Farrell at the double as he takes second Lightweight MGP win

Tweed wins his second race of the week with Ultra Lightweight win

Ireland’s Andrew Farrell won a dramatic Manx Grand Prix Supporters Club MGP Lightweight Race 2, following up his victory in the first Race earlier in the week, but the race was decided on the last lap when race leader James Chawke retired while leading by over fifty seconds. There was also a second win for Darryl Tweed in the concurrent MGP Ultra Lightweight Race.

Following Monday’s thrilling MGP Lightweight Race, the second iteration was eagerly anticipated on the final day of the Manx Grand Prix Races.

After a thirty-minute delay to allow the course to dry from the overnight rain, the MGP Supporters Club Lightweight and Ultra Lightweight Race got away at 10.45.

Spain’s Victor Lopes Santos – the fastest qualifier in the Lightweight Class - who was away at number 1, was an early retirement at Quarterbridge while Nigel Rea was also reported as a retirement on the opening lap at the Highlander, approximately five miles into the race.

James Chawke, looking for his second MGP win of the week following victory in Wednesday’s Junior MGP Race, was first to Glen Helen on the opening lap, a second ahead of Dave Butler with Gary Vines a further second back in third, fractionally ahead of Dave Lumsden. Wednesday’s Lightweight Race winner Andrew Farrell was over three seconds behind the early race leader in fifth place.

James Chawke was black flagged at Sulby, however, nothing was found to be wrong with the bike, so he was credited with the time lost and continued to lead by five seconds from new second placed man Gary Vines with Dave Butler third. Farrell had moved into fourth at the Bungalow on the opening lap with Lumsden completing the top five.

Farrell was first through the grandstand with his opening lap of 112.695 which put him in third place, but he was already over ten seconds behind James Chawke after his opening lap of 113.664. Gary Vines was second to Chawke, 8.4 seconds behind the race leader.

Dave Butler (112.374) came in to the pits in fourth place at the end of the opening lap for a quick ‘splash and dash’ fuel stop which put him over a minute behind the race leader with Lumsden (111.822) completing the top five.

With Butler dropping to seventh at Glen Helen on the second lap following his pit stop, Gareth Evans moved into the top five but out at the front of the field, Chawke had extended his lead to a healthy nine seconds at Glen Helen on the second lap.

At the end of the second lap Chawke’s set a new lap record of 114.993, all the more remarkable because he was slowing down to come in to the pits which put him fifteen seconds ahead of Gary Vines (114.993). Vines lost time in the pits with a stop of 1:08.26 while Andrew Farrell, running in third after a lap of (113.652), also lost time on the race leader with a stop of over a minute by overshooting his pit.

After the pits, Chawke was now over forty seconds in front of new second placed man Butler who ran through on the second lap and moved back up the field. Butler’s lead was only a second and a half over Farrell with Vines lengthy pit stop dropping him to fourth, two tenths of a second behind Farrell. David Lumsden, a further thirteen seconds behind Vines, completed the top five at Glen Helen on the third lap.

Chawke was even further in command by the end of the third lap (110.785), leading second placed man Farrell by over fifty seconds. But there was a battle Royale brewing for the remaining podium places with Farrell’s lead at the end of lap three only a second from new third placed man Butler with Vine just over half a second further back in fourth.

However, there was drama on the last lap with Chawke retiring at Ballagarey which meant that there was now a thrilling battle for the Lightweight MGP Race win. Farrell was the new race leader at Glen Helen on the last lap, three seconds ahead of Vines with Butler less than half a second further back in third.

Farrell powered over the mountain to take the chequered flag with a final lap of 114.650 to win by six seconds from Gary Vines with Dave Butler a further three seconds back in the final podium place. David Lumsden was fourth but with Chawke’s retirement, and fifth placed rider Gareth Evans also a retirement at Casey’s on the last lap, newcomer Michael Rees, in an impressive performance, completed the top five.

In the concurrent 3 lap Ultra Lightweight Race, Darryl Tweed continued his form from Wednesday’s Race win to lead by almost seven seconds from Steve Moody at Glen Helen on the opening lap with Mike Carter almost four seconds further back in third and Alex Sinclair and Daniel Ingham rounding out the top five.

Tweed’s opening lap of 105.839 gave him a lead of over thirty seconds from Steve Moody with Tom Snow (103.193) holding third and Ingham and Sinclair fourth and fifth respectively.

Sinclair and Moody elected to pit at the end of the opening lap which saw Andrew Cowie and Mike Carter move ahead of them into the top five, with Sinclair now sixth, twenty seconds behind Carter.

Tweed came into the pits at the end of the second lap with a pit stop of 48 seconds, but with both Snow and Cowie electing to run through, Tweed’s lead was thirteen seconds at Glen Helen on the third lap with Ingham and Sinclair completing the top five.

Tweed’s last lap of 103.026 gave him victory by almost thirty seconds from Tom Snow with Andrew Cowie clinching the final podium place. Ingham was reported as a retirement on the last lap at Joeys which saw Alex Sinclair move into fourth with Steve Moody completing the top five.

