Phillip Island Haslam and Fabrizio photo finish

This is what 0.004 seconds looks like at over 150mph

It took a look at the photo finish image to split Leon Haslam from his race long rival Michel Fabrizio, but by only 0.004 seconds the Alstare Suzuki rider was given the win.

Haslam added his first career win to his first ever pole position start, to take an early championship lead.

Fabrizio was originally given the win but after close inspection of the finish images, the victory was awarded to Haslam.

Noriyuki Haga took his Ducati to third, following the leading battle closely throughout.

Jonathan Rea, Max Biaggi, Sylvain Guintoli and Carlos Checa battled over fourth, with Jakub Smrz, Troy Corser and Lorenzo Lanzi completing the top ten.
