Happy Birthday to one one of Retro's all-time best! Rumor is they may change the name of the Checkpoint Cup to The Checkpoint Duran Cup.
 
Enjoy!!

For someone who knows Duran only through the race reports I often see this or that driver claim TQ but when we finally come to the results of the finals I see the same name over and over. Happy Birthday.

It's easy to grow to hate a guy who has so much talent and who wins so many races.

But when that dominating racer is Duran, I just can't do it. He's off the charts one of the nicest guys in all of slot racing.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap
