Matteo Ferrari clinched his second win of the 2023 MotoE World Championship as he brushed off the attentions of series leader Jordi Torres to win the first MotoE Dutch TT race at Assen.

The Italian made the most of his front row starting position to track Torres through the opening couple of turns before lunging past his rival as they approached Turn 4.

From here Ferrari wasn't challenged again, the threat from Torres fading over the course of the seven lap race, the Felo Gresini rider taking the flag with a comfortable margin of just below a second in hand.


His second victory of the season, it helps him take a five-point chunk out of Torres' series lead to reduce the margin to 13 points with one more race still to run this afternoon.

Despite coming under pressure from Randy Krummenacher in the latter stages of the race, Torres held on in second place, the two-time MotoE World Cup Champion notching up his fifth podium of the season.

It was a second trip to the rostrum for Krummenacher, the Swiss rider clawing back a sizeable gap to the front two riders after losing time in a scrap with Eric Granado. However, the 2019 WorldSSP Champion would ultimately run out of time to pounce on Torres ahead.

Mattia Casadei recovered to fourth at the flag, the Italian fighting back from being demoted off pole position down to tenth place on the grid as punishment for tyre pressure irregularities. The Italian made swift progress early on to be sixth by the end of the first lap before resisting Andrea Mantovani in a sprint to the line, the fourth and fifth place riders split by just +0.100s at the flag.

Granado, a race winner at Assen last year on the Energica, was left in sixth place, well ahead of Hector Garzo, the first-time MotoE race winner at Sachsenring last week in seventh after starting down in 12th.

Ex-MotoGP rider Tito Rabat scored his best MotoE result to date in eighth, with Nicholas Spinelli and Kevin Zannoni completing the top ten.
