500 cc race report

Wayne Rainey’s 3rd pole in 4 races; takes turn 1 from Mick Doohan, John Kocinski, Eddie Lawson and Kevin Schwantz.

Rainey and Doohan get a little gap to Kocinski, then it’s a large gap to 4th. Doohan starts to open a gap from Rainey, who starts to get pressure from his teammate Kocinski.

Kocinski passes Rainey without much finesse. Doohan wins with a large gap and Kocinski’s 2nd place takes 2 points from Rainey’s standing, so he’s now 4 points behind Doohan.

Rainey says that his tire blistered and had to nurse it on the right-handers. Schwantz' Suzuki holed a piston while he was battling for 4th place.
