Marco Melandri held off Jonathan Rea to claim the win in Race 2 at the
Miller Motorsport Park after reigning World Champion Carlos Checa
crashed out while leading.
The day's second race got under way under perfect conditions with
Melandri leading into the first corner before being overtaken by Tom
Sykes. Checa slotted into third place before taking the lead on lap 3.
However, one lap later the race was red-flagged when Honda's Hiroshi Aoyama crashed heavily, dumping oil onto the track.
