The first Moto2™ ECh race was also interrupted by a red flag when Leon Orgis (Redding – Pinamoto RS) fell on the second lap while Edgar Pons and Héctor Garzó (CNS Motorsport) were out clear in front. The accident left liquid on the track forcing officials to temporarily suspend the race. The second race was set at 11 laps. Pons went straight back into the lead, followed by Yari Montella (Team Ciatti – Speed Up), Niki Tuuli (Team Stylobike), Héctor Garzó, Alessandro Zaccone (Promoracing) and Anupab Sarmoon (VR46 Master Camp Academy).

Pons gradually pulled further away, followed by Montella and Garzó. Behind, Zaccone went down as he fought with Tuuli. Meanwhile, Garzó passed Montella in the duel for second place. Pons crossed the line alone to win his second race in a row ahead of the CNS Motorsport rider while Montella finished third, earning his first podium of the season. Tuuli was fourth ahead of Sarmoon. Alessandro Zetti (FAU55 El Señor de las bolsas) ended up as the best classified in Superstock 600. Pons took the Repsol free fuel cheque, in addition to consolidating his leadership with a new victory.

In the second Moto2™ ECh race Pons dealt another decisive blow to his rivals by adding his second victory of the day, the third in a row, crossing the finish line once again alone ahead of Tuuli and Zaccone. The leader of the category repeated the script of the first race, pulling clear followed by Tuuli with Garzó further back. With 11 laps to go, Garzó overtook Tuuli but three laps later Montella crashed out in a braking maneuver taking Héctor Garzó down with him. Pons took the flag, Tuuli came second and Zaccone finished third. However, Zaccone was penalized for exceeding track limits and Tomaso Marcon, who finished fourth, became the third rider on the podium, followed by Andi Farid (Astra Honda Racing Team), Marcel Brenner (Kiefer Racing) and Miquel Pons (H43 Team Nobby Talasur-Blumaq).

Pons was awarded the Repsol free fuel cheque and left the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya with an even stronger hold on Moto2™ ECh. He has 111 points compared with the 78 of Tuuli, Marcon’s 59 and Zaccone’s 57 points.
