Southern Centre DVD is one to watch

WITH Christmas only around the corner, Duke Marketing has a lovely DVD to add to the present list, and it is this year's Southern 100.

Known as the 'Friendly Races', the Southern is a cracking meeting, and this year's event was one of the best. Michael Dunlop was the star of the show, setting new lap and course records along the way to winning the top five races of the meeting, beating the likes of Guy Martin, Conor Cummins and Ryan Farquhar into the bargain. The opening Supertwin race was one of the closest of the whole meeting, with Ryan Farquhar and Jamie Hamilton only separated by 0.197 of a second. The sidecar class produced a history-making race when newcomer Tim Reeves - passengered by the experienced Dan Sayle - won his race as a newcomer to the course, and the Birchall brothers, also newcomers, won the other race. All races over the three days are covered in the 186 minutes of coverage, and I highly recommend it. The DVD can be purchased on line at £19.99 from Duke, or you can contact them direct at 0044-1624640000 in order to have the DVD wrapped in time for Christmas. Keep 'er lit!
