Mayako has announced former World Champion Robert Batlle as the brand’s Director of Motorsports. Having announced his departure from Mugen last week after 12-years with the Japanese brand, the popular Spaniard now takes up a new role at the 1:8 Buggy class newcomers to join fellow World Champion David Ronnefalk. On announcing the much expected arrival of Batlle, they said, “Mayako would like to welcome World Champion Robert Batlle to the brand as the Director of Motorsports. Robert is passionate about Scale Motorsports, and driven to ensure Mayako succeeds in giving racers the best experience possible. He is going to work with the factory, our Service Centres and drivers from around the world to ensure the community being built will be as successful and beneficial to all as possible. We probably have the fastest company director in the business”!
