Juan Carlos Canas wins Spanish Nitro Buggy Nats Rd2

Round 2 of the Spanish Nitro Buggy National Championship was held this past weekend at the Fuencarral track near Madrid. Young Juan Carlos Canas (Mugen) would sweep the qualifiers to take the overall TQ from Ignacio Candel (HB Racing) and Oscar Navarro (Mugen). Jose T. Escurdero (Team Associated) came in 4th while record national champion, Robert Batlle (Mugen) suffered a troubled qualifying due to engine problems, meaning he would finish the qualifiers only in 5th place. The main final then was mainly an affair between the Mugen team mates Juan Carlos and Robert but the race was ultimately decided by a controversial referee call that left Robert Batlle with a penalty after what is understood to be some sort of unsafe behaviour in the pit lane. The somewhat confusing situation promoted Juan Carlos Canas into the 1st place with Robert on the runner-up spot. Bryan Baldo (TLR) secured the final podium spot in front of his brother Oscar Baldo (TLR) who had to settle for 4th.
