Corser, Kagayama on top in first race down-under.

Gary McCoy's Foggy Petronas motor lost out at the high-speed circuit with being underpowered and 100cc smaller then all its competitors engines.

The FPR team hope to have a new engine specification at Valencia once a new exhaust system has been made to cope with the extra heat generated by the higher revving and more powerful engine.

The Xerox Ducati pairing of Regis Laconi and James Toseland both complained of tyre troubles at the end of the first race.

Laconi managed to salvage a seventh place after repeatedly losing the front of his F05 machine, Toseland on the other hand struggled throughout to finish a disappointing 15th.
