The race then started and it was Jaume Masia (Mugen Race) who got the holeshot from the front row, heading Marcos Ramirez (Leopard Racing) but Masia’s race would end prematurely. Turn 4 saw the Spaniard highside out of the race – leaving him with a dislocated shoulder – which left Ramirez with a handy lead, 0.7 on the opening lap and over a second to polesitter Andrea Migno (Mugen Race) on the second, before a multiple rider incident occurred a little further behind on Lap 2. 2019 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Carlos Tatay (Reale Avintia Arizona 77) lost control of his KTM at Turn 11, which left reigning Moto3™ Junior World Champion Jeremy Alcoba (Kömmerling Gresini Moto3), Niccolo Antonelli (SIC58 Squadra Corse), Makar Yurchenko (BOE Skull Rider Mugen Race) and Dennis Foggia (SKY Racing Team VR46), who hit Tatay’s stricken KTM as the bike came back across the circuit, with nowhere to go. Foggia suffered a vicious crash as the red flags immediately came out, with the Italian receiving immediate treatment trackside before heading to hospital for further checks. The others were back on their feet as Race Direction confirmed all riders – including Foggia – were thankfully conscious after the crash, with the race being restarted under the Quick Restart Procedure, 15 laps were the distance.
