Solo champion continues to dominate
Dean Harrison continues to dominate the Southern 100.
The defending solo champion picked up his third and fourth wins of the meeting this morning, as he took the chequered flags in the 600cc race and the Senior 1100cc race.
James Cowton was second and Adam McLean third in the 600cc, while Ivan Lintin was second and Cowton third in the 1100cc.
Here's Harrison crossing the line on the big bike, as described by Tim Glover: (play audio)
This morning's restarted sidecar race (run over four laps) was won by Tim Reeves and Mark Wilkes.
John Holden and Lee Cain had crashed, which led to the first running of the race being red-flagged.
The pair were okay, but didn't line up for the restart.

Some sad news to bring from the Southern 100
Yorkshire's James Cowton has succumbed to injuries sustained during the 600cc Challenge Race, organisers have confirmed.
Ivan Lintin is in a critical condition after the four-bike collision at Stadium Bends
"The Southern 100 MCRC, organisers of the Southern 100 International Road Races, regret to announce that following an incident involving four competitors at Stadium Bends during the 600cc Challenge race, Driffield rider James Cowton succumbed to his injuries," said a statement from the organisers.
"The other riders involved, Ivan Lintin is in a critical condition, whilst Jamie Coward has shoulder injuries and Mickey Evans leg and arm injuries.
"Southern 100 Racing extends its sincere condolences to family, relatives and friends of James Cowton at this very sad time.
"The organisers are carrying out a full investigation in conjunction with Isle of Man Constabulary into the circumstances of the incident on behalf of the Coroner of Inquests."
Cowton won his maiden International Road Race at this year's North West 200, winning for Northern Irish outfit McAdoo Racing in the second Supertwin race.
He had also won three races at the Southern 100 in previous years, with victory at this year's Supersport race at the Cookstown 100 another highlight.
Lintin, a Supertwin specialist, is also a regular on the international road racing scene, and has two Lightweight victories at the Isle of Man TT, as well as two North West 200 and three Ulster Grand Prix wins in the class.
Ahhh Fuck !!
Godspeed young man.
Sending good thoughts for Ivan.
What a tragic year.
28 or 29 deaths at Billown 245 at IoM-TT plus all the injuries! what the Dunlops have gone through are going through. STOP the carnage!! Enough!!! ban these types of road races!! Modern bikes are to fast for these places
Some numbers to chew on:
All-time total number TT and Manx GP competitors: 10,696
Competitors died on the mountain course: 257
Number of climbers who've summited Everest: 4,833
Number who've died attempting it: 288
Come back when you're done with banning climbing on Mount Everest.
Whatever you do don't look at the figures for Annapurna or K2, you'll flip out.
They have been saying that since the 60's...
Some more great pics....
