500 cc race report

Yamaha allows Wayne Rainey to use a chassis from the ROC team.

Mick Doohan on pole. Rainey gets the start from Doohan and Kevin Schwantz.

Àlex Crivillé crashes out of 4th. Shinichi Itoh touches Doug Chandler’s back tire and crashes out, taking Chandler with him.

Rainey gets a gap to Doohan, then a gap to Schwantz. Rainey credits the wind more than the new frame: “The tailwind down the straight helped the Yamaha’s speed, but coming the other way I was able to use the wind to help get the bike to turn in.”
