Stoner wins Valencia finale.

Missing from the 2009 MotoGP grid will be Anthony West, Nakano and Sylvain Guintoli: West, who will move to WSS next year, finished where he'd started in 17th for Kawasaki, while by contrast Nakano - tipped to join Aprilia's new WSBK effort - charged from 15th on the grid to seventh for Honda Gresini. BSB-bound Guintoli brought his Alice Ducati home in 13th, one place higher than he'd qualified.

All 18 riders finished the race, with Toni Elias a very distant last on his final Alice ride. Elias will replace Nakano at Gresini next season.

Preparations for the 2009 season will start with a two-day test at Valencia on Monday and Tuesday.
