In a media release the NHRA state that after carefully considering the prima facie evidence, the provisions of Rule 91.2 have been enforced and an interim suspension has been imposed on Mr Andrew Fortune, a licenced Stable Employee and Colour Holder, from attending race meetings until such time as the outcome of the inquiry has been determined.
