Local man Glenn Irwin was the big winner at the 2019 North West 200 as he won the only Superbike race run on a rain-hit Saturday.
After stupendous weather during the week had riders and fans delighted, the mist and the rain rolled in on Saturday morning and caused havoc with the day's schedule.
Twice the event saw red flags produced, both times during the opening Supersport race, the first of which for an incident involving rider Daley Mathison at Black Hill, then for oil on the track when Alastair Seeley's engine gave out.
That came after the day's racing had been delayed due to the adverse weather conditions, throwing the day into further disarray.
When the rain rolled back in late in the day, it caused the cancellation of the marquee race, the North West 200 Superbike, due to the failing light.
That, by default, made Irwin the big winner of the day having won the first Superbike race, the second of the day, as he dueled superbly with Kawasaki team-mate James Hillier all the way to the finish line before pipping him at the death.
Having started the final lap second, Irwin slipped by Hillier at the Magherabuoy Chicane, only for his team-mate to respond at Metropole. However, with the last throw of the dice, Irwin got him back at Juniper to snatch victory.
Hillier did get plenty of consolation as he dominated from start to finish to win the Superstock race, able to cruise in for the victory by the end from Richard Cooper in second.
The Kawasaki man at one point held a 19 second lead over the chasing pack, such was his dominance, with the real race being who would take the runners-up spot, with newcomer Cooper holding off Davey Todd.
There was an amazing result in the Supertwins race as 55-year-old Jeremy McWilliams finished top of the rostrum, managing to keep just ahead of Christian Elkin right to the finish.
In the first race of the day, Davey Todd came out on top of a severely diluted field in the opening Supersport race as he held off the triple threat of Derek McGee, Conor Cummins and Paul Jordan.
In a thrilling conclusion, the lead changed hands four times in the final lap between Todd, McGee and Cummins, with the former coming out on top at the chequered flag.
The riders had taken to the track for a sighting lap ahead of the North West 200 Superbike race to finish the day, but, when the majority of the field withdrew upon returning to the paddock, the smart decision was taken to call it off.
