Moor claimed Race 1 victory at the Autodrom Most with last-lap move; Farkas and Herrlich join the title leader on the podium
Rossi Moor (Fairium Next Generation Riders) bounced back from his Assen crash with a last-lap victory at the Autodrom Most after a thrilling opening race in the Northern Talent Cup, with Moor utilising the slipstream to claim victory in the Czech Republic and extend his title lead ahead of Kevin Farkas (Agria Racing Team), with the gap now at 36 points, although Farkas was able to limit the damage with second place. Valentino Herrlich (Busch Und Wagner Racing Team) joined Moor and Farkas on the rostrum in third place.
The race was shortened to nine laps following a red flag following a Turn 7 crash for Matteo Masili (Fairium Next Generation Riders Team). At the subsequent restart, Moor fought his way up from sixth place to move into the lead of the race at Turn 1 on Lap 2 and he remained in the front fight throughout. The lead changed hands on numerous occasions throughout with the slipstream in full effect down the start-finish straight at the Autodrom Most.
On Lap 4, Filip Novotny (Brno Circuit JRT) had a crash on the approach to the Turn 1-2 chicane involving Dustin Schneider (Goblin Racing), which forced him out of the race while fighting towards the front of the field, while Schneider was able to continue but brought his bike back to the pits. Schneider eventually was classified in 20th place, a lap down, after re-joining the race following his time in the pit lane.
As the closing stages of the race approach, there was a lead group of around 11 riders fighting for victory but Moor, initially making a move at Turn 1 at the start of the final lap, was able to use the slipstream of Herrlich in front to claim his fifth victory of the 2022 season. Herrlich had crossed the line in second place, but was demoted for exceeding track limits on the run down to Turn 1 on the final lap, meaning Farkas was promoted to second ahead of Herrlich in third.
Loris Veneman (TeamNL Open Line) finished in fourth place and was only 0.5s away from victory at the end of the nine-lap race, with Tibor Varga (Forty Racing) taking fifth place. Lenoxx Phommara (Team Phommara) claimed sixth place at the Autodrom Most, finishing ahead of Martin Vincze (Chrobak Motorsport Egyesület) in seventh and Rocco Sessler (MCA Racing) in eighth; the top eight riders in the race were separated by just 0.741s at the chequered flag. Jurrien van Crugten (BB64 Academy) finished ninth with Julius Coenen (Helena and Julius Racing) completing the top ten. Polesitter Maxime Schmid (Schmid Racing) had to take a ride through penalty for breaking the rules regarding testing, with the Swiss rider finishing in 17th place.
