The second round was one of three Virtual events that will take place this year. In another change for 2022, there is a revised points-scoring system for these Virtual Rounds. The winner of a race will score 12.5 points, the runner up 10, with third place scoring 8 and so on. MotoGP™´s Jack Appleyard and Jack Gorst combined presenting and commentary duties throughout the hour-long show.
The two tracks disputed in Round 2 couldn’t be more different: Race 1 saw the finalists tackle the stop-start Le Mans in France while Race 2 was be held at the historic TT Circuit Assen in the Netherlands, the scene of last week’s eventful Dutch TT.
The fourth race of the 2022 Global Series was a similar affair to the third. adriaan_26 and trast73 started first and second on the grid. And the victory fight once again came down to that pair. After missing out in the earlier contest, Adriaan_26 was in no mood for second place, and he eventually edged clear to come home 1.3s clear of Trast73 for a crucial win.
It was a close-run thing for second place, with up to four names contesting the final two podium spots. AndreaSaveri11 pushed his compatriot all the way. Eventually the Ectsar Suzuki man came home third, just a handful of tenths clear of LCR Honda’s Cristianmm17.
As a result of this absorbing action, standings couldn’t be closer after round two. Just 21.5 points cover the first five riders with Trast73 leading the way on 60.5 points. Adriaan_26 has moved into second place on 54.5 points, ahead of AndreaSaveri11 on 50.5. Jack Hammer4658 (40 points) and PieroRicciuti55 (39 points) are all right in the mix.
