Robert Batlle takes Neo’18 title

After a final famous lap between Robert Batlle (Mugen) and Davide Ongaro (Team Associated) the former World Champion managed to stay in front of the Italian star until the finish line, winning the coveted title of Champion of The Neo Race. The one-hour final will be thrilling from start to finish, offering many twists and many leaders. The race begins with Davide in the lead followed by David Ronnefalk (HB Racing) and Robert. Robert will quickly make a mistake allowing the Davids to fight for the win at the top of the race. At 5-minute mark David will increase his speed, go ahead and slightly widen the gap on Davide. Unfortunately at almost half-time, David will break a gas servo, exactly in the same situation as the 2016 Euro. Same track, same pain … Davide moved into the lead, followed by Reno Savoya (TLR) who avoided the pitfalls of the start of the final to settle in second place but sees Robert begin to get closer to him. At 45 minutes Robert will overtake the French driver and chase Davide. Little by little Robert gets closer to Davide and 10 minutes from the end he goes in the lead. Davide will wait for the right moment to overtake Robert but despite all his efforts and despite an incredible last lap where the two drivers will be neck and neck, Robert will become the champion of The Neo Race 2018. The third place, although strongly defended by Reno, will be for Elliott Boots (Kyosho) who will be able to overtake Reno in the very last minutes.
