Simone Iaquinta took his fourth victory of the season in race one of the penultimate event of the championship at Misano.
Iaquinta, who started from the front row, took advantage of an early mistake by poleman Alessio Rovera and kept his lead during the whole race.
Iaquinta wasn’t the only one to pass Rovera, as the championship leader was dropping lap after lap due to a seeming mechanical problem, eventually finishing in last. Despite Michele Beretta putting pressure on Iaquinta, he had to settle for second, closely followed by Dario Orsini in third.
Giorgio Roda finished fourth right in front of National Trophy winner Sergey Trofimov. Series returnee Alessandro Perullo came home sixth despite a spin during the race, while?Lukas Moraes, Vitaly Larionov, Sabino de Casto and Rovera rounded out the field.
Should Rovera get four points more than Iaquinta over the remainder of the Misano round, he will be crowned champion this weekend, provided both aren’t severely outscored by Beretta.
