The race was exciting , because the track conditions were uncertain. From the start, Kleber Augusto risked everything to keep his position , leaving the pilot Cleber Guimarães (#145) for Igor Varone (#33) who had great start, taking the 3rd position from Cleber (#145), but the pilot suffered a fall even in 1st round leaving way for the team Master Supermoto Sports to take the first and second position. Fernando Orsi (#138) was in third place and was the only rider to choose slicks over rain tires, with that he tried to make the difference to Igor Varone (#33), But Igor(#33) remained ahead, 4th place was Cleber Guimarães (#145).

" I do not know what's worse ... riding in the rain with slicks or rain tires in the dry. It was a very difficult test,  my biggest struggle has been with the bike, "said Kleber Augusto, winner of the race.
