Cock O’The North at Oliver’s Mount Race Report

Dean Harrison was the dominant figure once again as he claimed a fifth feature Cock O’The North title at Oliver’s Mount, a circuit sponsored by Sorrymate.com to take his tally to 38 wins in total at the venue.

The Bradford-born rider has made the track his own by successfully defending his crown as well as repeating the feat of seven wins from seven races for a second year in a row.

Harrison saw off the challenge of Daley Mathison in both Senior races and then during the main event to claim the weekend’s biggest prize, maintaining a three second gap while demolishing Guy Martin’s lap record from 2013 with a stunning time of 1 minute 43.362 seconds.

Elsewhere, Steve and Matty Ramsden produced a hat-trick of victories in the Sidecar races and narrowly avoided securing all four by finishing just 0.434 seconds behind race 1 winners Lee Crawford and Harry Payne.

Super Twins master Ivan Lintin controlled the class with a pair of wins and proved to be the closest challenger to Harrison and Mathison during the Senior and Solo Open A races.

Meanwhile, there were triumphs for riders at very different ends of the spectrum as Ian Lougher sealed his 138th win at Oliver’s Mount, while Steven Haddow celebrated his Scarborough debut with a maiden win in the first of two Junior B races, before claiming top spot in the second race to complete a dream weekend for the Scot.

James Cowton, Paul Marley and Brian Greenfield were also victors, while Joe Thompson and David Bell doubled up in the Lightweight and Classic Superbike classes, respectively.

Sorrymate.com was delighted to sponsor the circuit for such a great event for a third successive year and look forward to continuing the partnership at the Barry Sheene Road Race Festival at the latter stages of July, as well as the Steve Henshaw International Gold Cup in September.
