Kneen on winning form on his Mar-Train Yamaha
Manxman Dan Kneen was in scintillating form at the 56th Tandragee 100 as he handed Mar-Train Yamaha the feature race victory on their debut at the event.
Starting from pole position, Kneen took the lead at the beginning of lap two and came within a fraction of a second of breaking the lap record as he pulled away from the duo of Derek Shiels and Malachi Mitchell-Thomas to record a six second win.
Earlier in the day Kneen picked up where he left off in 2014 by winning the opening superbike race by four seconds from Shiels and Ryan Farquhar.
A subsequent protest regarding a suggested jump start by Kneen and Shiels has been appealed, due to lack of any evidence, and will be reviewed by the governing body in due course.
After qualifying third for the Supersport 600 race, Kneen was involved in a titanic battle for the victory with class specialist William Dunlop.
The Douglas rider shadowed Dunlop for the majority of the race after earlier swapping the lead with Mitchell-Thomas but back markers put an end to any chance of a win in the closing stages, eventually finishing second.
