Jordi Torres took to the track for his second race with MV Agusta focused on collecting the first points for the championship standings.
When the lights go out, Jordi starts from the fourth row and moves to the attack of Loris Baz, passing him and entering into the Top 10. On lap 11, the Spaniard made the mandatory tire change pit stop. When he was quickly able to get back on track he was 8th but far from the first. After a strong battle with Baz, the 30-year-old rider manages to hold the position, getting the first 8 points in the championship standings.
