Australian GP: Races

This week's Re-Live section of the MotoGP Channel takes you to one of the most beautiful and spectacular circuits in the MotoGP World Championship, Phillip Island. The track last year played host to one of the final races of the season, the Australian GP. Following on from yesterday's qualifying round-up, today we offer you some of the best moments from all three races.

Valentino Rossi earned his 11th victory of the season in Australia, equalling his "wins in a season" tally whilst with Honda. Nicky Hayden and Carlos Checa completed the podium, with the Spaniard starting from his second pole of 2005.

Dani Pedrosa put any mathematical doubts over his title win to rest after overtaking Sebas Porto on the finishing line. This win, combined with a crash by Casey Stoner, allowed him to retain the 250cc crown.

With his fourth victory of the year, Thomas Lüthi regained the lead of the 125cc championship, finishing ahead of Tomoyoshi Koyamaand Marco Simoncelli.
