equalled. On the subject of Elliott Boot’s departure Team Durango declined to comment.”
