Two wins for James Cowton at Billown

James Cowton ended his Isle of Man TT fortnight with two wins at the Post-TT races. The races took place at the Billown Circuit where the Pre-TT Classic also took place, back at the end of May. Cowton and Jamie Coward were amongst the race winners at the pre-TT races.

The first race of the meeting was run over eight laps and it was Cowton who rode his Honda to victory in the Supersport class, finishing just three and a half seconds clear of Coward with Adrian Harrison in third place. Behind the top three it was Billy Redmayne in fourth place ahead of Mark Parrett, Colin Stephenson, and Glenn Harrison. Also in the top ten were Andy Dudgeon, Paul Smyth, and Matthew Rees.

Cowton doubled up with victory in the 650/250cc race, this time with Harrison as the runner up. Coward was once again on the podium, riding a 550cc Aprilia while Cowton and Harrison were on 650 Kawasakis. Tom Snow was the sole 250cc finisher and he finished tenth overall in the race. Behind the top three Ben Rea was clear in fourth, ahead of Dudgeon, Anthony Redmond, Dave Moffitt, Derran Slous, and Dean Osborne.

In the third and final race of the event, Ryan Kneen was victorious in the Superbike class. He was just about five seconds ahead of Mark Goodings in second and Mark Parrett in third. Michael Russell finished in fourth with Redmayne, Rees, Stephen Degnan and Mark Bamford rounding out the top ten.

Racing returns to Billown in early July with the Southern 100. Racing will take place over two evenings and a day. Before that the Barry Sheene Festival takes place at Scarborough next weekend with the Skerries taking place on the first weekend of July.
