Next up for the Manx Grand Prix lap record holder, was the super twins race. A thrilling six lap encounter, would see the naturally talented rider, secure race victory, following a quite superb all round performance on Cookstown BE Racing’s ER6 Kawasaki.

His maiden Cookstown 100 ended with second place finish in the blue riband grand final, as he finished in second place, showcasing that he’s not only an established force on the 600 and 650’s on the roads, he’s also a rising force on the big bikes.

Reflecting on his latest momentous feats, of already memorable pure road racing season, Malachi said:

“Have had a brilliant day, except for the 600!! Sorry John! I’m a bit sore, was glad to get back out on the bike again.

Winning the twins, brilliant for the team, Big race, second was mega, best of the Stockers, I’m very happy.

Thanks again to John and all the lads, damn hard workers they are, and Jamie for his tips.

The 600 will be sorted for the North West 200, I’m really looking forward to it, Thanks to the club, some good racing here to day”
