With warm and bright conditions the first of two "Sure sidecar" races got under way.
Gordon and Phil set off down "Bray Hill" all was going well, when the race was red flagged due to an incident at "Bishopscourt"
All sidecar crews returned to pit lane. The race was rescheduled for the full three laps, and the start time was 16.00.
Once again Gordon and Phil set off down "Bray Hill". All was good with the bike, but again fuel mapping was a problem all through the three laps. Gordon just had to get on with the race, nothing was going to change the mapping now. Gordon and Phil were all on their own throughout the race, so it was all down to them where they were going to finish the race.
