Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy Finale

Fitchett and McWilliams win overall on aggregate after Saturday’s brilliant showing

Duncan Fitchett and Jeremy McWilliams may have finished only fourth in the second part of the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy race but they were always going to win overall on aggregate after yesterday’s brilliant showing. Fitchett was first to hook his motorcycle into gear following the Le Mans start and he tore off on a wet track aboard his Norton to lead the early running. Within four laps he had a lead of four seconds but the action occurred after the rider changes. Four-time Isle of Man TT winner Cameron Donald was super-quick after taking over Andrew Taylor’s Matchless and moved from seventh place on heading trackside to first with five minutes of the 25-minute race left to run. He slackened his pace towards the end, which allowed Alan Oversby, who was sharing his MV Agusta with Phil Sharpe, to close in but Donald wasn’t to be denied victory on the road.
