Race One

The first race of the weekend began with a twist. A few seconds before the start rain began to fall but riders decided to use slick tyres hoping it was just a temporary situation of unstable weather. At the start Elia Sammartin (Team Gazza Racing) pulled away and took the lead of the pack but his lead only lasted for a few corners. Marc Reiner Schmidt (L30 Racing TM Moto) overtook his rival in the main straight moving to the front chased by Thomas Chareyre (SGR Grau Racing), who prevailed over the Italian rider taking the second place.

After a few laps rain started to fall heavily, and riders had to be careful in order to avoid mistakes. Chareyre took advantage of the situation and overtook the German rider. It only rained for a few laps and as track conditions started to improve, Schmidt got his race pace back as well as the lead. Thomas Chareyre tried to take the position back without succeeding. Marc Reiner Schmidt finished the race with a narrow victory over his main rival.

In the Rookie class Julen Avila Cortes (KTM MTR Racing) worked his way up after a tough start and qualified with third place.
