Oliver’s Mount Gold Cup: The rest of the action from Sunday

In News, Oliver's Mount, Roads

LAP records flew and new winners hit the podium at Oliver’s Mount as racers hit the hillside for the final day of the Gold Cup.

Mount star Dean Harrison showed he still had the edge on a Supertwin, despite a few years out, as he did the Twins double today on the Dafabet Devitt Racing Z650.

The former Lightweight TT winner beat Team ILR’s Paton-powered Jim Hind by almost three seconds in the first race while Jamie Coward retired, before making it two from two after pipping KTS Racing’s Coward by just 0.320sec in race two. Behind, Ian Lougher denied Cowton Racing’s Dom Herbertson his second podium of the day as the veteran took the final rostrum spot by a mere 0.017sec.

Thompson doubled up on Two Stroke class wins aboard his stunning TZ250…

Harrison also had no trouble dominating the Bennetts Classic Superbike ranks for Greenall Racing with a combined winning margin of more than 27sec over David Bell, with YZF750-mounted Sam Johnson third both times.

Joey Thompson was back on top of the Two Stroke battle as he dominated both 250cc class races over Chris Moore, with Nick Anderson and Mark Purslow taking a third apiece on their 400cc machines.

In a repeat of last year’s performance, Lee Crawford and Scott Hardie took two more Sidecar wins to complete their dominant weekend clean sweep and reclaim the Ian Bell Trophy.

Crawford and Hardie put on another outfit masterclass…

The Team ARC boys beat Conrad Harrison and Andy Winkle twice today while Steve and Matty Ramsden split thirds with Bruce and Ashley Moore.

Picking up where he left off yesterday, 600 B front-runner Tom Robinson made it three wins from four races as he dominated both races today.

The Kawasaki man crossed the line nearly eight seconds clear of Rad Hughes and 14sec ahead of Keith Pringle in race one while Dan Booth beat Pringle to the runner-up spot on race two.
