Debut victory for dominating Porto.

But back up front, Porto was looking as impressive as he had throughout as the laps wound down, and having not put a foot wrong so far the Petronas rider wasn't to be denied in the closing stages as his #9 machines 14 second lead stood firm to the finish.

Porto crossed the line with both hands punching the air with delight in a year when he had threatened to upset the order, but on more than one occasion had been let down by his machinery.

Joining the emotional Porto, who stopped to deprive a jubilant fan of his Argentine Football shirt on his slowing down lap, was Robby Rolfo who maintained his edge over Battaini, while Marco Melandri duly collected the points for fourth in what was mission accomplished for the Aprilia rider.

Full results to follow…

1. Porto
2. Rolfo
3. Battaini
4. Melandri
5. Elias
6. Stoner
7. Alzamora
8. Matsudo
