Kocinski dominated a rain-affected first race at Phillip Island, Victoria. The American's Castrol Honda team-mate, Aaron Slight, then claimed a narrow victory in the second outing.
Kocinski made light of the difficult conditions in the opening race to head home Fogarty by 15 seconds as Slight failed to finish after becoming one of several riders who fell victim to oil on the circuit. "They are the worst conditions I've ever raced in," Fogarty said. Kocinski agreed: "I can't think of any worse with oil and water on the track."
