Rain changed MotoE race plans as long as second historical MotoE race ever was even the first one under rain condition; riders never tried electric bikes on wet compounds, forcing Race Direction to do something as long as battery charge could not be enough. That is why race distance was shortened to 5 laps without any warm up lap with an immediate start.

We had so a sprint race in which again riders had to gave everything since the start, with Xavier Simeon who had a good start taking an early lead, but Mike Di Meglio snatched him off in the third corner. It was a crazy race, with championship leader Niki Tuuli who went off the track after 4 corners ruining his podium chances, while on top Granado, Di Meglio and Simeon were fighting for the lead, with Alex De Angelis who did a mistake at turn 4 in the second lap while he was 4th just behind top 3.

Eric Granado seemed to have the pace to win starting from 9th but forced too much touching a white wet line losing grip crashing during third lap while leading and taking advantage from his rivals, letting Mike Di Meglio the chance to win the race and escape from everyone. Anyway, Hector Garzo did not give up trying to catch Marc VDS rider and at the last lap and he actually did it.

Unfortunately we did not have any crazy last lap battle for the win as long as Garzo ruined his chances by making a mistake at turn 4 going wide ending on the gravel and crashing, with Mike Di Meglio who had so free road for his first ever MotoE win, followed by Xavier Simeon and Bradley Smith, who did a great comeback from 8th after a poor start.
