Marquez was faster than Rossi and already at the third lap he was doing a risky at the infamous Corkscrew corner and attempted his overtake on Rossi, first on the outside, in order that he gets to the inside in the right hander.

It looked like one of the Aspar drivers, especially Espargaro would win in CRT again.

But Espargero was having a driver error on the 5th lap and overturned. Teammate Randy De Puniet had early engine problems with his bike and had to retire.

So the win was between the FTR Kawasaki from Hector Barbera, Colin Edwards and De Angelis.

All three were battling for 10th overall and 1st in class, Barbera finally got the win.
