Carlos led the race for a couple of laps and he was tailed by his teammate Inguito from Luzon and Suzuki-VMan rider April King Mascardo from Davao. Masato Fernando, another Yamaha rider who hails from Bulacan, crashed in the first turn of the first lap but was able to remount and continue the race.

Suzuki-VMan’s Josh Tan was then tailed and overtaken by Fernando.

Inguito placed second in the first three rounds and finally landed himself on top of the podium in the Cebu GP of the Super Series which is sanctioned by the Unified Sports and Racing Association for Motorcycles, Inc.
