RBR36 Arena to close

RBR36 Arena have announced on Facebook that the iconic Spanish indoor RC Racing facility will unfortunately close down and is unlikely ever to open again. RBR36 Arena have been launched more than 2 years ago by the world champion Robert Batlle and consisted of two tracks, onroad and offroad and a shop in the heart of Barcelona.

Sadly it seems the business is not working fine since some time ago and despite calls for help from Robert to save the situation he did not receive the support needed to hope to continue in good conditions. This sad news confirms the questionable health of the RC business which even offering a promising indoor track facility has not managed to survive 🙁
