Neve and Parker dominate four-hour Jurby endurance

In ARA, Endurance, Jurby, News

CRAIG Neve and Rory Parker stamped their authority on Jurby this weekend as they broke the four-hour endurance record on their way to victory.

The duo completed over 192 laps over the course of the day – a new race record for the Andreas Racing Association and an incentive to keep the pace high at the club’s final round of the year.

Despite a steady start to the day that saw Bullock Manxsport, Slick Performance and Team ‘Doing it for the Dog’ jostling for the lead, Ramsey native Parker and road and track ace Neve crept in hit the front.

After a brief pit stop 40 laps in, the Kawasaki ZX10-mounted duo were never overtaken. And although runner-up Team KPC set the fastest lap of the race at 01:08.707, Parker-Neve Racing impressively pushed the pace on the same set of tyres to bag the new record of 192 laps.

Ryan and Jamie Cringle of Team KPC finished in the runner-up spot with 188 laps completed with Andrew Dudgeon and Darren Slous of Slick Performance rounding out the rostrum a further three laps down.

Bullock Manxsport’s Dave Quine and Michael Evans topped the 650cc twin class in fourth overall, while Brendan Fargher and Ashley Blake of Southern Bandits came home first of the 600cc runners in fifth.

Top honours in the 400cc category went to Ache Arse Sea’s Alastair Bayley and Tim Sayers.
