Despite a gloomy forecast of thunderstorms and heavy rain the second session of practice and racing was graced with warm and at times sunny conditions.
Race 1 of this year’s programme, the Office Equipment Centre – Singles Classic Race was won by local rider Rich Hawkins riding a Ducati 349cc. Hawkins last won this race back in 2007 so yesterday’s victory was both welcome and overdue for the Foxdale rider. Brothers Bob and Meredydd Owen took the remaining places on the podium.
