In the only
dry race all day Michael Rutter claimed the first Superbike win on his
Ducati 998 from Suzuki's Adrian Archibald and a surprise third for Steve
Plater on the ex Colin Edwards Honda SP2.
Archibald scored a popular first North West victory in the Production 1000 Race
with Ryan Farquhar also claiming a maiden win in the 600 Junior.
Ian Lougher made up for a dismal showing in the Superbikes to bounce back to snatch a last corner win from Michael Wilcox.
Farquhar made the headlines again with a second 600 win only to be disqualified for passing Ian Lougher under yellow flags, this elevated Bruce Anstie to a fine second place on the union jacked Valmoto Triumph Daytona.
