Byrne led for the first-half of the race but around the half-way stage Hickman moved up into first with Brookes bumping the championship leader into third.

Jake Dixon took second with Leon Haslam in third.
Bradley Ray was the first to crash out of the race but was fortunate not to sustain any injury.
Earlier Brooks secured his first victory of the season in Race 1 leading off Hickman again and Jake Dixon.
