WSBK »

Haga dominates race two for dream SBK return.

But up front the story was all Haga and Renegade Ducati as the popular Japanese returned to the top step of the podium after claiming what was his 12th WSBK victory, and first since 2000. In doing so, Nori also surely signaled that the facory Ducati riders won't have things all their own way this year.

However, Haga's race one DNF after technical problems means that it's Toseland who will lead the championship heading to round two at Phillip Island.

Another rider/team sure to impress in Oz will be home hero Vermeulen and Ten Kate Honda; Vermeulen recovered to a fine fifth today, behind Chili, for a solid points finish.

Another Australian, Garry McCoy, slipped two places to sixth by the flag, but at least knows he can already run top five race pace, while Walker followed his emotional race one third with a more down to earth seventh, four places ahead of team-mate Troy Corser.

Full results to follow...

1. Haga
2. Toseland
3. Martin
4. Chili
5. Vermeulen
6. McCoy
7. Walker
8. Borciani
9. Haslam
10. Sanchini
