Milenco by Padgetts Davey Todd became the first double race winner of this year’s Armoy Road Races, after an exhilarating performance in the BlueSky Resource Recovery Supersport race.
0.9 ahead post lap one’s finalisation, Todd by mid race distance had steadily pulled away from the quality filled chasing pack.
Although a fair chunk off the late great William Dunlop’s existing 600cc lap record, Todd’s consistency allied to his formidable racing acumen and ultra-competitive Honda machinery enabled him to vault in style to race success.
His final race winning margin stood at 5.119 seconds with Tobermore’s Adam McLean leading the challenge to the 2022 Southern 100 Solo Champion.
McAdoo Kawasaki’s Derek Sheils reeled in 125/Moto 3 winner Michael Browne for third whilst an intriguing battle for fifth was won by former Junior Classic TT winner Dominic Herbertson.
PreZ Racing’s Paul Jordan took sixth, Classic Superbike victor Jamie Coward placed seventh as Graham Kennedy, opening Supersport race runner-up Darryl Tweed, WH Racing’s Julian Trummer wrapped up the top ten finishers.
