Southern 100: Harrison Nears Lap Record Pace On Route To Radcliffe Butchers Supersport Victory

Nearing class lap record pace on route to Radcliffe Butchers Supersport race victory, Silicone Engineering Racing’s Dean Harrison as in the prior Ellan Vannin Fuels Senior race proved to strong for his respective competition.

Steadily moving clear of rising star Adam McLean, twice Duke Road Race Rankings champion Harrison by mid race distance was beginning to stamp his authority on yet another Supersport encounter at Billown.

Ultimately scooping race honours by a margin of just over 2.6 seconds, when speaking after the race to Manx Radio he was full of praise for race runner up McLean who continues to further cement his reputation as a top line exponent of 600 machinery.

McAdoo Kawasaki team mate James Cowton completed the podium finishers, as he banked his third successive rostrum finish from tonight’s race action.

PreZ Racing’s Jamie Coward got the better of Super Twins winner Ivan Lintin for fourth, whilst Wilcock Consulting Racing’s Michael Evans finished a battling sixth.

Multi Manx GP rostrum finisher Dean Osborne finished a more than creditable seventh, Ryan Kneen and Jonathan Perry also quietly impressed in chalking up eighth and ninth place finishes.
