After much speculation about his future, multiple European Champion Hupo Honigl has been confirmed at Team C. Having announced that he was leaving Durango some weeks ago, the Austrian racer now joins the Absima Team C Europe racing team and will not only strengthen their race team but help with the development of Team C’s line of offroad cars. Hupo had this to say:
First of all I would like to say thank you to Team Durango for the support over the last couple of years. It was a great time and I would do everything in the same way again! It was a really hard decision, mainly because of the teamwork with my friends Gerd Strenge and Jörn Neumann and also the rest of the awesome crew at the racetrack! Now I´m looking forward to a new Chapter! I appreciate the pleasant welcome from Stephen Shih and Jürgen Laux to my new home Team C. In the first year i would like to concentrate on racing 1/10 offroad mainly in Europe – if there is any spare time some 1/8th buggy and maybe some electric touring car. Full of motivation I can´t wait for the first race with my new rides!
