Robert Batlle takes Spanish 1/8th E-Buggy title

The Spanish 1/8th E-Buggy National Championship was held this past weekend at the La Jara club. The event was held on a clay track located in a greenhouse, making for special conditions and atmosphere. After the qualifiers it was Mugen’s Juan Carlos Canas who put his buggy on pole position from Mugen teammate Robert Batlle and TLR’s Oscar Baldo. In the opening 10-minute A-main it looked like Carlos could be able to challenge Robert for the win but once the record multi-national champion checked out, he would ultimately grab a 3-seconds win from from Juan Carlos in second and Carlos Pineda in third. A2 was an even more dominant affair with Robert coming out one lap ahead of Canas despite loosing the rear wing of his Mugen. With the overall win and title already secured before the final A-main, Robert opted to sit out A3, making way for Juan Carlos who cemented his vice championship with a win over Bryan Baldo. Overall and behind Robert and Juan Carlos, Carlos Pineda (Team Associated) would round out the top 3 result.
