Southern 100 Racing is delighted to announce that Daryl Blake Construction Ltd of Port St Mary are to be the new headline Race Sponsor for the Southern 100 Sidecar Championship Race.

‘It is good to be able to put something into the sport that has brought me and my mates much enjoyment and friendship over the years and I wish the Southern 100 organisers further success with the race.
Race Secretary, George Peach; ‘It is great to be able to welcome yet another well-established Manx Company into the Southern 100 Racing fold.
