After an amazing Race 1, the drama didn’t end there. Adriaan_26 crashed out on the first lap of race two, while Trast73 claimed an early lead from AndreaSaveri11 and PieroRicciuti55 (Ducati Lenovo eSport Team), who was keen to atone for a crash in race one. PieroRicciuti55 was the quickest of the trio however, and soon closed in on Trast73, who was setting an intense rhythm at the front.
On the penultimate lap the Ducati Lenovo eSport Team rider took the lead at turn one, only for Trast73 to show exactly why he is a three-time champion in this series. The Yamaha man responded with a clever move at turn five to retake first almost immediately, a place he would hold to the flag by just 0.2s! AndreaSaveri11 completed an excellent evening of work by coming home third.
As a result of this absorbing action, standings couldn’t be closer after round one. Just eleven points cover the first five riders with Trast73 leading the way on 38 points. AndreaSaveri11 is just two points behind on 36 points, while Adriaan_26 (32 points), PieroRicciuti55 (28 points) and Jack Hammer4658 (27 points) are all right in the mix.
