Suzuki’s Daniel Mettam came from behind to clinch the New Zealand Supersport 600cc Championship at the final round at Hampton Downs on Sunday.

Team RCM Suzuki GSX-R600 rider Mettam (20) trailed series leader Cameron Hudson by 37.5 points as he arrived at the fourth and final round, but with 100 points on the table, turned his deficit into victory with a 1-1-1-2 scorecard over the two days to lift the title by just 5.5 points.

Said Mettam:
“I rode conservatively in that last race because I knew all I needed to do was finish ahead of Cam (Hudson). It’s been seven years of hard work to win a championship and it feels awesome. I was just hundredths-of-a-second behind the winner of the final race Shane Richardson and I figured it wasn’t worth risking everything to push too hard for the race win when I had the championship in my grasp.

“At the start of the weekend I thought the title might be out of my reach. I just came here and gave it all I had; and it paid off.” he added.
