Colas Post TT Road Races: Hodson, Browne, Hardisty Acquire Billown Victories

Following Friday’s enthralling Dunlop Senior TT, attentions today on the Isle of Man turned to Billown for the Colas Post TT Road Races.

Following qualifying sessions taking place in mixed conditions, conditions for this evening’s race action were above average for the competitors which included event, Billown course debutant Michael Browne.

20th, 18th within the Monster Energy Supersport encounters of TT 2019, ZX6R Kawasaki mounted Browne gelled exceptionally quickly with the fast flowing, technical in parts Billown course.

Such was his rapid progress that come the CuPlas Callow Supersport race, he was widely tipped to contend for class honours.

Those tipping him to be in contention for race victory, were not to be disappointed as he powered to Supersport race spoils, finishing victorious by an impressive margin of plus seven seconds.

Colas 1100cc race victor Rob Hodson finished in second place, whilst the final place on the rostrum was claimed by The Peoples Bike Team supported Rhys Hardisty.

Welsh star Hardisty, synonymous for his skills on two stroke machinery, went onto secure Manx Independent Carriers Super Twins race victory, after holding off the gritty challenge of seasoned TT campaigner Dave Moffitt. Rounding out the podium finishers behind Hardisty, Moffitt was 2014 Newcomers C Manx GP winner Gavin Brown.
