In the second race, the Australian was made to fight all the way by Aaron Slight as they exchanged the lead several times. Corser eventually asserted himself over the New Zealander to record a second victory.
Corser's joy was Carl Fogarty's despair. He had another problematic weekend, working hard to rectify handling problems. Starting from the second row of the grid, Fogarty, trying to keep the world crown for a third successive year, could only finish eighth. "I couldn't see properly throughout the race. My eyes are killing me now because the visor on my helmet was partly open all of the time and on the straights it blew open all of the way."
His problems continued in the second race, in which he finished seventh.
