Faugheen 50: Tranquil Sweeney Captures Grand Final

Martin Jones Racing backed Michael Sweeney, ended another hugely productive national roads outing at Faugheen, with a commanding victory in the showpiece six-lap Grand Final.

On pole for the blue-riband race, Sweeney already a feature race winner this year at Cookstown and Skerries, showed typically consistent, strong form throughout on route to clinching race honours.

His final race winning margin stood at almost six seconds, finishing 5.874 clear of top challenger, Supersport & 125/Moto 3 race winner Michael Browne.

Completing the rostrum finishers behind Browne and Sweeney was the extremely impressive Graham Kennedy.

Lightweight Supersport race runner-up Stephen Tobin bagged fourth whilst emerging fifth was Open race victor, FHO Racing/Roadhouse Macau’s Brian McCormack.

Remaining finishers from the six-lap encounter held in truly tropical, humid conditions were Liam Chawke, Noel Carroll and 2018 Junior Manx GP winner James Chawke.
