Dean Harrison was victorious in an enthralling opening supersport race, following a battling display on the Silicone Engineering Racing ZX6R Kawasaki.

At the end of a gripping seven lap race held in wet, damp conditions, just 0.037 of a second separated Dean and Ivan Lintin, Devitt RC Express Racing ZX6R Kawasaki.

In my opinion without a shadow of a doubt, this has been the best race to date, of the 2016 Southern 100.

Colin Stephenson, VRS Racing YZF R6 Yamaha, rounded out the top three finishers, following a great performance from the rider who finished eighth in this years lightweight TT.

James Cowton, Cowton Racing by Radcliffe’s CBR 600 Honda finished fourth as PRF Racing’s Rob Hodson and Billown newcomer Brendan Fargher concluded the top six finishers.

Darryl Tweed seventh continues to impress as does eighth place finisher and fellow Southern 100 newcomer Adam McLean.

Up and coming pure road racer Jamie Williams and Brad Vicars, AJB Racing CBR 600 Honda, finalised the top ten finishers, during a quite pulsating race.

Added top draw performances included Adrian Kershaw 12th, Glenn Harrison 13th, Matt Mylchreest 14th, Peter Wilkinson 16th and Tom Robinson 17th.

Having crashed on the opening lap of the 600/1000 race, Dean Harrison showed this evening, that he’s not only a natural talent on the roads, but that he is also one of the most determined riders in the paddock, as he went through the pain barrier, feeling the after effects of yesterday’s incident.
