Robert Batlle takes 6th Spanish title

Robert Batlle takes 6th Spanish title

Last weekend the last round of Spanish 1/8 Off-Roads Nats was held at Fuencarral close to Madrid. Under typical summer weather, 122 drivers took part in the race. Robert Batlle was the main favorite for the title as a 4th place in the race would be enough to secure his 6th consecutive National title. Also Borja Hernández and Richi Gómez were involved in the fight and they had serious options finishing ahead Batlle. After a slow first heat, Robert Batlle was first in Q2 and Q3, taking the TQ, followed by Bryan Baldó and Borja Hernández. The A Main saw a close fight between Batlle and Alberto García who was racing at his home track. Finally Robert managed to get a good pace and opened a gap over Alberto García who finished second ahead former European Champion Dani Vega, also racing on his home track. With this result Robert takes his 6th Spanish National title followed by Borja Hernández and Richi Gómez.
