In the second heat Eugenio Barbaglia put in another good performance finishing 12th, Federico Tuani dnf the race.
Marco Maddii: “The day started very well, in qualifying both Mattia and Max showed the right speed, in the first heat Mattia made a small mistake that took away the chance to fight for the victory, in race 2 he was spectacular. Max showed that when he believes in it he can be in the top ten. Our goal is to be constant and if we continue like this we can do very well. In the Open Barbaglia he did two good motos, it's a pity for Federico who did a good time in qualifying and then made too many mistakes in the heats, I am convinced that Federico and Eugenio can be among the top ten.
