Alex Sinclair was first away in the class from the Grandstand but by Glen Helen on the opening lap Radley Hughes had established a lead of over five seconds over Snow with Sarah Boyes in third, less than a second ahead of Unissart with Alex Sinclair a further 4.5 seconds back in fifth.

Snow moved to the front of the field by Cronk Ny Mona on the opening lap and clocked 104.656mph to lead by less than a second from Hughes with Unissart now in the final podium place but already over ten seconds behind the race leader with Sinclair fourth and Lloyd Collins moving into the top five.

Snow’s lead was over 12 seconds  at the end of the second lap as the riders came into the pits for their compulsory stop and Hughes dropped almost twenty additional seconds to Snow with Snow just ‘dropping a foot’ for a 12 second stop while Sinclair needed to refuel.

A thirty second pit lane speeding penalty for Unissart dropped him temporarily out of the top five although he clawed his way back into the top three by Glen Helen on the last lap, less than two seconds ahead of Sinclair

At the front of the field Snow lead by over thirty seconds from second placed man Hughes Snow duly came home with a last lap of 103.400mph to win by over 45 seconds from Hughes with Hughes holding off Unissart’s last lap charge to finish three seconds in front of the French riderSinclair and Collins completed the top five.
