Robert Batlle wins challenging Spanish Buggy Nats Rd2

Round 2 of the Spanish 1/8th Nitro Buggy National Championship was held this past weekend at the El Alamo track in challenging conditions. Heavy rain in the build-up to the event meant the club had to work hard to make the race happen but ultimately and after using a lot of sawdust to making the track race-worthy, the event would take place. The opening rounds were held on a very muddy track and the qualifiers would see three different winners in the form of Bryan Baldo, Daniel Vega and Juanma Guillen, however due to incidents on and off the track and penalties given after the qualifiers, none of the three would take the overall TQ that was handed to Robert Batlle from Oscar Baldo 2nd and Ricard Monteiro 3rd. Following a couple of controversies after the semifinals, the 45-minute main final would ultimately take place and in the end it was Robert Batlle with a tone-to-tone win one lap ahead of Oscar Baldo as Oscar Navarro rounded out the top 3, some ten seconds short of Baldo.
