The prize of two Aer Arran return flights and accommodation during the 2009 Manx Grand Prix eventually went to Simon Gardner from Brighton. He road his R6 Yamaha to 3 straight wins and 4 fastest laps. On the deciding race a problem saw Gardner having to start from the back of the grid, battling his way through the field with to a brilliant second place, just enough to give him the verdict over Green. Simon, who has been racing for three years, was absolutely thrilled with the prize and the prospect of making his first visit to the Isle of Man in September.
He thanked all the members of his hard working family team and Regency Travel for their generosity in putting the prize up.
The Manx Motor Cycle Club would like to thank BEMSEE, particularly their Chief Executive Officer, Mike Dommett for being such excellent hosts and providing us with the opportunity to talk to so many of their riders.
