Se ha disputado la 4ª prueba del cto. Holandés de 1/8 TT en Friesland. Este circuito está completamente hecho en hierba artificial.

La nota predominante de la primera jornada fue el fuerte viento que hacía muy complicado volver a posar el coche tras los saltos que se convirtió posteriormente en lluvia.

La prueba disputada en el Circuito de Alhaurín de la Torre (Málaga) daba el pistoletazo de salida a la temporada 2012  del Cto. España 1/8 TT.

90 pilotos viajaron hasta Málaga, con la vista puesta en la predicción del tiempo. Finalmente la meteorología dio un respiro y “sólo” aguó literalmente la 3ª manga clasificatoria.

En lo estrictamente deportivo, Robert Batlle fue el dominador de la prueba, logrando la pole y una incontestable victoria.

Despite the name “summer” the weather was not good, and the heavy rain, made the organizators postpone the race to Oct 1st and 2nd.

However, on mid Sunday the track was allright and there was a lot of drivers willing to race. So that still keeping in mind the new dates, they did a small race with 5 min qualyfing and 30 min. final.
