And Hutchy, although his Tuesday quali times had been forfeited due to illegal fuel … lol
It would be great if a member with access to BBCiplayer would try and get the NW200 files as well as the William Dunlop docu, shown Tuesday night down but I'm not quite sure on how to get rid off of the drm protection. I've done it before but it's been some time.

@Andy You can use a Chrome app called Beebs to access anything on BBC and ITV plus Channel 4. I have used it successfully from here for following BTCC.

I think this should show details: chrome://extensions/?id=opmliiafmgjkgkfadkpomlefdllhajdi. (If not you can find it in Chrome uner more tools / extensions.

Great finish in the supersport race with Lee Johnston taking the flag from Dean Harrison and James Hillier while favourite Alistair Seeley crashed from the lead on the final lap going into Juniper Hill chicane
