  10. It's over

    This will be declared a result as three laps had been completed, so victory goes to 31-year-old Lintin from Bardney in Lincolnshire.

    Martin Jessopp is runner-up with 52-year-old Jeremy McWilliams in third. Then come James Cowton, Michael Sweeney and Darren James.

  11. Post update

  12. Lintin leads

    Lintin sets a lap record and looks on course for his second win at the North West, having been declared official winner of Thursday's curtailed Supertwin race.

    Second-placed Jessopp is pulling away from Malachi Mitchell Thomas who would love to land a podium berth on his North West debut. That would be quite achievement for the 20-year-old from Lancashire.

    But there is another red flag and the Supertwin action comes to a halt.

  13. Early order

    An English 1-2-3 on the first lap as Ivan Lintin leads from Martin Jessopp and Malachi Mitchell Thomas.

    Next are 52-year-old Jeremy McWilliams and James Cowton.

  14. Go! Go! Go!

    They're away for the four-lap Supertwin race. This is the slowest class, but these guys will still be getting up to 165mph.

  15. Coming up

    Next up is the Supertwin race, the class in which Ryan Farquhar is undoubtedly the leading light.

    Farquhar is in hospital in Belfast after crashing during Thursday night's racing, and was described as being seriously ill. His KMR team said he had a successful operation and doctors were happy with the progress he was making.

  16. Super result

  17. Podium places

    Joining Dunlop on the Superbike podium are runner-up Ian Hutchinson and third-placed Michael Rutter. An amazing 27th podium place for 44-year-old Rutter. Following them are Peter Hickman, Lee Johnston, John McGuinness, Conor Cummins and Alastair Seeley.

  18. Dunlop declared winner

    The positions are declared as the result with four laps having been completed, so Dunlop makes it five wins in his North West 200 career. One victory ahead of big brother William now.

  19. That's a record

    Ballymoney man Dunlop has established a good gap at the front on his BMW as he aims to add to his four career wins at the North West. The 27-year-old sets a lap record of 123.207.

    Hutchinson and Rutter next, but Anstey seems to have hit problems.

    The race is red-flagged as Anstey comes off his Honda machine. Happily the popular Kiwi is OK.

  20. New leader

    Michael Dunlop is a man on a mission, hitting the front. Next comes Anstey, Ian Hutchinson, Michael Rutter, Peter Hickman, Lee Johnston, John McGuinness and Conor Cummins.
