Saturday, May 18, 2013
Rain continued to fall on the North West 200 road course, forcing officials to end the morning’s McKendry Fabrications Supersport race after two laps and cancel all remaining races. MD Racing’s Michael Dunlop was awarded the race win in the shortened contest, followed by HM Plant Honda by Padgetts Bruce Anstey in second and Millsport Racing’s Lee Johnson in third. The races cancelled include EventServ Superbike, Anchor Complex Supertwin, CP Hire Superstock and Vauxhall NW200 Superbike. A press release from Honda TT Legends, included in full below, gives additional details of the decision. – Moto USA

The remainder of the North West 200 races have been cancelled due to heavy and persistent rain on 8.9 mile Northern Irish course.

The Supersport race went ahead this morning but was red flagged after just two laps with Michael Dunlop being declared winner. The rain became heavier throughout the day until a final lap inspection at 3pm involving Michael Rutter, John McGuinness, Stuart Easton and Event Director Mervyn Whyte declared the course unsafe to race.

The Honda TT Legends will return to the UK for just a few days before heading to the Isle of Man TT, which runs from 25 May to 7 June.
