500 cc race reportEdit

Kevin Schwantz on pole, Wayne Rainey again on the 2nd row.

Àlex Crivillé to the front from Daryl Beattie, Schwantz, Mick Doohan and Rainey.

Doohan takes the lead; Rainey getting dropped. Serious accident for the Italian Corrado Catalano, he fell, was hit by his moto and for some days was comatose.

Doohan has a mechanical and drops out; Shinichi Itoh passes Crivillé for 3rd, with Schwantz in 1st and Beattie in 2nd.

Into the last lap, Beattie is in front of Schwantz; Itoh twice comes alongside Schwantz and thwarts Schwantz’ attempts to brake-pass Beattie. Itoh becomes the first rider to pass 200 mph in a speed trap.

Schwantz seems happy with second because Rainey is so far behind, and is now 14 points behind Schwantz.