Paul O'Rourke was taken by airmed to Noble's Hospital following an incident at the Bungalow where he was reported to have sustained hand and hip injuries while Japan’s Yoshihiro Kishimoto was unhurt following his accident at Sulby Bridge. Alan Thomas’s accident at Greeba Castle saw him transferred to Noble's with a leg fracture.

Stevenson wins dramatic Senior MGP Race


Race fans on the Isle of Man were treated to a stunning finale with the Senior Manx Grand Prix providing drama and excitement throughout the four lap race. Yorkshire’s Matt Stevenson eventually put the disappointment of crashing out of the Junior Race earlier in the week, when comfortably leading the race, to win the Senior Manx Grand Prix adding his name to the illustrious list of previous winners that includes Harold Daniel, Doug Pirie, Geoff Duke, Phil Read, Nick Jefferies and Ryan Farquhar.  

However, he nearly threw it away with a ten second pit lane penalty for refuelling with the engine switched on and only a last lap charge, which saw him make up a twelve second gap, gave him the chequered flag from Steven Parsons.

Riders enjoyed the best conditions of the week with dry roads and sun all around the Course for the final race of the 2018 Manx Grand Prix, the blue Riband MGP Senior.

Irish rider David Lumsden was first away and first on the road, but he was quickly passed on the clock by a number of riders including fastest qualifier Stevenson who led at Glen Helen on the opening lap by less than half a second from Stephen Parsons on the peoplebikes.com Kawasaki.

The Isle of Man’s Dean Osborne was third, less than two tenths of a second behind the second placed man with James Chawke, the Junior MGP race winner and Brendan Fargher completing the top five. There was less than two and a half seconds separating the top five as the race looked like living up to its billing. Newcomer Mike Browne was also going well in sixth after being forced to retire from the Newcomers A race when leading.

Chawke was up to third at Ramsey but there was a new race leader at Ramsey - Parsons, by almost two seconds from Matt Stevenson. Dean Osborne was fourth with Brad Vicars moving into fifth with Brendan Fargher a retirement at Sulby Crossroads. Vicars was then reported to have come off his machine at Guthries – and was uninjured - which saw Daniel Ingham move into the top five.

Stevenson was back in front at Cronk Ny Mona and had a lead of just over half a second from Parsons at the Grandstand with his opening lap of 119.881 to Parsons’s with Osborne almost four seconds back in third. Chawke (118.988) and Ingham (118.638) completed the top five.

Parsons was back in front at Glen Helen, but it was all change again, the sixth change in the race, by Ballaugh, with Stevenson gaining a lead of less than a second. James Chawke was holding third but was already almost twelve seconds behind the leading pair.

Matt Stevenson joined the Tommy Club - set up in honour of 2004 Junior MGP winner Tommy Clucas - with the first 120mph lap of this year’s MGP meeting on his opening lap, becoming the seventeenth MGP competitor to achieve that mark in the process.

Stevenson’s lap gave him a three second lead over Parsons with Dean Osborne’s 118.826 putting him in third place and James Chawke (119.233) and 119.074 completing the top five a further 0.2 and five seconds respectively.

However, Chawke, who was running in fourth place, lost time in the pits when his machine didn’t fire, and he dropped to sixth at Glen Helen, almost forty seconds behind the race leader.

With the riders on the third lap, dramatic news came through from race control that race leader Stevenson had incurred a ten second penalty in the pits for refuelling with the engine running.

Parsons was duly confirmed as the new race leader and was just over ten seconds in front at Ramsey – so would have been race leader even without Stevenson’s pit lane penalty but all eyes were on the clock as the riders headed for the Grandstand to see if Stevenson could make up the time ahead of the last lap.

Chawke moved back through the field and was again up to third by Ramsey. Also going well were Steven Procter who was into fourth, 2.5 seconds behind Chawke with newcomer Mike Browne less than a further second back in fifth. Daniel Ingham was reported to have come off at Sulby Bridge but was unhurt.

Parsons came through with a third lap of 113.828 to lead by 7.7 seconds from Stevenson (112.793) with Procter (113.516) the new third placed man a further eighteen seconds back. Chawke (112.617) was fourth, 1.3 seconds behind the final podium place, with Browne (113.294) almost two seconds further back in fifth.

Stevenson was eating into Parsons’s lead and it was down to just over five seconds by Glen Helen on the last lap and then to only 1.1 seconds at Ramsey. Stevenson dramatically moved back in front at the Bungalow by three seconds, with only 7 miles of the race left, and clinched the race win with a last lap of 120.974 to win by five seconds from Parsons.

Steven Procter clinched the final podium place with a last lap of 120.579, his first 120mph lap while Newcomer Mike Browne finished fourth with a lap of 119.788. Andrew Farrell rounded out the top five, also clocking a 120mph lap – 120.247mph.
