2005 Supersport World Championship
Round 7, Brno, CZ, Sunday 17th July
Circuit: 5.403 kms. Crowd: 31,000 (3-day). Weather: Dry, sunny/cloudy 26 C.

Fantastic fifth for Fores.

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Javier Fores recorded his best result of the season so far with a superb fifth place at Brno today. For most of the race he was involved in a multi-rider battle and had to fight hard for his position. In the end, fifth place was a just reward for all the effort the Spaniard had put in and is a great boost to his morale before the next round at Brands Hatch. Series leader Sebastien Charpentier (Honda) once again took the spoils of victory - his fifth of the season - but this time he had to fight for it. Aussie Kevin Curtain (Yamaha) was his main challenger, but Curtain crashed out on lap 14 and from then on in, Charpentier had an easier ride. Second went to Michel Fabrizio (Honda), with Gianluca Nannelli (Ducati) third and Robert Harms (Honda) fourth.

JAVI FORES - 5th My best result this season, so I am quite happy. I made a good start and then got involved in a big fight with a group of riders. That's OK, but here you need a bit of a clear track to lap really quickly and smoothly. When you are in a group, you cannot chose your own lines so easily and that means you wear out the tyres more quickly. But I'm happy for the result and hope I can build on it for the next round.

Results 1 Charpentier (FRA-Honda), 2 Fabrizio (ITA-Honda), 3 Nannelli (ITA-Ducati), 4 Harms (DEN-Honda), 5 FORES (ESP-Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra), 6 Jones (GB-Honda), 7 Chambon (FRA-Honda), 8 Corradi (ITA-Ducati), 9 Daemen (BEL-Honda), 10 Veneman (NED-Suzuki).

Points: 1 Charpentier 165,  2 Fujiwara 106,  3 Curtain 93,  4 Foret 74,
5 Fabrizio 62,  6 Parkes 60,  7 Nannelli 56,  8 Chambon 55,  9 FORES
(Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra) 47,  10 Lauslehto 40.
