DARRYL Tweed was untouchable in today’s three-lap MGP Supporter’s Club Ultra Lightweight race as he destroyed the competition to take the win by over a minute.
The M&D Racing Kawasaki rider’s nearest challenger came in the form of fellow 400cc riders Daniel Ingham and Alex Sinclair, but neither was ever close enough to be in the fight for victory.
Tweed was the clear leader as the little bikes hit Glen Helen, immediately pulling a gap of nearly five seconds on CSC Racing’s Sinclair and Ingham.
By the end of the first lap, the Ballymoney rider had stretched nearly 24s over Sinclair and he continued to power ahead with the top honours all the way to the chequered flag, cruising to the win by over 68s.
Back in the runner-up battle, Derek Jones Butchers man Ingham had levered Sinclair aside after the pit stops to take over the runner-up spot, crossing the finish line eight seconds clear of third.
Retirements included Derek Wilkie.
