Robert Batlle nearly makes it 2 European Titles
Hobao International driver and last years European Champion Robert Batlle came within a few seconds of repeating his fantastic acheivement from 2007.
After some exhausting qualifying sessions and semi final racing Robert got into a big battle with Renaud Savoya of France. These two drivers had a great drive and after the 1 hour race Robert just missed out on winning the big prize in Europe for the second time with his Hyper 8.5 PRO.
We would like to thank Robert and also Borja Hernandez who also raced in the main final for their fantastic racing and we wish all the Hobao team good fortune for the World Championships to be held in the USA in September.
