Victory in extremis for Scott Deroue
Although Carrasco came out perfectly when the traffic light went out, an error by Kawasaki fell to fifth place leaving Edwards, Deroue, Ieraci and González. Luckily Carrasco responded quickly and on the first lap he recovered to third position while Edwards tried to leave alone.
Before finishing the first lap, Carrasco's progression was interrupted when she was involved in a race with Ieraci who took her off the track, falling to the tenth position and having to recover quickly in a race full of errors.
With a lot of activity at the head of the race with a group of 10 drivers, Deroue was placed at the head of the race in a fight with González, Ieraci and Carrasco where it would be decided in favor of who would fall for the runner-up. In a triple overtake with eight laps to go, Carrasco moved into first position for the first time.
Carrasco tried to break the group and escape but the long straight and the slipstream prevented him from breaking the group. With five laps to go a scare on the front end made Ceheguín lose confidence and Deroue soon assumed the lead.
The exchanges in the lead followed one another throughout the rest of the race with the certainty that victory would be decided on the last lap, but Carrasco tried again and in the absence of three for the checkered flag the Murcian, but without luck once again.
On the last lap, Carrasco was excessively behind, while Deroue went after a Meuffels who we unexpectedly saw take first place. Despite all his efforts, Carrasco could only be fifth while Deroue snatched the victory from Meuffels on the same finish line. Therefore, the runner-up was in favor of Deroue leaving Carrasco third in the generation.
