Oil on course prevents sidecar race

Harrison close to S100 lap record

The first sidecar race of the Steam Packet Southern 100 International Road Races didn’t take place last night.

That was because of oil on the circuit from Ballabeg to Cross Four-ways.


The three races before did take place but after a delay at the start due to an ambulance on the circuit to attend to a medical emergency.


Reigning solo champion Dean Harrison won two races taking victory in both the Ellan Vannin Fuels Senior and the Radcliffe Butchers 600cc.


He was a whisker away from breaking the lap record in the latter race as was Ivan Lintin in winning the Mike Kerruish Plumbing 250/650cc contest.


There are 11 races today (Thurs) with roads around the Billown Circuit closed between 9.45am and 12.15pm and 1pm to no later than 5.30pm.


This afternoon sees both the Solo and Sidecar Championship races.
