Being that it’s a Japanese race, it may not come as much of a surprise that, of the 70 finishers of the Suzuka 8 Hours, an overwhelming majority of the machines entered were from the Big Four. However, there was one lone KTM RC8R, of Team Hooters KTM (above). Fielding an outdated and underpowered Austrian V-Twin in an 8-hour race is a brave feat unto itself, but one benefit of racing an old bike is having all the kinks sorted well ahead of time. The Hooters team may not have been a threat to the front runners, but at least it completed all eight hours, crossing the line in 31st place.
