The four way battle lasted for the full race distance but Toseland kept his head despite dropping from an early lead back to fourth place during the arduous race.
Biaggi who fought hard from lights to flag on his Alstare Corona Extra Suzuki had to settle for second place behind the British rider who has successfully extended his championship lead.
The top three riders usually attend a post race press conference however Biaggi opted to sit this out due to sustaining a cut to his hand during the race and went to the medical centre instead. The cut was caused by a stone thrown up from Toseland's bike which damaged his screen.
“I must apologise for Max not begin here (at the press conference) it's my fault, I didn't do it on purpose but I ran wide and my bike threw some stones up which hit Max,” explained Toseland, “I've not been on the podium for a couple of rounds now and that was starting to piss me off, so I did my best on the track and on the grass and here I am.”
Toseland feels his longer runs during practice helped him to his race win, “I knew we needed 40 degrees on track for my tyres to work and it was just 40 degrees. Everyone was in the same situation with the tyres but I think my work effort paid off by doing the longer runs.”
“I want to dedicate this win to my good friend Ollie Bridewell who lost his life during an incident in the dreadful conditions at Mallory Park, and my condolences to his family,” concluded Toseland.
Team-mate to Biaggi, Kagayama took a well earned third place pushing his friend Haga off the podium. Kagayama had a little coming together with Haga during the race, he said “After race two Haga is my friend, right now – no! I make small mistake and we touch. It took Haga time to come back but I was gone.”
When the race began it was Biaggi who took the initial lead from Kagayama, but Toseland dispensed with both of them by the end of lap one, while Haga took third place from Kagayama and went after Biaggi's second place.
Haga and Biaggi swapped places three times on lap two while Toseland took the lap record with a time of 2min 1.889secs. Biaggi started to close down on Toseland and on lap five he made his move taking the lead and bringing Haga with him pushing Toseland back to third place. By lap seven Toseland was back to fourth place behind Kagayama while Haga made a charge for the lead.
