Jared Mees told Kenny Noyes to line up inside him at the start of the Superfinal. "I was thinking, 'You're either tricking me or you're going to open up a hole.'" Noyes said.
Marquez and Mees got away from the line better, but found Thomas Chareyre in their way
Chareyre went down, blocking Marquez, Mees and Smith
Noyes and Bailo were the beneficiaries
Marquez, Mees and Ribalta were left with ground to make up
The two champions soon forced their way forward...
... And started closing on the leaders
They disposed of Ribalta, and a very impressive Oliver Brindley
Then they started closing on Kenny Noyes
It took them a few laps ...
But they got past in the end
Turn 1. Tricky spot.
Marcel Schrotter put up a very respectable performance
Spanish champ. And nearly Superprestigio champ
