Right after the starting signal was given, racer Tô Hà Đông Nghi, starting in second position, seized the opportunity to take the lead, followed by Hoàng Tiến and Ngọc Nhân.

Dissimilar to To Ha Dong Nghi and Ngoc Nhan, who gradually distanced themselves from the pursuing group, Hoang Tien, using the pole, consistently made mistakes and fell far behind. As the race entered its final laps, Ngoc Nhan started to lose ground to Dong Nghi, and even Le Vu Truong Giang managed to overtake and claim the second position from this racer. Despite Truong Giang’s determined efforts afterward, Dong Nghi, with consistent and outstanding performance, successfully defended the leading position to cross the finish line first.

The champion remains a mystery, and the upcoming stages are highly anticipated.
– Category UB130
Having secured pole position, many expect Nguyen Anh Tuan to continue his outstanding performance and secure the number one spot in stage 3, just like in stage 2. However, with the presence of several strong competitors, surprises can always happen. Huynh Minh Sang and Bui Duy Thong, who start right behind Anh Tuan, are both skilled racers with a cunning racing style. Additionally, racers like Le Phung and Le Hung Huu Tin cannot be overlooked in this event.
The UB130 racers are starting.
Unexpectedly, Minh Sang takes the lead right after the starting signal, pushing Anh Tuan down to second place. Following these two runners are Bui Duy Thong and Le Khanh Loc. In the second lap, Anh Tuan manages to surpass Minh Sang at the ninth curve, but as they enter the straight stretch, Minh Sang quickly regains the leading position. Anh Tuan consistently demonstrates his strength in the curves, but Minh Sang’s car showcases its superiority on the straight sections.
Duy Thong and Minh Sang compete for the leading position after Anh Tuan unexpectedly withdraws due to a technical issue with his car.
Unfortunate as it may be, when entering the 6th lap, Anh Tuan’s car encountered an issue that forced him to abandon the race midway. However, right after that, Minh Sang unexpectedly faltered at turns 6, 7, 8, and 9, allowing the trailing group to catch up and surge ahead. Seizing the chaotic situation, Bui Duy Thong overtook from third position to take the lead, pushing Minh Sang down to second and dropping Le Khanh Loc from second to fifth. In the 9th lap, the racer initially in third place, Hoang Phuc, suddenly made a mistake at a turn and crashed, relinquishing the third place position to racer Huu Tin.
Minh Sang celebrates his victory as he finishes first, even leaving behind the last-placed racer by over 1 lap.
UB130 content drama continues to intensify in the final race as Minh Sang fiercely competes with Duy Thong. After the first three laps, Minh Sang successfully overtakes Duy Thong to reclaim the leading position. Despite his efforts, Duy Thong was unable to surpass his opponent and had to settle for second place, watching Minh Sang take the first place. Lê Hùng Hữu Tín comes in third, while Lê Khanh Lộc finishes fourth.
Closing out the third race, while Minh Phung in the Blade 110 category and Duc Thanh in the MSX 125 category have proven themselves as strong contenders for the championship title of the season, in the remaining three categories, the chance for the championship is still evenly split among many racers, especially in the Winner 150 category. The upcoming fourth race, set to take place in December, promises to be very exciting as the leading racers strive to defend their positions while the trailing group will have to put in more effort to improve their standings on the leaderboard.
