Jamie Dobb became the first ever rider to score a win outside of his usual race class in Austria, with a fifth in his regular 250cc class, and a win in the 125cc race. This also makes him the first rider to take two top-five positions in a weekend.

Dobb managed fifth in a 250cc dominated by reigning 250cc champion Mickael Pichon, who made his way through the pack to win his fifth race of the year. He finished ahead of Gordon Crockard, and early leader Josh Coppins. Pit Beirer held onto a lonely fourth ahead of Dobb, with Paul Cooper in sixth. Carl Nunn took twelfth, with Jason Higgs fifteenth.

Dobb managed his won victory in the 125cc class after passing former champion Alessandro Puzar, with Phillip Dupasquier in third. This gave KTM their best result of the weekend in their home Grand Prix. British rider Stephen Sword finished in nineteenth place.

Stefan Everts triumphed in the most exciting and dramatic race of the 500cc season. He managed to pass long time race leader Yves Demaria on the last corner of the last lap with a last gasp-overtaking manoeuvre that paid off.

Everts took his 53rd career victory from Demaria, Garcia Vico, Bervoets and James Noble. Mark Jones finished in nineteenth, with Stuart Flockhart back in 21st.
