Moto GP Champion Casey Stoner wins in Valencia

Ducati's Casey Stoner won the 18th and final round of the 2008 MotoGP World Championship, in the hot and sunny conditions at Valencia, as Valentino Rossi breaks season point’s record.

Dani Pedrosa started with pace and at the first corner and took the lead from Stoner, but this was the only occasion the Spaniard would see P1 as Stoner dived through turn two to retake the lead and remain unchallenged for the remainder of the race.

Through the early stages of this season's closing race, Pedrosa was able to stay with Stoner and the two advanced with a slight breakaway from Nicky Hayden who was in third, but as the race progressed the champion's Ducati was pulling away unchallenged.

Valentino Rossi clinched third place from tenth on the grid after a poor qualification. The Italian's 16th podium finish in 18 saw him achieve 373 points in the season, breaking the previous best of 367 points.
