Walderstown: World Class McGee Acquires Open Race Crown

Illustrating why he’s more than worthy of been dubbed world class, Derek McGee produced a top draw display in tricky damp, wet conditions to retain the Walderstown Open race crown.

As at Enniskillen, looking at one with his own teams Superstock Kawasaki, he gradually moved clear of the chasing pack, ultimately clinching race honours by nigh on 3.8 seconds.

Race runner up was Cookstown BE Racing’s ever impressive Davey Todd, whilst Thomas Maxwell caught the attention of many with a fine ride to third, finishing in front of Skerries Grand Final winner Michael Sweeney.

Kevin Fitzpatrick banked fifth, Newcomers A Manx GP runner up Darryl Tweed finished a very creditable sixth, whilst Damian Horan and Cornwall’s Forest Dunn also impressed in recording respectively seventh, eighth place finishes.

Finalising the top ten finishers were Wilson Craig Racing’s Daniel Mettam and Glasson’s Paul Fallon. Remaining finishers from the six lap race were prospective Manx GP debutant David Murphy and Noel Carroll.
