Moreton racer notches 17th win at the event
Mike Hose became the most successful rider in the history of the Blackford's Pre-TT Classic as he rode to victory in Billown this afternoon.
The Moreton man led throughout and his only challenger came in the form of Mark Herbertson, who finished second.
Richard Hawkins was some way off the front runners as he claimed third place, but the day belonged to Mike Hose who clinched a 17th win at the event.
Speaking to Manx Radio afterwards, Hose was in understandably high spirits:
In the 250cc class, Keith Shannon was the winner for the third time, ahead of Will Loder and Bob Millinship in second and third respectively.
