Wins for Palmer and Cutts on Classic TT Day 2

 

A proud day for Ripley Land Racing as they picked up first and second in the Okells 350cc Classic TT.

Castletown's Chris Palmer commanded the race on his Honda from start to finish winning comfortably by more than a minute.

Fellow team member Cameron Donald picked up second, just pipping Daniel Cooper by eight seconds who came third on the Team Molnar Manx Norton.

In the Okells 250cc Classic TT Jonathan Cutts put in a storming second half of the race to cross the line more than a minute and a half quicker than anyone else in the field.

Ewan Hamilton had led for the first two laps but failed to finish after stopping at Parliament Square in Ramsey.

Cutts then sailed to victory on his Suzuki with Carbutts Team rider Peter Wakefield crossing the line in second.

Reliability of the classic bikes then let down a number of the 250cc field, meaning after a long nine minute wait Geoff Bates came through the finish line in third and as the first privateer. 

350 winner Chris Palmer says things couldn't have gone better:
