Suzuka 8-hour: Dream Team Honda take victory

Quote:
Carlos Checa and Ryuichi Kiyonari win prestigious endurance event, despite 30-second penalty and torrential thunderstorm

A THIRTY second long stop-go penalty for speeding in the pit-lane couldn't stop Carlos Checa and Ryuichi Kiyonari taking the win comfortably at the Suzuka 8-Hour race at the weekend.
The WSB Ten Kate team-mates took the lead on lap two and virtually stayed there for the duration of the race, they eventually finished the race a full lap ahead of BSB Rizla Suzuki regular Atsushi Watanabe and Daisaku Sakai who, like the rest of the field, had to ride through a thunderstorm at one point.

Yukio Kagayama was the only other rider to make their way to the front of the race, but he crashed from top spot leaving Checa and Kiyo free to set the pace to the line.

Johnny Rea was forced to retire with mechanical problems after five and a half hours while Cal Crutchlow and Leon Haslam crossed the line in sixth and ninth.
