Dean Harrison on form at Cock O’The North

Following his domination at the Spring Cup in April, Dean Harrison was once again the man to beat at Oliver’s Mount. The Silicone Engineering rider took seven wins – including the feature race – at the Cock O’The North meeting last weekend.

Harrison opened his account with a win in the first Junior race, beating Adam McLean by eight and a half seconds. Jamie Coward joined the pair on the podium. He followed that up by winning the Solo Open and the Senior. Ivan Lintin and McLean were the podium finishers in the Solo Open race. Daley Mathison and Lintin were second and third in the Senior race. Harrison also won the second leg of both races. There were podiums for Mathison in both while Lintin and McLean were third and second in the Senior and Junior races respectively.

The Cock O’The North feature race saw Harrison cross the line just over three seconds clear of Harrison. McLean rounded off a successful weekend of racing with his fifth podium of the meeting. Coward was fourth ahead of Mick Goodings, Daniel Frear, Brian Greenfield, Darren Cooper and James Cowton.

Elsewhere Joey Thompson was victorious in both Ultra Lightweight/Lightweight races. In both races he was joined on the podium by Rhys Hardistry and Frear – Hardistry second in race one and Frear second in race two.

Lintin took the win in both Super Lightweight races. It was a narrow victory in race one, beating Cowton by just nine tenths of a second while McLean was 1.4 seconds off the winner. In the second leg the gap was smaller still – down to seven tenths – while Bradley Vicars joined the leading two on the podium.

Joining the riders winning more than one race were Steven Haddow and David Bell. Haddow won both Junior B races beating Ben Shuttlewood and Russell Brook in both. The winning margin was just over a second in both races. Bell won both Classic Superbike races. He beat Peter Boast and Daniel Ingham in both. Paul Marley won the Solo Open B race beating Haddow and Shuttlewood. Brian Greenfield beat Haddow and Marley in the Solo Open B race.

In the Sidecar class it was two out of three for the Steve and Matty Ramsden partnership. They won the second and third race. Lee Crawford and Harry Payne beat the Ramsdens by four tenths of a second in race one. John and Jake Lowther were third. In race two the Ramsdens beat the Lowthers while Conrad Harrison and Andrew Winkle joined them on the podium. This result was replicated in race three.

Ian Hutchinson secures Joey Dunlop TT Championship for second year running

Ian Hutchinson came away from the Isle of Man TT on top of the Joey Dunlop Championship table for the second year running.

Three wins and two runner up positions were more than enough to give him a clear 115 point lead at the top of the championship. He wrapped it up following his second Supersport race, leaving him untouchable going into the Senior.

Dean Harrison ended a strong week in second place with 80 points following podiums in the Superstock race and first Supersport race. He finished just ten points clear of Michael Dunlop who finished third with 70 points.

James Hillier ended the week fourth with 57 points ahead of John McGuinness with 53 points, Conor Cummins with 41 points and Michael Rutter on 38 points. Also finishing in the top ten were Lee Johnston (34 points), Gary Johnson (32 points) and Bruce Anstey (30 points).

Elsewhere Dan Hegarty was the Privateer champion, beating Jamie Coward by 19 points. Derek Sheils ended up third with 62 points head of Horst Saiger (60 points) and Sam West (43 points). James Cowton was sixth with 38 points while Michal Dokoupil ended the week on 36 points. Eighth was Michael Sweeney (30 points), Robert Wilson was ninth (26 points), and Dominic Herbertson rounded out the top ten with 25 points.

John Holden and Andy Winkle were the clear Sidecar Championship winners with 45 points from a maximum of 50. Ben and Tom Birchall drew in second with Alan Founds and Aki Aalto, with both partnerships ending up with 25 points. Next up were Steve and Matty Ramsden on 23 points, Matt Dix and Shaun Parker on 22 points and Peter Founds and Jevan Walmsley on 20 points.

 

Victory for Holden and Winkle in first Sidecars race

John Holden and Andrew Winkle were victorious in the opening Sidecar race at this year’s Isle of Man TT.

The pairing – who have reunited this year – took their second win on the Mountain Course, capitalising when the Birchall brothers retired on the last lap. The race had initially been red flagged but it was the Birchall pairing who led the sidecars away, following the withdrawal of seeded number 1 pairing Dave Molyneux and Dan Sayle due to technical problems.

Ben and Tom Birchall got a new lap record of 116.798mph before their bike expired on the final lap at the Sulby Crossroads. They had built up a lead of over 30 seconds but it was disappointingly not to be.

This left it clear for Holden and Winkle to race to a very comfortable lead over the second pairing of Peter Founds and Jevan Walmsley. Peter was joined on the podium by brother Alan Founds and his passenger Aki Aalto. Racing in a podium position during the race, Tim Reeves and Patrick Farrance were another retirement.

A statement was released following the commencement of the race revealing the sad news that Dwight Beare has sadly passed away following an incident during the race. His passenger Benjamin Binns is currently in hospital but described as stable with an ankle injury. Beare made his TT debut in 2014. My thoughts are with his family, friends, team and passenger at this very sad and difficult time.

Elsewhere evening practice was red flagged following a serious incident at the Sulby Straight.
