As anticipated by countless road racing fans, the weather didn’t play ball it’s fair to say today at the 60th Anniversary Around A Pound Tandragee 100.
Following a swift reshuffle of the prior planned race schedule, the Junior 250/350 Classics field were first away.
Early into the five-lap race, red flags arose, causing the latest obstacle to the day’s already weather, oil spillage impacted schedule.
Once racing resumed, a four-lap distance was in prospect for Junior Classics runners.
A Grandstand finish saw Barry Davidson make it 94 Irish road race wins in total, after a last lap overtake on Nigel Moore.
Andy Hornby finalised the rostrum finishes whilst Brian Mateer scored a dominant 250 Classics success, finishing over a minute ahead of top chaser Philip Shaw.
Following the delay caused by the oil spillage during the Open race, racing re-commenced with the Principle Insurance Junior Support race.
Emerging victorious was Jack Oliver, after another hugely impressive display from the next gen roads pilot.
Oliver’s final winning margin stood at 8.586 seconds over long-term leader on aggregate timing Michael Gahan.
Jonathan Watt clinched P3 as Veronika Hankocyova, Ryan Whitehall, Manxman Gareth Arnold wrapped up the top six.
Unfortunately post a compelling Rapid International Supersport race, it was announced that remaining races would not take place, due to track conditions.
