Festival of motorcycling ends with red flag

Three incidents on last lap

The festival of motorcycling has come to an end - finishing road racing around the mountain course for 2015.

Malachi Mitchell-Thomas won the final event, the Senior MGP, after close rival and winner of the Junior, Billy Redmayne retired on the last lap having earlier received a 30 second penalty for ignoring a yellow flag.

The event was red-flagged on the final lap following three simultaneous incidents at Brandywell, Mayhill and the 33rd milestone, after the leaders had finished but whilst other riders were still circulating trying to complete their race.

Latest reports say David Taylor who came off at Brandywell and Martial Mourra who came off at Mayhill were both taken by airmed to Nobles for treatment, as was Donald Gilbert who was reported as having leg and hand injuries following a crash at Creg ny Baa.

Nicholas Pauet and Simon Matthews also came off at the Creg but were reported to be OK, as was Robert Nelson following an incident at the Waterworks.
