Ui walks away with 125 win.

But not for long, Ueda passed Sabbatani, who was nevertheless having a great race from a sixteenth placed start, for fourth. However Ueda was unable to break away and the four-way fourth place battle continued with Sabbatani, Borsoi, Ueda and Vincent swapping places continuously – while Ui had built up a 4.5secs lead at the front over Poggiali's Gilera, with Nieto Jr. now 2secs ahead of the battle for fourth.

Positions at the front remained largely unchanged, but with 6 laps to go Poggiali began closing the gap to Ui (although it was still over 4secs), while Borsoi, now leading the battle for fourth, also began catch Nieto Jr.

One lap late and Borsoi was climbing all over Nieto Jr.'s Telefonica MoviStar Honda, the Spaniard defended for as long as he could before Borsoi moved into the final podium position when Nieto Jr. ran wide.

Into the closing laps and the only real battle at the front was now for third with Nobby Ueda pushing Borsoi with 3 laps remaining. One lap later and Borsoi still held the position - despite Ueda's best efforts, to what was easily the best battle of the race.

The last lap saw Ui still leading by over 2secs from Poggiali with Ueda finally passing Borsoi for third early in the lap, and holding on by just over 0.1secs to the final podium position.

Suzuka winner Masao Azuma had a disappointing race and finished tenth, after starting in ninth.
