Cowton edges out Coward in thrilling opener

James Cowton edged a thrilling Cu Plas Callow 600cc race at Billown – the opening event of the Radcliffe Butchers Post-TT.

He finished 0.7 seconds ahead of Jamie Coward in an exciting opener, recording an average lap record time in the race of 108.684mph.

Indeed, the lap record changed hands three times between Cowton and Coward, who got stuck behind some backmarkers later on.

Robert Wilson completed the podium by sealing third spot.

After his triumph, Cowton was delighted.
