DEAN Harrison picked up where he left off in the Classic Superbike class with a dominant victory in today’s opener at Oliver’s Mount.

The Silicone Engineering Racing rider, who stole the show with three wins from four at the last event at Scarborough, the 2020 Gold Cup, had no trouble securing yet another Spring Cup victory to bring his total tally at the Mount to a whopping 96.

David Bell was quickest off the line as he powered into the lead of today’s race on his Graham Turnbull Yamaha, with Harrison jus a few tenths back on the ZXR750 after the first lap and Rob Hodson chasing.

But by the time the leaders began lap two, Harrison had taken the lead and stretched a two-second gap over the former Barry Sheene Trophy winner as Hodson and Mike Norbury continued their scrap for third.

At the front, however, an unstoppable Harrison continue to power ahead as he took the chequered flag with more than 10.5sec to spare over Bell as Greenall Racing’s Norbury pipped Hodson in the closing stages to bag third.
