After several hours of overnight rain, it was declared a dry race as the clouds loomed in the distance. The race lasted three laps before it was stopped.
Surprisingly, the weather only played an indirect part in the red flag, with Christian Gamarino missing a chicane and catching wet grass on the exit of Variante Alta, depositing his bike on the racing line three laps in. Until then, the racing was Jules Cluzel and Kenan Sofuoglu swapping places a few times at the front with Randy Krummenacher in third until he was black flagged for smoke pouring out of the side of his Kawasaki.
Ctampionship leader Krummenacher chose to ignore the black flags and would be disallowed from the eleven lap restart. Gamarino was able to restart, ironically.
Once again, Jules Cluzel led into the first turn but Kenan Sofuoglu took over halfway round the track. PJ Jacobsen took advantage of taking Krummenacher's grid spot in third and pushing past Cluzel on the second lap as Cluzel's pace was slower than the pack behind him. Lorenzo Zanetti blasted past Ayrton Badovini for fourth place and tucked in behind his MV Agusta teammate Jules Cluzel.
A lap later, Zanetti passed Cluzel and made an attempt to squeeze under Jacobsen, but he carried a little bit too much pace and had to dodge the apex to miss the Honda in front which let Cluzel slip into the gap and hold the place to the next corner.
On the fourth lap, after setting the fastest lap, Sofuoglu started to settle into an uninterrupted rhythm and draw out a gap a tenth or two a lap from Jacobsen. At the end of the lap, Gino Rea went far too fast into Variante Bassa, the last chicane, and lost grip at full lean underneath Christian Gamarino, forcing the unlucky Italian across the gravel, creating a mess across the track. Rea was able to pick his bike up and get it to a safe place while Gamarino escaped unscathed.
Six laps in, as Sofuoglu had over a second of a lead, it was clear that Jules Cluzel had found some pace that was lacking in the first few laps and was being held up by PJ Jacobsen, but Jacobsen's Honda was quicker in the first half of the lap and it took Cluzel a few laps to gt to the position he could make a pass in a section in which he was quicker, Rivazza, the two ninety-degree left-handers that are turns fourteen and fifteen. On lap nine, facing a two-second gap to Kenan Sofuoglu with three laps to go, Cluzel set the fastest lap of the race and closed the gap by half a second in one lap. The next lap, he did the same again, but even at that increased pace, Sofuoglu was far enough ahead that it would require a mistake from the leader to get caught and a mistake was not forthcoming.
Kenan Sofuoglu won his second race of the year, taking control of the championship as Randy Krummenacher scored no points. Jules Cluzel took second ahead of PJ Jacobsen, with Alex Baldolini a few seconds behind in fourth ahead of a three-way fight for fifth that was won by Alessandro Zaccone from Lorenzo Zanetti.
