Acosta waited for the right moment to attack his rivals, after the halfway point of the race and since then began to pull to enter solo at the finish line, almost three seconds ahead of Canet and nearly four over Augusto Fernández, who by entering ahead of the Japanese Ai Ogura (Kalex) increased his lead in the provisional world championship by two points.

The author of the best practice time, Augusto Fernández did not fail at the start, while behind him Alonso López (Boscoscuro) also started like an exhalation but in the second corner of the track and when trying to avoid another driver ended up on the ground at a point where several other drivers also ended up off the track and the German Marcel Schrotter (Kalex) crashed like the Spaniard.

Alonso Lopez no significant damage occurredbut he was also unable to continue in a race in which Augusto Fernández began to set a strong pace that allowed him to achieve an advantage of almost half a second over the British Jake Dixon (Kalex) and the Spanish Arón Canet.

On the second lap another fall, this time by the Spanish Albert Arenas (Kalex) in turn twelve when he was fifth and had started from the front line of the formation. In that same curve they also went down the drain when yellow flag waved on track for the fall of Arenas, the Spaniards Jeremy Alcoba (Kalex) and Manuel González (Kalex).

Third lap of the race and the advantage of Augusto Fernández was already almost a second and a half over Dixon and Canet, with Pedro Acosta in fourth place after beating the Italian Tony Arbolino (Kalex), who was also in that group along with the Japanese Ai Ogura (Kalex), the American Joe Roberts (Kalex), the Spanish Jorge Navarro (Kalex) and the Thai Somkiat Chantra (Kalex).

One lap later Arón Canet and Pedro Acosta decided take action and overtake Dixon to try to catch up with Augusto Fernández, who by then already had a lead of more than 1.6 seconds.

Pedro Acosta gave a first evidence of his intentions by mark the fastest race lap on the sixth lap to reduce the difference with his teammate Augusto Fernández from 1.6 to 1.2, with Arón Canet close to his slipstream, Tony Arbolino sailing in no man’s land and a little further behind the couple Jake Dixon and Ai Ogura . and a trio formed by Fermín Aldeguer (Boscoscuro), Jorge Navarro and Somkiat Chantra.

An error by Pedro Acosta was taken advantage of in the ‘corkscrew’ by Aragón Arón Canet to get second and be the one to shoot to catch Augusto Fernández, who was only half a second away and with whom they did not take long to link up. Just one lap later, in the ninth, Acosta, who had returned the overtaking to Canetthey were already glued to the leader of the race and the championship, as Arbolino did shortly after.

Pedro Acosta did not take long to try to assume the leader rolein the tenth lap, when it was the turn of “Tiburón” from Mazarrón to set the pace and stretch that leading quartet again.

This is how a good part of the race went, with Pedro Acosta setting the pace, Augusto Fernández and Arón Canet “holding up” as best they could, but further and further from the leader of the race who was on his way to getting his second victory of the season , after that of Mugello (Italy).

At some point in his career, Fernández had to assess his options and approach with the world title in mind and perhaps that is why he opted for maintain second place that gave him some very important points in the championship with respect to his immediate pursuer, the Japanese Ai Ogura, who was fifth, while a victory for his teammate Acosta did not represent any problem in terms of the world championship.

With less than three laps to go, Arón Canet attacked Augusto Fernández to take second place, although without material time to try to reach Pedro Acostawho had almost three seconds ahead, so the final order was that, with Ai Ogura fourth and Tony Arbolino in fifth position when the British Jake Dixon crashed.
