Roles were reversed in a thrilling Global Series race two
Roles were reversed in a thrilling Global Series race two. Held over 10 laps, trastevere73 got the holeshot and led from the front while AndrewZh and the impressive Wimp gave chase close behind. The leading two soon broke clear, however and produced a grandstand finale, with the Ducati Team rider passing his rival before the final turn on the last lap. Not to be outdone, trastevere73 showed all his class to let the brakes off, and outmanoeuvre his rival to win his first race in this year’s Global Series and put himself back in the championship hunt.
Wimp completed a fine evening’s work by collecting third, ahead of EleGhosT555 and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Juan_nh16 in fourth and fifth respectively.
There was early drama for two of the early favourites: Cristianmm17 had to produce a thrilling fight back after crashing on the first lap. He recovered to sixth, ensuring he is still in the midst of the title fight. And pre-championship favourite adrianDP26’s early crash out of second meant he could only score five points for ninth place.
The results place AndrewZh back at the head of the standings; but it’s close. trastevere73 now sits just four points behind with Cristianmm17, the title leader after round one, six back of the leader. Juan_nh16 is 29 points back in fourth.
