Repeating the metronomic, ultra-consistent speed that vaulted him towards Open race glory, Michael Sweeney ended the returning Country Crest Skerries 100 in the best possible fashion, claiming in style Grand Final race victory.
Opening feature race proceedings saw Sweeney, Michael Browne evenly matched before red flags arose following an incident involving Damian Horan.
Post a moderate delay to competition, Organisers announced that the new race length would be reduced to just five laps.
As with the previous race start, it was nip and tuck early on between Sweeney and Browne.
From lap two on-wards Sweeney and the Martin Jones Racing BMW entered overdrive, surging clear.
Despite Supersport race winner Browne’s best efforts, he had to give best to well supported local hero Sweeney, who’s final race winning margin stood at nigh-on four seconds.
Darryl Tweed wrapped up the rostrum finishers whilst James Chawke took a more than creditable fourth place finish.
Remaining finishers behind 2018 Junior Manx GP winner Chawke were Supersport 400 victor Stephen Tobin (5th), top Skerries newcomer Jamie Williams (6th), Liam Chawke (7th), Andy McAllister (8th) and Alan Connor (9th).
