After the last restart of the contest, Thomas pulled away in the remaining laps to score his third win of the year. Andrew Locuson held off Lewis to finish in second. With Lewis in third, Bracall and Joe Kay completed the top five. Qualifying events in the 600cc Micro-Sprint division went to Chris Locuson, Andrew Locuson, and Sam Lamothe.
