Stoner fights through for night victory.

Eleventh for Stoner's team-mate Marco Melandri was actually a substantial improvement on his practice form, while John Hopkins finished his Kawasaki debut in a disappointing twelfth.

A fast late-race fall for Alex de Angelis meant Shinya Nakano was the only San Carlo Honda Gresini rider to reach the flag, in 13th, while Alice Team riders Toni Elias and Sylvain Guintoli collected the final world championship points for 14th and 15th.

Hopkins' factory team-mate Anthony West was spared the embarrassment of finishing last, but only after countryman Chris Vermeulen was forced to make a pit stop due to apparent tyre problems.
