How do you expand your RC driving career? Easy…..win a World Championship!! What a way to shake up the international 1/10 racing scene by adding the current 1/8th off road World Champion, Robert Batlle. What I’m really stoked on is the fact he is choosing to go with Team Yokomo instead of the typical big 3. GOOD LUCK ROBERT!
Team Yokomo is proud to announce the signing of reigning 1/8 World Champion Robert Batlle to run 2WD & 4WD 1/10 TT electric scale in 2013. Robert starts the year with a new challenge, running with B-MAX2 & B-MAX4 cars of prestigious Yokomo brand, using LRP batteries, motors and speed controllers . This is what Robert has to say about the deal.
“I’m really happy to become part of Team Yokomo, they are a great family and there are a lot of well-known drivers in, one of those obviously Masami-San, the RC legend. It will be a long-term learning process due to it is a completely new class for me, I don’t want to put any goal on myself at the moment, I just want to drive and get used to this class mainly on 2WD. I’m looking forward to start racing on international events. Thank you so much to everyone, all my sponsors, specially Team Yokomo to believe in me.”
