Skerries: Race Action Wrap Up

Prior to completing a hat-trick of victories, with success in the showpiece Country Crest Grand Final, reigning Duke Road Race Rankings Champion Michael Sweeney, stormed to Super Twins class honours.

The five lap re-started Twins encounter saw the twice Junior Manx Grand Prix winner, take the victory spoils by 13.14 seconds over top chaser Eoin O’Siochru.

O’Siochru who is set to next month make his Manx GP debut, alongside Sweeney was one of the undoubted stars of this year’s Skerries 100.

Victorious in the Junior Support race, keeping at bay the determined attentions of Michael Gahan, he also went onto finish runner-up within the 125/Moto 3 race.

Top 125/Moto 3 exponent yesterday, finishing almost 32 seconds in front of O’Siochru was BE Racing/RK Racing’s Michael Browne, who along the way set a blistering new Moto 3 lap record, lapping at 1 minute 50.088 seconds.

German visitor Chris Meyer, Stephen Tobin shared the 250, Lightweight Supersport honours whilst the keenly contested Senior Support race yielded a first-time roads winner in the form of Manxman Marcus Simpson.

Simpson, a podium finisher at last month’s Pre-TT Classic, headed the Isle of Wight’s Ryan Whitehall, Faraldo Racing’s Keelim Ryan in the seven-lap race.

Others to taste victory success yesterday were RJ Woolsey (Supersport 300), Brian Mateer (Junior 250 Classics), Richard Ford (Senior 1000 Classics) and Junior 350 Classics & Senior 500 Classics victor John Leigh Pemberton.
