Big Isle of Man Southern 100 Win for BMW
One month after the popular Tourist Trophy, the road racers met again on the Isle of Man for the Southern 100, the next major meeting of the 2017 season.
Local hero Dan Kneen claimed an impressive streak of podium finishes. He was second in all four races, and missed victories by fractions of a second. He also set a new lap record of 114.185 mph in the Corlett’s Trophies Race on Tuesday on his DTR BMW S 1000 RR.
Jamie Coward (GBR / Radcliffe Racing) reached the podium twice, finishing third in the Ellan Vanin Fuels Senior Race and the Island Aggregates Senior Race.
Sam West (GBR / PRL Worthington) competed in the Southern 100 for the first time, and was the best newcomer on two occasions with three top-10 finishes at seventh, eighth and ninth positions.
The Southern 100 is part of the BMW Combined Road Race Challenge (BMW RRC), and the results are counted towards the BMW Motorrad Race Trophy.
