English rider James Hillier has been named the man of the meeting at this year's North West 200.

Hillier received the award after winning the CP Hire Superstock race on his Quattro Plant Kawasaki.

He added the win to a third place finish in Thursday's Supersport race and a runner up position in the Anchor Bar and Restaurant Complex Superbike race on Saturday.

He was bested by Kawasaki teammate, Northern Ireland's own Glenn Irwin, in the superbike race.

Events Director Mervyn Whyte MBE said that the event had been a great success despite weather delays that led to race cancellations.

"I want to thank everyone who visited the 90th anniversary fonaCAB International North West 200 in association with Nicholl Oils this week," he said.

"Despite Saturday’s less than perfect conditions we have enjoyed a fantastic week of road racing with unforgettable victories for the seven different winners in each of the seven races.

"Huge congratulations must go to all of the teams, competitors, sponsors, fans and volunteers who have made the running of the 90th event such a memorable occasion."
