Pure road racing talents experienced, seasoned, up-coming starred across the past weekend’s Jurby Airfield meeting.
The first solo motorcycle, Sidecar racing event on the Isle of Man, post the record breaking, history making TT 2023 festival, proved in particular stellar for Marcus Simpson.
Simpson due to make his Oliver’s Mount Scarborough debut next weekend, swept up five race wins, with four attained after productive stints astride the Jon Cuff Electrical backed Kawasaki Super Twin steed.
Fellow Manxman Paul Cassidy, fresh from a successful maiden TT campaign, banked five top three finishes.
Just 0.157 behind the aforementioned Simpson in Sunday’s final Twins encounter, Cassidy on route to second lapped at 1 minute 09.528 seconds.
This is officially a new Jurby (clockwise configuration) lap record for 700cc four-stroke twin-cylinder Super Twins machinery.
Southern 100 lap record holders Ryan Crowe & Callum Crowe eased to opening Sidecar race honours whilst Solo Centre Championship race victories, went to the top Mountain Course newcomer of TT 2023, AGR Motorsport’s Ryan Cringle.
