Southern 100 – Dan Hegarty Keeps Up Great Form

Dan Hegarty kept up his great 2016 roads form, at the recent Southern 100.

Race week began with an impressive fifth place finish in the 600/1000 race, following a highly accomplished display on the RTR Motorcycles Racing ZX10R Kawasaki.

This result was backed up by seventh place finish in the senior race, he was a non starter for the supersport races, having encountered engine problems during Monday night’s practice session.

The blue riband race, the solo championship, would prove a highly productive one for the TT privateers champion as he finished in seventh place, along the way lapping in excess of 109 mph.

Main highlight of the meeting though was third position in the Island Aggregates Superbike Race, ending his second Southern 100 appearance in fine style.
