Robert Batlle joins Team Associated

2007 European Champion and 2008 IFMAR World Championship finalist, Robert Batlle has signed on to represent Team Associated and Factory Team products. Formerly racing for Hobao, Batlle brings an impressive resume to the Team and now at the controls of the Factory Team RC8, looks to take the next step in his career. Batlle joins BRCA Champion Neil Cragg as a top racer for Team Associated in Europe and will also work closely with Craig Drescher of England. Upon learning of Batlle’s signing Drescher had this to say, “I don’t know Robert very well on a personal level, but his results are very impressive and I look forward to working with him to build the Associated name in 1/8th European racing”. Batlle will also be working with Team Associated’s Spanish distributor Fasol to increase the exposure of Team Associated and Factory team products across Europe. When asked what he is most excited about in joining the 23 time World Championship winning team, Batlle had this to say:

I want to drive for a top team and working with Team Associated brings that. I am really anxious to start the 2009 season leading towards the 2010 World Championships.  Thank you for this opportunity and I hope to win many championships with Team Associated.

First on the list for Batlle is The Dirt Nitro Challenge hosted by the famous Nitro Pit in Wittmann, AZ.  Here he will join fellow Team Associated IFMAR World Finalists Ryan Maifield and Ryan Cavalieri in kicking off the season’s major events.
