Swallow equals Pre-TT win record

Bill Swallow has made history at the Blackford Pre-TT Classic.

The Huddersfield rider took the chequered flag in the Office Equipment CentreĀ Singles Classic Race on his 350 Aermacchi.

It was his 15th Pre-TT victory, equalling Bob Heath's record

Roy Richardson looked to have the 350 class sewn up, until mechanical problems forced him to retire at Maggie's on the last lap.

Swallow took advantage of the Blackpool man's misfortune to cross the line first, as described by Manx Radio TT365's Charlie Lambert: (play audio)

Alan Oversby was second, Mike Hose third.

In the 250 class Bob Millinship was first - his maiden Pre-TT win - ahead of 84-year-old Ted Fenwick and newcomer Keith Shannon.
