Enniskillen Road Races: McGee Powers To Erne Insurance Supersport Honours

Backing up his stellar form from qualifying, Mullingar’s Derek McGee powered to Erne Insurance Supersport honours at Enniskillen, following a highly accomplished first class display on the B&W Racing Kawasaki.

Holding throughout a 1.4 second plus lead over McAdoo Kawasaki’s Adam McLean, by the fifth and penultimate lap of the race, his race lead extended to in excess of 14 seconds, as Tobermore’s McLean on lap 4 in pursuit of McGee went up the slip road at Gransagh.

As McGee crossed the checkered flag on lap six, his advantage out front stood at almost 20.4 seconds.
