2008 MotoGP Laguna Seca – Rossi battles Stoner in race thriller that has to be seen to be believed. The first five laps were played out as if they were the last…
2002 WSB Imola – Final round show-down Edwards versus Bayliss. Edwards didn’t need to win the final race of the season, but he did so in style.
2009 MotoGP Catalunya – Perhaps the finest last-lap of all time? Lorenzo and Rossi in a climactic finale with Rossi overtaking on the very last bend to take the win.
2000 WSB Donington Park – Wild-card riders Neil Hodgson and Chris Walker battle with Pier-Francesco Chili in a memorable encounter.
2005 MotoGP Jerez – Scene of the famous last corner clash between Rossi and Sete Gibernau which became headline news around the world.
2006 BSB Croft – Karl Harris and Leon Haslam. Harris was winning by a country mile in the wet, but slowly but surely Haslam caught him up, despite the conditions and took the win.
2000 BSB Oulton Park – Neil Hodgson starts from pitlane and carves through the pack to win – suffering a coming together with Chris Walker along the way.
2006 MotoGP Estoril – Rossi and Toni Elias. It was a win for Elias by just two-thousandths of a second and the five points Elias took from Rossi meant that the Italian would lose his title.
2007 MotoGP Catalunya – Casey Stoner and Rossi. ‘He is riding like a God’ said Rossi of Stoner after the race. But it was Rossi making up on the brakes and corners what Stoner’s Ducati had on the straights. Superb viewing.
2006 MotoGP Assen – Nicky Hayden and Colin Edwards. Both battle for the lead, Edwards wanting his debut win and Hayden to take his first victory outside of the USA. Eventually both make a mistake at the final chicane but Colin falls, handing the win to Nicky.
2007 Isle of Man TT Senior – John McGuinness wins the Senior with an astounding lap record of 130.354mph.
