The Spanish sun shone for the start of Race 2 at Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto, despite earlier drizzle leaving a few damp spots dotted around the track. Manzi was quick to slot into fourth place and begin the chase for his 17th podium of the season. With 13 laps to go, while he was in the fight for second, a damaged air fence brought out the red flag. The race was restarted for seven laps and the Italian was determined to make the most of his improved grid position. He achieved his 11th second place finish of the year.
Meanwhile, Valentin Debise (GMT94 Yamaha) signed off his season with a sixth-place finish which moved him up to an impressive fifth in the final standings.
Jorge Navarro (Ten Kate Racing Yamaha) had a good first half of the race, heading towards a Top 5 finish, but in the restart he could only manage 11th. However, the rookie Spaniard gained two positions in the championship to claim seventh overall.
