Russell edges dramatic Supertwin MGP

 

Michael Russell has won a dramatic Supertwin Manx Grand Prix.

 

He edged Wednesday's Junior winner Michael Sweeney in the re-run, two-lap race.

 

Sweeney had started some three and a half minutes ahead of Russell, so there was quite a wait after Sweeney had crossed the line.

 

Here's  the moment Russell came through the finish, as described by Tim Glover: (play audio)

Rob Hodson came third.

Meanwhile, the Lightweight, which was run concurrently with the Supertwins, was won by Alistair Howarth.

Colin Martin was second and Alex Sinclair third.
