His brake problems continued until the end of the event, while the team looked on mystified. In addition, shock absorber troubles slowed their cars, an embarrassment of such magnitude that the crews were ordered never to talk about the dampers to outsiders. Chris Atkinson struggled on and settled for sixthn, which, in the circumstances, was most presentable. Suzuki, for a long time, really looked good. At midday on Friday both Toni Gardemeister and PG Andersson had delays because of hydraulic troubles, and by midday on Saturday the cars were lying ninth and 10th. Gardemeister then had to stop with suspension collapse. He restarted for the final day, but retired when an electrical cable burned out. Andersson went on to give the team one point in eighth.
