The GP catagory saw Australian & new Honda rider Casey Stoner fly pass the checker flag to win & become the first GP classification leader for the new season. Honda has managed to "fine - tune" their machines in "lighting bolt" mode & it was a grand effort by second placed & current World Champion JORGE LORENZO to take his Yamaha bike into the silver position with some brilliant & outstanding driving as he was really pleased post-race. Spaniard & Honda rider DANI PEDROSA got in third after he felt some pain in his shouder as Lorenzo flew by him 3/4 of the way.

|Spanish 125cc rider Terol|
The happy news for Spanish Sports was in the 125cc catagory with NICO TEROL winning ahead of Cortese & another Spaniard Gadea. Terol starts fantastically the season & looks great along with Gadea. The 125 cc has traditionally of late been a Spanish strong hold.
Next race: Spanish GP ( Jerez ) - 3rd of April
