The first race was just two turns old when the championship was blown wide open. While attempting to take the lead, Trast73 crashed out, with Williams_Cristian falling when taking avoiding action. The pair would finish no higher than seventh and eighth respectively. Meanwhile, at the front, an incredible battle between Adriaan_26 and AndrewZh developed, with the lead changing hands several times. In the end, the Spaniard just hung on to win –by the incredibly close margin of only 0.001s!
