In the opening stages on lap 3, the #5 VW Polo spun out, stopping in the middle of the track. The Safety Car quickly appeared for one lap. Immediately after the race was restarted, the #6 VW Polo in 2nd place took over the lead, passing the #12 HYUNDAI Elantra. The #1 and #2 Tiidas had been running in 4th and 5th places respectively, but after the restart, the #1 Tiida made contact with the #4 KIA Cerato and fell to 13th place.

Meanwhile, the #2 Tiida passed the #9 HAIMA3, squeezing into 3rd place on the first corner of the 17th lap. On lap 21, the #1 Tiida passed the #3 KIA Cerato to recover to ninth.
