A great race for our standard-bearer Casey Stoner. He came third place on a circuit where he had never been on the podium. Casey, with his trusty Nolan X-802, after an excellent start, settled into third place, never giving up to Jorge Lorenzo’s pressure. The X-lite standard-bearer crashed out with four laps remaining.
Excellent race for Marco Melandri, who came fifth after a series of beautiful passes, and confirmed his good relationship with his Hayate.
Good races also for Nolan standard-bearers in 125cc and 250cc. Mattia Pasini achieved a satisfactory sixth position in the 250cc, while Joan Olive came eleventh in the 125cc class.
Next appointment in Lemans on 17 May.
