Matteo Ferrari is the first historical winner of the MotoE World Cup clinching the Title in Valencia at the end of a stunning race where Eric Granado and Bradley Smith fought until the end! First twist came even before the race as long as Hector Garzo, who finished 2nd yesterday, was disqualified from Race 1 and that meant battle Title was close to Smith and Ferrari, with the Italian who needed just a 11th place to win the Championship.
The Briton tried so to create a gap from the beginning taking the lead, hoping that Ferrari would finish 12th or less, with Matteo who had hard times on fighting against Alex De Angelis and Hector Garzo, but managed the situation really well and avoided every risk trying just to finish the race without any problems. Ferrari as able to do it and finished in 5th clinching the Title, the first one ever in MotoE, a great achievement for him and the team.
Meanwhile, Eric Granado catched Bradley Smith and engaged the battle for the win in the last lap, trying a decisive move from the first corners already, but the Briton tried to resist and gave everything to defend his position. The decisive move came into turn 11, when Smith dived the inside but the Brazilian counter attacked at the exit of the corner without leaving any chance to the Briton, who went for a crazy dive at last corner but went wide, with Granado who managed to win the race making the Double, while Hector Garzo conquered another podium.
