Corser Wins Qatar Second Race

2006-02-25 00:23
Troy Corser put his Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra GSX-R1000 on the top of the podium in today's second race at Qatar - the opening round of the 2006 World Superbike Championship.

The reigning World Champion - fourth in the opening race - led from the fifth lap of the 18-lapper and fended off several last-minute challenges by fellow Australian Troy Bayliss (Ducati). The lead swapped several times on the final lap, but Corser held the advantage coming out of the final corner.

Team mates Yukio Kagayama - who collided with Noriyuki Haga while leading the opening race on the final lap - and Fabien Foret both retired.
