“The result speaks for itself”
Rain played havoc with the MotoGP race here at Phillip Island. The start was delayed, the race declared a ‘wet' race, reduced by one lap to 26-laps from 27, and an incident- packed contest unfolded in front of a 44,500 crowd.
(Roberts KR211V) managed 14th place and could not mask his disappointment. He said: "The result speaks for itself. I had a loose throttle for the second part of the race. That was that."
Kenny Roberts Senior – team owner – added: "Kenny came in the pit last of everyone to change bikes, after he fell down, so maybe our race was spoiled anyway. With the bike as it was, he could do nothing to recover. This was the first time people have changed bikes, and it was good for TV, with no race stoppage. Not so good for us."
