Honda Dominates Brands Hatch Racing

American Colin Edwards won both races at Brands Hatch today, with his Honda teammate Aaron Slight second both times.

Britain’s Carl Fogarty, the favorite for this race, and a very confident rider at Brands Hatch, had a terrible day. In the first race, he had to pit to change tires – ending up with a 19th place finish. The second race was far better for Fogarty (4th place), but he again failed to make the podium in front of his rabid fans at Brands Hatch – considered his home track.

Fogarty’s closest pursuer in the points race, Troy Corser, also had a bad day, finishing 5th and 13th, barely making up any points on Fogarty, who continues to enjoy a large points lead in the championship.
