Suzuki 6 Hour Cut Short after 2.5 hours

October 2014

Once the rain started to fall on the Friday before the event it didnt stop until late in the evening of the Saturday night of race day.  The usually fast draining soil at Ohakuri was just too waterlogged to keep the Suzuki 6 Hour Challenge going.  At the 2 and a half  hour mark it was decided to call the race off as the track became impassable in places and diverting the riders was not an option.
