Neo Buggy continue their report... "In a battle of track versus car, two time European Champion Robert Batlle can add the World Warm up victory to his long list of accolades. Spending most of the final battling with David Ronnefalk, a combination of better fuel strategy and experienced driving saw him take the win in front of Jared Tebo in 2nd and Ryan Cavalieri 3rd as Ronnefalk supposedly ran out of fuel with a lap to go. It was a solid drive for Tebo as he clawed his way back after a very poor couple of opening laps, spending much of the final racing with his good friend Cavalieri. Reno Savoya was running well up in 3rd, hanging onto the coat tails of Batlle & Ronnefalk, but dropped down a bit, a flame out in pitlane further cost him some time.
TLR's future star Dakotah Phend had a troubled start to the final as his car flamed out on the grid, further bad luck ensued as his pitman Tim Long raced back just as the countdown hit 4, he made the start but the organisers dished out a stop and go for that infringement, which put him last. At the start it was Ryan Cavalieri successfully completing his comeback, after the team discovered he'd been running a centre diff with no oil - the source of his qualifying woes. Cavalieri took the lead on the first lap followed by Savoya, Batlle, Ronnefalk, as mentioned Tebo had a start to forget as he crashed on the far side double double dropping him to 11th. 5 laps in, Cavalieri bobbled which let Savoya through, he'd hang on to 2nd with Ronnefalk & Batlle just behind."
