The second race of the penultimate round of the season offered up plenty of excitement as Manzi went into battle with his season-long rival Bulega, as well as Yari Montella. The Yamaha-mounted Italian made it clear from the start that he wasn’t willing to give up the chance of a fourth victory this season, and he managed just that after pushing on to keep the gap to the front small, and making great moves to take the lead time and time again. The R6 rider crossed the finish line just 0.084 in front and was thrilled to bring his team another success.
Glenn van Straalen (EAB Racing Team) was the next best Yamaha in sixth, getting the better of Jorge Navarro (Ten Kate Racing Yamaha) after the Spaniard slipped down the order following a poor start. Lorenzo Dalla Porta (Evan Bros. WorldSSP Yamaha Team) achieved another positive finish in ninth. Unfortunately, a recent run of great form came to end for Valentin Debise (GMT94 Yamaha) after a technical issue put him out of the race on Lap 9.
