Armoy: Michael Dunlop Scoops Bayview Hotel Supersport Honours

Michael Dunlop made up for the disappointment of machine troubles from last evening’s opening Supersport race, as he scooped Bayview Hotel Supersport honours at Armoy.

Victorious by 3.3 seconds on his own teams Yamaha, over new to the Site Sealants B&W Racing fold Derek McGee, the 15 times TT winner overcame a deficit of plus 2.5 at the end of lap 1, lap on lap gradually reeling in the Mullingar Missile.

Outside of the front running duo, McAdoo Racing’s James Cowton grabbed the final spot on the rostrum, holding off a determined challenge from rapid Armoy newcomer Davey Todd.

Adam McLean was fifth, whilst Team ILR’s Joe Thompson battled his way to sixth in front of seasoned Armoy exponents Christian Elkin and Darryl Tweed.

The top ten was concluded by WH Racing’s Dominic Herbertson and two times Junior Manx GP winner, Michael Sweeney.

Once again showcasing his mastery of wet, damp conditions, it’s worth noting victory today marked Michael Dunlop’s first Supersport success at Armoy since 2012.
