Race One: With rain falling in Portugal it has left the Agueda track very sticky and difficult – throttle control is required! Despite his heavy build, Noel Zanocz took the holeshot in the first race and never looked back. Gyan Doensen did close up but the Hungarian responded and ended up the convincing winner.

Aron Katona was running third early before a couple of mistakes but then he found some great pace passing Faure and Perez to get himself back to third but then he made a mistake dropping down to fifth. Francesco Bellei didn’t get a good start but did well to recover up to fourth.

Freddie Bartlett made plenty of moves to climb all the way to seventh after a bad start. Cole McCullough was in the top ten on the opening lap before a crash resulting in a DNF.

Race Two: The track crew worked tirelessly overnight to get the track into shape and they did a great job to at least give the riders a dry track. Although it didn’t take long for the track to cut up and be again present challenging conditions.

It was Doensen who got the holeshot and started to pull away at the front. Zanocz was behind McCullough on the first lap who managed to get a good start but was riding in pain after hurting his shoulder in race one. McCullough then dropped it but came back from ninth to get himself into fifth before another crash but he ended up ninth behind Bartlett who had another good ride.

Doensen had to deal with some pressure at around the halfway mark but then Zanocz lost his goggles which saw Doensen pull away at the front. He had a crash a couple of corners from the end but was able to remount to take the win.

Mancini rode well to finish third in the second race but it was Perez who did enough with fourth to get himself on the box.

Zanocz will hold onto the red plate but there’s only eight points in it!
