Race week for the rider who made his Manx debut back in 2014, began with a highly respectable 22nd place finish in the Junior race.

Amongst the leading 750 mounted competitors throughout practice week, he went into the blue riband Senior encounter, quietly optimistic of sealing a very notable result.

The four lap race, would prove an ultra productive one for the Scotsman, who finished in 15th place on the PRF Racing GSX-R 750 Suzuki.

Finishing the second 750 mounted competitor, an additional notable feat for Allan, was a new personal best lap speed of 116.092 mph.

With two extremely creditable results chalked up, alongside lap speed in excess of 116 mph, it was overall a hugely possible meet for Allan Brodie, which was topped off with the distinction of receiving the Norrie Whyte Trophy, named in honour of the legendary bike racing journalist.
