500 cc race reportEdit
Rainey gets the start.
Rainey has the lead from Alex Barros, Schwantz and Mick Doohan. Approaching the chicane, Doohan leaves the braking too late and slams into the back of Barros on his right, then falls to his left and takes out Schwantz. Schwantz looks injured. Rainey’s championship hopes suddenly look bright, with Carl Fogarty and Luca Cadalora behind him.
Fogarty is adjusting his front brakes on-the-fly; Cadalora comes past.
Àlex Crivillé, who’d been in a battle with Shinichi Itoh, crashes out.
Rainey and Cadalora at the front; Cadalora looks like he’s staying behind Rainey purposely, but then passes. Watching on the race monitors, team manager Kenny Roberts shakes his head at Cadalora’s disregard for Rainey’s championship struggle. It will be Cadalora’s first 500 win.
Fogarty looks to have a strong 3rd, but seems to be running out of gas and is pipped at the line by Niall Mackenzie.
Rainey is now 3 points behind Schwantz with 4 rounds to go.
Cadalora: “When I saw that Kevin was out and he didn’t get point (sic), I was thinking it was not big trouble, because 20 points more for Wayne. That’s good.”  Had Cadalora stayed in 2nd, Rainey would be 2 points ahead, not 3 points behind.
Roberts: “I’m very happy for Luca, because to win a 500 grand prix for Luca is fantastic. But, I have to run the Marlboro Yamaha team, and for the team, it would have been better that Wayne won. But, we have a lot of work to do before we win the world championship and I don’t think this is going to make a big difference and Wayne is very happy for Luca as well.”
