NotesEdit

  • Race 1 in Superbike was stopped after 9 laps, for danger caused by oil on the already slippery track. It was later restarted, but it was stopped again after 10 laps for rain. The total laps completed were 19 and thus full points were awarded.
  • The result of race 1 is determined by the aggregate of the two heats. Riders who had an accident or retired in the laps in which the red flag was exposed were not classified.
