Niall Mackenzie takes Kevin Magee’s seat (who was injured at the previous round), and Mick Doohan gets pole position.

Doohan gets crowded back at the first turn, with Wayne Rainey, Christian Sarron, Wayne Gardner, and Kevin Schwantz ahead of him.

The riders are getting strung out: Rainey, with a small gap to Gardner, a small gap to Schwantz, and a small gap to a group that gets smaller by Alex Barros crashing out of it. Gardner catches and passes Rainey, and takes the win.
