Dunlop wins sole race as NW200 abandoned

Michael Dunlop won the only race to go ahead before Saturday's North West 200 was abandoned because of heavy rain.

Dunlop was declared winner of the Supersport race, which was stopped after two laps following minor accidents on the circuit.

New Zealander Bruce Anstey was second with Lee Johnston in third.

The event was later cancelled after persistent rain.

It is the second time in three years the event has been abandoned, with just one race possible in 2011 after a series of delays.

On Thursday night, Alastair Seeley recorded a double success in the opening Supersport and Superstock races, while former MotoGP star Jeremy McWilliams won the Supertwin race.
