Anstey races to North-West treble
Bruce Anstey
Bruce Anstey had a crash and three wins at the North-West
Bruce Anstey crashed out of the first Superbike race but went on to claim a remarkable hat-trick at the Kennedy International North-West 200.

The flying Kiwi came off his Suzuki at the York corner but was not hurt and returned to the course to win the Superstock and both Supersport races.

Steve Plater and John McGuinness won the shortened Superbike events.

Christian Elkin, on his North-West debut, won the 250cc event while Oliver Linsdell took the 400/125 race.

Plater's success came in the main Superbike which was shortened to three laps as the original running was abandoned when Cameron Donald came off his machine.

It is understood Australian Donald sustained a broken collarbone in an accident on the coast road.

Morecambe's John McGuinness won the opening Superbike race which was also cut short after Anstey's crash.

Later McGuinness was vying for a Superbike double but, on the final lap of the main event, he missed a chicane after being forced out by Guy Martin.

It left Martin claiming runners-up spot with Michael Rutter third and McGuinness fourth.

Anstey sat out the second Superbike race as his bike could not be fully repaired in time.

Elkin pipped McGuinness in an exciting finish to the 250 during which both men were held up by backmarkers.

Linsdell won the 400/125cc race on his 400 Yamaha with Michael Wilcox second and Robert Dunlop third.
