Carlos Checa on the Althea Ducati swept to victory in both the races of the World Superbikes at the Miller Motorsport Park.  This victory was widely anticipated since Checa and the Ducati are known to show a good turn of speed here.  Jakub Smrz and Sylvain Guintoli both on Ducatis of Team Effenbert Liberty finished second and third in the first race.  In the second race the second and third places went to Leon Camier and Max Biaggi on the Alitalia Aprilias which are the works machines.
