Blusens Aprilia Scott Redding took the last podium place, ahead of Nicolas Terol (Jack & Jones Aprilia) and Takaaki Nakagami (Ongetta Aprilia).
Briton Bradley Smith disappointed his home crowd by crashing his Aspar Aprilia on the first lap while he was leading after a perfect start from fifth on the grid.
