Losail 2004: Perfect weekend for Porto

In 2004, Sebastián Porto completed a perfect weekend in the 250cc class at Losail, taking an imposing victory after dominating every single practice and qualifying session. Dani Pedrosa and Alex de Angelis gave chase to the Argentinean, but only Pedrosa could keep pace, eventually consolidating his lead at the top of the championship with second place.

De Angelis suffered heartbreak two laps from the end, retiring form a comfortable third place with a mechanical problem allowing Hiroshi Aoyama to pick up his second podium in as many races after a close battle with Franco Battaini.

A crash for Randy de Puniet all but ended his title hopes with Porto moving above him into second, 43 points behind championship leader Pedrosa.
