Tommaso Mosca also caused a stir. The Italian started from first on the grid and held the lead for nine laps. After his tyres started to degrade, he was eventually beaten by the pressure from Mikel Azcona and fell back to fifth place. Philip Ellis crossed the finish line as the best pursuer of the Spaniard just 0.8 seconds behind. In doing so, he has maintained his table lead of 33 points. Ellis and Azcona remain the only drivers to have won this year.
