    North West 200 races

    So the curtain comes down on a terrific North West 200 meeting.

    Ducati rider Glenn Irwin may take the headlines by becoming the first man for 12 years to win both Superbike races.

    But the man of the meeting award goes to Alastair Seeley who won today's Supersport and Superstock races.

    So three wins overall in the meeting for 38-year-old Seeley and now has a remarkable record 24 wins at the North West.

    Hats off too to James Cowton who won the Supertwin races 0- his maiden North West victory.

    Thanks for following all the action with us. Goodbye.

  2. Winner's words

    Quote Message: I'm delighted to share the podium with Michael Dunlop and Lee Johnston. I know people think there is a kind of feud between me and Michael, but I look up to him as a road racer. Hopefully we can shake hands and put that one to bed. from Glenn Irwin Superbike winner

  3. Irwin doubles up

    North West 200 Superbike Race Two

    Glenn Irwin wins the second Superbike race, dominating from start to finish.

    British Superbike star pulled away from a high-quality field to secure his second 'big bike' success of the day.

    The 28-year-old British Superbike star has won the last three Superbike races at the Triangle circuit, having taken the honours in last year's feature.

    It was not the exciting duel served up in 2017 by Irwin and Alastair Seeley, but the Ducati victor punches the air as he takes the applause from the fans.

    It is a Northern Irish 1-2-3 as Michael Dunlop is runner-up ahead of third-placed Lee Johnston.

    Irwin celebrates by throwing his boots into the crowd.

  7. Red flag

    North West 200 Superbike Race Two

    Racing is halted on the opening lap after a rider crashes at Ballysally. The injured competitor is receiving medical treatment.

    He is taken to the local Causeway Hospital, but race organisers say the injuries are not serious.

    It means a delay of 20 minutes before the Superbikes gets going again for a restarted race over the full seven laps.

  9. Post update

    North West 200 Superbike Race Two

    Time for the main event of the day - the showpiece North West 200 Superbike race over seven laps.

    British Superbike contender Glenn Irwin won the feature last year and also took the honours in today's first Superbike race.

    So can we make him favourite ahead of record breaker Alastair Seeley?

    Ducati man Irwin should certainly be the fresher rider, having had one race today, compared to Seeley's three.

  10. Seeley completes hat-trick

    North West 200 Superstock race

    The record-breaker keeps setting new standards! It is race win number 24 now for Alastair Seeley who passes Peter Hickman to win the Superstock race. Third place goes to Dean Harrison.

    So a third win of the meeting for the Wee Wizard from Carrickfergus.

    It was an exciting finish as Seeley nipped past Hickman at Juniper to claim the win.

    "I tried to keep them guessing which way I was going to do," said Seeley.

    "I went the long way round and luckily it paid off."
