The Toksport WRT driver drove a superb race at the top and was the first to be dismissed with a clear lead. On Saturdays the rainy weather demanded everything from the drivers. Shortly before the race started rain, so the start behind the Safetycar took place. As the rain increased significantly, some riders slipped off the rainy track.
