It was a wet start to Monday evenings racing sponsored by Onchan Raceway. The Window Wizard ministox were first on the track and despite being low on numbers the racing was fast and close. Josh Watson took an early lead in race one not to be caught claiming the honours ahead of brother Harry Watson and Jordan Halligan-Bunce. The Watson brothers again provided some close racing for the spectators in race two with Josh taking the early lead until Harry came through to take the lead on lap nine looking set to snatch the victory but Josh came back on the last corner to take the flag ahead of Harry and Jordan. Race three saw Josh complete a hatrick of wins with Harry again in second and Jordan third. Race four had to be red flagged and restarted after Harrys bonnet came loose and he collided with the safety fence. Josh won the shortened six lap race from Jordan whilst Harry had to watch from the infield sustaining too much damage to carry on. The Onchan raceway trophies were awarded to Josh Watson, Jordan Halligan-Bunce and Harry Watson.
The A&J Quality bangers were next for the first of three meetings in which they will contest the Onchan Commissioners Cup, with Cameron Reekie leading the opening half of race one before race winner Lee Jordan took the lead on lap 6 with Steven Guest second, John Garrod third and Nick Collister fourth. Race two saw new comer Chris Moore take an early lead before the race was again won by Jordan ahead of Guest, Moore and Grant Crellin. Moore took the early lead in race three holding on to it until the three lap board came out when race winner Jordan came through to make it a hatrick of wins followed by Guest, Moore and Garrod. Newcomer Chris Moore left the carnage behind him in race four to claim his maiden victory crossing the line ahead of Jordan, Guest and Crellin. The Onchan Raceway trophies were awarded to Lee Jordan, Steven Guest and Chris Moore.
Swift Motors production rods were last out and with this meeting and the next two seeing them contest their Gold cup they started with the clutch start format rather than the usual rolling lap. Mark Hargreaves was quick to get going in race one with Rebecca Hands chasing him down on each lap leaving Josh Ffrench, Mike Craine and Nick Ford to battle for the lower places, Hargreaves claimed the honours ahead of Hands, Ffrench, Craine and Ford. Race two saw Hargreaves again take an early lead closely followed by Hands ahead of Ffrench, Craine, Ford and Georgina Moore. Race three, Hargreaves made it a hatrick claiming the chequered flag just ahead of Hands, Ffrench held on to third while Craine won the battle for Fourth from Ford and Moore. Hargreaves went on to make it four wins from four races closely followed over the line by Hands and Ffrench, Ford and Moore took fourth and fifth while Craine suffered mechanical issues. The Onchan Raceway trophies were awarded to Mark Hargreaves, Rebecca Hands and Josh Ffrench, with Hands also taking home the victory lane ladies award for highest place female driver of the evening. The action resumes next Monday 15thJuly at 7:30pm with the final round of the Ministox sword of state and round two of the Onchan Commissioners cup and Gold cup for the Bangers and Production Rods.
