Pre TT Classic: Herbertson Leads Davies Motorsport 1-2 In Senior 500 Race

Holding off the challenge of his Davies Motorsport team mate Alan Oversby, the ever popular Dominic Herbertson claimed a famous Senior 500 race win today at the Blackfords Pre TT Classic road races.

More known for his exploits on modern day Supersport, Superstock steeds, next gen roads star Herbertson showcased today at Billown that he’s also a first rate exponent of yesteryear machinery.

Victorious by just over 0.2 of a second over Classic racing stalwart Oversby, there’s no doubt that today’s eight lap encounter was one of the best Senior 500 races in the 30 year history of the Pre TT Classic Road Races.
