Delivering his best performance of the series to date, Haaker matched his runner-up result from last weekend‰Ûªs GP of Argentina but also added in a race three victory. Looking much more controlled and proving more consistent than in previous events, Haaker was a serious threat for the overall victory all night. Hampered only by a small, but costly, crash in race two, the Husqvarna rider ended his night just one-point behind Webb in second.
"I enjoyed it out there tonight," said Haaker. "I felt much more comfortable on the track than in races past. I‰Ûªm happy to get a win in the final race and with it the runner-up result."
Entering Brazil as the new championship leader, Walker hit hard in the Akrapovic SuperPole by setting the fastest time. But unable to find a rhythm in the opening race he had to settle for third. Riding smart and consistent, he capitalised on the mistakes of both Webb and Haaker in race two to claim the win. Holding second for the majority of race three, he almost had the overall victory until Webb sneaked past on the last corner. Ending his night third overall, but just two points behind Webb, Walker still maintains a nine-point advantage in the championship chase.
‰ÛÏTonight probably wasn‰Ûªt my best night but even so I was still fighting for the overall victory right up until the final corner so I think that‰Ûªs positive,‰Û
