Hodgson controls race two.

Andy Meklau took a well deserved ninth on the only Gerin Ducati in the race although the Austrian only inherited the position after Ben Bostrom had to pit to change his rear tyre and Juan Borja crashed at Druids. The high retirement rate also accounted for, amongst others, the second Axo Aprilia of Alessandro Antonello and the Bertocchi Kawasaki of Giovanni Bussei.

The mechanical carnage left Alessandro Gramigni in a well deserved tenth place while Katsuaki Fujiwara and Vittoriano Guareschi completed the top dozen, neither rider doing their chances of retaining their factory rides any good this weekend.

Completing the points scorers were Markus Barth, Marco Borciani and Lance Isaacs as they were the only others left not to have been delayed by one problem or another.

The Brands Hatch weekend certainly lived up to most expectations with a good deal of British success to cap it all off. As far as the championship is concerned though, it is still open to either Edwards, Corser or Haga despite Troy's failure to score in race two. The Australian is now 24 points behind the Texan with just six races remaining. However with talk of the Imola round being cancelled, everything could come to a head at Assen in just under a months time.
