500 cc race report
Riders are concerned about the track surface and bumpiness. According to Michael Scott, Wayne Rainey, Eddie Lawson and Doohan were against racing (which would have decided the championship for Doohan), but the race went on anyway.
Rainey gets a gap to a 4-way fight for 2nd between Schwantz, Doug Chandler, Kocinski and Gardner.
Kocinski pulls a perfect late-braking pass to move from 4th to 2nd. Gardner quickly goes back to 6th.
Winning the race puts Rainey 2 points behind Doohan. The points system in this season only recognizes the top 10, so Doohan’s 12th place gets him 0 points.
The Brazilian Grand Prix,was the last race of Randy Mamola.
