To make things interesting Kenneth Ouano of Norkis-AMC was in the mix as he hounded the top two relentlessly. The three riders were in a class of their own as they built on their lead lap after lap all the way to the middle rounds. Meanwhile Ebit Demape of Norkis-AMC was busy trying to contain Lyndon Requilme of Team MAC as the later was equally determined to topple him from the 4th spot.

Meanwhile Junjun Borden and Lyndon Requilme were battling for the 3rd spot, Lyndon was tightly glued to Junjun he was like a shadow engaging Junjun at every turn. The battle for 5th was equally interesting between Andrei Ursal of DREI Bikes
and Jerome Borden of OZR-Kamigawa. Jerome was turning the heat up and was aggressively engaging Andrei in all corners of the track his bike was literally lurching forward looking for some weak spots on Andrei's defense. Jerome however
crashes hard after a failed attempt to sneak past Andrei going out of the 4th turn. Lyndon Requilme got past Junjun after the later had given up a narrow opening in which Lyndon capitalized. In the final lap Robbie masterfully defends his lead
