DD2 got underway with Danny Formal on pole with Juan Diego Villacis on outside as the 10-kart DD2 field made their way to green. Jac Preston would apply heavy pressure, however it was Villacis that made the move on Formal for the lead. Davide Greco was on the hunt to make up time and positions as he hunted down the lead group, lap by lap. Setting the second fastest lap time of the race, he showed the pace to make his mark on the lead group.

Changing up the order, Jac Preston with five to go was forced to retire from what we suspect was a mechanical failure. This would move Greco up to fourth. Villacis would put heavy pressure on Formal, however Formal was keen on adding a fifth Grand National victory to his collection. As Greco continued up the field he made a last lap effort to make his way on the podium. Making contact with Villacis, they both dropped to fifth and sixth. Formal would take the win, followed by Michael Greenfield, and Max Hewitt.
