Dani Holgado set the reference time first after circling the track for five minutes and was replaced by Deniz Oncu. The Spaniard was able to break through 1:50 after seven minutes, with a score of 1:49,746.

Mario Suryo Aji had made it to the top 20, but was knocked out again.

Joshua Whatley appeared to be having a hard time so his bike had to be pushed by a crew in the pit lane.

Holgado enjoyed the speed of the bike and kept the clock ticking. He achieved a best time of 1:48.607 after 13 minutes. Ivan Ortola was behind him, followed by Oncu, Stefano Nepa and Jose Antonio Rueda.

Entering 15 minutes, Mario Aji shot to P18 between Kelso and Riccardo Rossi. When the majority of racers enter the pits, young Indonesian riders are still on the track to improve their best times. Unfortunately, he even went down one ladder.

Remaining 13 minutes, Filippo Farioli was asked to return to the garage by Red Bull KTM Tech3 to replace his motorbike.

Romano Fenati was involved in a duel with Keito Toba which actually did not really affect his second position, where the Japanese racer was in eighth place and Fenati P16.

The remaining eight minutes saw formation changes in the top five. Holgado has not faltered at the top, Kelso jumping to second, Ortola P3, Xavi Artigas P4 and Nepa fifth.
