At the front enraged a wheel to wheel battle between Haga and Toseland, both as desperate as each other to win. Haga was trying to pull a slight lead on the ninth lap, when the unthinkable happened. Haga was coming over a steep crest when he lost control of the front breaking for a tight left hander. This saw him slide out of first place, with any championship hopes he had previously had ebbing away too.
Toseland now picked up the pieces in first with his team-mate Laconi in hot pursuit.
Laconi sat behind Toseland, hounding the young Brit for the next few laps, making his move with three laps to go.
Laconi blocked passed Toseland into the second chicane taking first place and first in the championship standings. This was the way it was to finish at the chequered flag despite a last corner challenge by Toseland which saw the two riders cross the line side by side, separated by only 0.041 secs.
Chris Vemeulen valiantly battled his way up to a final sixth position to take ten hard earned points and keep his chances of the title alive.
Laconi now leads the championship on 295 points with Toseland second on 291, and Vermeulen is third with 282 points.
