After teasing us all day, rain finally made a serious arrival just before the second MotoE race was due to get underway, causing a slight delay and some confusion around the start procedure, leading to pitlane starts for Luca Salvadori and Tito Rabat. With the exception of some late crashes, riders managed well their first wet outing on the Ducatis and were attacking as soon as the lights went off, with Mattia Casadei robbing poleman Matteo Ferrari of the lead into turn one. Randy Krummenacher stayed third, while Kevin Manfredi snuck ahead of Eric Granado for fourth. Race 1 winner Andrea Mantovani recovered one position into sixth, with Jordi Torres, Miquel Pons, Kevin Zannoni and Hector Garzo completing the top 10 early on.
Ferrari quickly reclaimed the lead at Scarperia and immediately put half a second in between himself and Casadei by the end of the opening lap. Granado soon became their main challenger, as Krummenacher ran wide at the final turn and the Brazilian immediately attacked Casadei for second at the first corner. Manfredi followed suit, dropping Casadei to fourth and soon attacking Granado for second, while Pons crashed out of fifth by the end of the second lap.
Although Ferrari was unchallenged in these early stages, Manfredi and Granado were glued to his tail and ever so slightly dropping Casadei over lap three, but the Pons rider regrouped and rejoined the leaders only one lap later. Meanwhile, Granado tested the waters and made his move for the lead at San Donato with two laps remaining, immediately making an escape at the front. Manfredi also had a go at Ferrari at Arrabbiata 1 and the duo were left to decide second place between themselves, as Casadei threw it away at Biondetti on the penultimate lap. However, they ran out of time for much of a fight, as the red flag soon came out to help safely retrieve Casadei’s bike form turn 14 and the result was declared without completing the remaining lap.
That sealed the deal on Granado’s 11th MotoE victory, with Manfredi joining the podium for the first time, together with Ferrari. A late tumble for Mantovani meant that Nicholas Spinelli inherited fourth, with Jordi Torres fifth. Hector Garzo, Randy Krummenacher, Mika Perez, Alessandro Zaccone and Kevin Zannoni rounded out the top 10 positions.
Two sensible races for Torres means he continues to lead in the world championship standings, only two points ahead of Ferrari and four ahead of Garzo, with Krummenacher 18 points down and Manfredi making some progress up to fifth, 25 points behind the leader.
