Misfortune strikes the Spaniard, who will nonetheless remain on top after the UK Round

With the 16-year-old out of action, Ana Carrasco (Kawasaki Provec WorldSSP300) is left as the sole rider standing of the top four in the WorldSSP300 standings, after Scott Deroue (Kawasaki MOTOPORT) and Marc Garcia (DS Junior Team) both fell to the Last Chance Race after their own qualifying crashes, neither managing to finish this race later in the day. Carrasco starts from 15th, with the next rider in the standings, Jan-Ole Jahnig (Freudenberg KTM Junior Team), down in 31st.
