Good luck boys!!👍🏻

Away they go, leaving on time, grid position 13 due to slightly down on lap times but it's only a number and we all know that Wayne and Mark are experienced enough to get up there!!  They seem to be going nice and strong, and the the news we all dread, a few flag out at Rhencullen.

Bad news......Dwight Beare and Benjamin Binns were in front of Wayne and Mark but something happened, we're not sure yet, and they crashed into the bank. Wayne and Mark came through the incident just as it happened and had a struggle to avoid hitting them. 

Benjamin (Binzy) has leg injuries and we wish him a speedy and full recovery.

Dwight sadly didn't make it and lost his life. There is never any justification saying he died doing something he loved, but he really did have immense passion and fire in his belly for the racing and he was one to watch out for. A gentle giant and a smile to remember forever. 

R.I.P Dwight

   The clerk of the course decides to re-start the race and we prepare for a safe but fast finish. Again....good luck boys.  lap 1.....  To glen helen in 5.15.005.... Balaugh in 3.47.673, steady to Ramsey in 3.58.535 and across the mountian, back down the start/finish line with a time of 109.071.  Lap 2...   Picked up pace to Glen Helen, 5.08.672, similar to Ballaugh from first lap and the rest of the sector times very close, a lap time of 109.824. Bray Hill on first lap was 154 mph, second lap was 138mph, we have a slight issue but will still push for another faster lap.  Lap 3....  To Glen Helen in 5.06.824, up again, up at Ballaugh and to Ramsey, 3.56.218. Similar pace to Bungalow and down 1 second to Cronk behind Ramsdens. But..... A lap time of 110.492!!  our second fastest time and a great 6th place finish....  Weldone to everyone, especially Wayne and Mark. Many thanks to Reese and Stuey for garage support.  We would also like to send our condolences to the family and friends of Paul Shoesmith who sadly passed away in practice. A very experience solo rider and a wonderful husband and father to his 4 children. R.I.P
