The second race of QIRRCH was a very exciting and dramatic race as the title of the championship was decided there. Alexander Cudlin pushed very hard at the beginning of the race to try to get a gap with Nina and Mishal.
In the first lap of the race, Mishal Al Naimi that in that moment was leading of the championship, crashed in the turn 2 of the track and gave the championship title to Cudlin. Nina Prinz who was second at that time had an engine problem in the second lap and had to stop and retire from the race. Nina was struggling to get the third position of the championship as she only needed four points to pass Saeed Al Sulaiti in the standings. At the end of the race, Sultan Al Kuwari from Qatar with a Kawasaki and Mark Schulz with a Honda stepped in the podium with Alex Cudlin in the second race.
