Great race featuring Luzon and Mindanao riders
Carlos was in front of the pack from start to finish and Fernando was behind him all the time chasing him and trying to snatch the lead. An error from Fernando caused Carlos to gain some distance from the Yamah-Spec V rider at one point of the race. Fernando managed to get to the tail of Carlos once again and the two battled not just for the lead but for the win. Unfortunately in the last lap, Fernando fell down while hounding Carlos who went on to win the exciting 12-lap race.

Behind the two a battle for the third place saw Romer Corbe and Vingie Coloma in a likewise thrilling race. Coloma crashed early in the race but was able to get up and pursue Corbe. His hard work paid off as he managed to overtake Corbe and bag the third place. Corbe settled for fourth place.
