Suzuka 8 Hours is an arcade game released by Namco in 1992 . It is similar in play to Final Lap, but with motorcycles instead of race cars.

A sequel to this game, Suzuka 8 Hours 2, was released by Namco in 1993.

SNES version[edit | edit source]

Suzuka 8 Hours was ported to the Super NES. The Super NES version allows the player to virtually participate in the grueling eight-hour long Suzuka race in Japan. While the game doesn't allow the player to play for 8 real hours (even in the Japanese Super Famicom version), he can play for 8 "virtual hours", which is translated to over 1½ hours of "real time." The player controls a motorcycle on a closed race track intended for motorized two-wheel vehicles. The object is to complete as many laps as you can before time runs out. If time runs out, the clock starts going up again (as penalty time) and the next trip to the finish line ends the race.
