The A-main saw Edu running away from the field, with Juan and Jonhy fighting for the second spot and David in a close fourth. Some 10 minutes into the race rain started to fall, forcing the drivers to pit for new tyres. Edu was able to keep the lead but Juan was forced to retire, allowing David to take the second place.
