Manx GP: Ultra Lightweight clean sweep for Tweed

In Manx Grand Prix, News, Roads

DOMINANT Darryl Tweed was once again unstoppable in taking his second win of the week during today’s MGP Supporters Club Ultra Lightweight race two.

The Ballymoney man was in a comfortable lead from the word go this afternoon, putting his M&D Racing Kawasaki in an untouchable position from start to finish.

Tweed made a repeat start of his dominant Wednesday win, leading fellow 400cc runners Steve Moody and Mike Carter by some six and 10s, respectively, at Glen Helen.

While the Northern Irishman continued to stretch his gap to 17s at Ramsey, Carter dropped down the order and left Wednesday podium man Alex Sinclair to pick up third, just 1.5s ahead of the Moto3 machine of Tom Snow.

With a 31s lead at the Grandstand after just one lap and another 10s in the bag at Glen Helen, Tweed was walking away with another win while Moody dropped out of second, leaving Snow to slot into second ahead of Daniel Ingham.

As Tweed clocked a 106.567mph second lap, he led Snow by over a minute, but Snow skipped the pit stop and gained 45s back on Tweed at Glen Helen while Manxman Andy Cowie slipped ahead of Ingham to take over third.

From there, however, Tweed pulled out another couple of seconds and cruised home with his second win of the week to sweep the Ultra Lightweight class, leaving Snow and Cowie to complete the podium.

Retirements included Ingham, Carsten Svendsen, Kevin Murphy and Nigel Moore.
