The JBRL Nitro Series has come to a close for 2014, and the champions have been crowned. TLR celebrates as their team takes home the title in 6 different classes! Adam Drake led the way taking the championship win in the Expert Truggy and E-Buggy classes, while Victor Guerrero dominated both the Intermediate Buggy and Truggy classes. To finish off the TLR win streak, Jose Castelan drove his TLR rides to a successful Sportsman Buggy and Truggy class championship win as well!
The 2014 New Zealand South Island Championship continues, and the most recent events have proved to be a strong showing for Team Durango. Local racers, Mark Bidlake and Lee Thomas, have successfully brought home multiple TQ’s and overall victories in the 2wd Buggy, 4wd Buggy, and 1/8 E-Buggy classes. We suspect this won’t be the last of the Team Durango success in New Zealand, as the support of local racers such as this only continues to grow.
