The final round at Dortmund was taking place at the countrys second largest toyfair after Nuremberg – the Intermodellbau, which covered 8 huge hall and would see around 80,000 visitors during the four days it was being held. Many of these visitors gathered to watch the intense race action on the freshly created indoor track – and were treated to a fine display as some of the best drivers in the world battled it out for the wins.
After qualifying, Gerd Strenge sat atop the 2WD Short Course qualifying as he tested the upcoming DESC210R truck – and Jorn Neumann was in full control of the hotly contested 2WD and 4WD buggy, along with 4WD Short Course. The finals saw an intense battle in 2WD buggy between several great drivers – but Jorn came through to win the final two legs for the overall win. In 4WD buggy however Jorn was untouchable and simply drove away from the rest before sitting out the third which was taken by Team Durango’s Hupo Honigl. 4WD SC wrapped up the dominant display from Jorn.
The series turned out to be a great show for Team Durango -with Team Durango drivers winning all classes. Jorn Neumann decisively won 2WD buggy, 4WD buggy and 4WD Short Course – whilst Team Durango designer Gerd Strenge took the overall series win in 2WD Short Course with his test DESC210R chassis.
