Southern 100 2015
2015 saw Southern 100 stalwart and road racing legend Guy Martin take the coveted solo championship award – a popular win for a fan favourite.
Local star Dan Kneen was there to keep Guy honest and they both had stiff competition from previous Southern 100 race winners Ivan Lintin, Michael Dunlop and Dean Harrison.
The sidecars have long been a key attraction at the 4.25 mile Billown course, putting on spectacular displays for the crowd as they battle for the lead on the narrow, bumpy roads which double as the circuit for just a few days every year.
The Diamond Jubilee year was no exception to the rule and the highly experienced field showed real class as they went hammer and tongs for the sidecar championship - just six seconds separated the top three outfits after eight laps!
Reeves, Holden, Bell, Harrison, Lambert, Birchall, Lockey, Hope – all the big road racing names were there and they all wanted the win.
With full highlights of every race and plenty of camera angles, including onboard, the official review brings the 2015 International Southern 100 Road Races right into your home where you can enjoy the action time and again.
60 Years of the Friendly Races
The Southern 100 is a remarkable road race that has always been so much more than the sum of its parts.
Nicknamed the ‘Friendly Races’ for the warm welcome it extends to all who race or watch, for sixty years the Southern 100 has been a firm favourite on the road racing calendar.
Raced on the technical 4.25 mile Billown Course, which has hardly changed since the first races in 1955, greats like Bob McIntyre, John Hartle, Joey Dunlop, Ray McCullough, Brian Reid and Phil McCallen have carved their own pieces of Southern 100 history.
Some racers have become almost synonymous with ‘Southern’, in particular Ian Lougher and Chris Palmer, who each became great supporters of the races and in return received plenty of support from the fans.
Here we have mined a rich vein of nostalgia to bring together a fascinating history of the first sixty years of the Southern 100.
Packed with footage and photographs showing some of the most memorable moments from Derek Ennett’s win in the inaugural 350cc event to the great battles between Guy Martin and Michael Dunlop of recent years, this is a superb memento of an historic year for the Southern 100.
