Group 1 under 1300 was dominated by Rastrollo, with a battle for second place between Montoy and Carrión.

The big Group 1 race started with a mess, which took Pareja in front - and he stayed there for the rest of the race. Secades, Castro and Hernandez exchanged positions several times, in the end it was Castro who finished second.

Special production: polesitter Martin Cantero was a non-starter, and after a minute of silence in memory of Carlos Peñacoba (who died a few days before in a poad accident), Arias took command over the VW’s of Yuntas and Botas. Botas passed Yustas and put Arias under pressure, so the latter promptly spun; he pitted but gave up soon with engine troubles.
