It was business as usual for Hawera‰Ûªs Daryl Hurley and his team-mates at the weekend. There was nothing anybody could do to prevent the Team Suzuki leader from running off with the open class title at the fourth and final round of the New Zealand Supercross Championships, staged under floodlights inside Wanganui‰Ûªs Cook‰Ûªs Gardens arena on Saturday night. The 32-year-old Kiwi international continued the trend he‰Ûªs started at round one in Motueka two months earlier, as he again dominated the night, although he did suffer two defeats on Saturday, his first two of the series, when Suzuki team-mates Scott Columb and Luke Burkhart each stole away with a win over their senior partner. Queenstown‰Ûªs Columb won the night‰Ûªs first open class race ‰ÛÒ although Hurley finished second in that and then won the next two ‰ÛÒ and Burkhart won the all-capacities feature race that signalled the end of the night and the series. Hurley easily wrapped up the open class, with Columb finishing runner-up and Taupo Kawasaki rider Nick Saunders taking the third step on the podium. Burkhart won the Lites (250cc four-stroke) class, again with Columb in the No.2 spot, and Hamilton Kawasaki rider Jesse Wiki taking third. In the junior racing at Wanganui, an injured Hamish Dobbyn (Warkworth, Yamaha) rode conservatively to wrap up the 14-16 years‰Ûª 250cc class; Rotorua‰Ûªs John Phillips (Kawasaki) also raced intelligently to secure the 12-16 years‰Ûª 125cc class; Tauranga‰Ûªs Roydon White (Yamaha) romped to victory in the 13-16 years‰Ûª 85cc class and Feilding‰Ûªs Haki Waller (Kawasaki) again delighted the crowd with his high-flying antics as he comprehensively won the 11-12 years‰Ûª 85cc division.
