Hollow Macau GP Win For Irwin

Paul Bird Motorsport rider Glenn Irwin was declared the winner of the Sun City Group Macau Grand Prix 51st Edition following a red flag on the sixth lap of the 12-lap race. 
 
The 27 year old from Carrickfergus in County Antrim was leading double winner Peter Hickman by over a second on the factory-supported and Metzeler-shod Be Wiser TAK CHUN Racing by PBM/Penz13 Ducati Panigale R when the race was stopped prematurely.
 
The organisers later declared a result and held a sombre podium ceremony prior to announcing that English rider Dan Hegarty had sustained fatal injuries in the accident. 

Glenn Irwin: “I appreciate all the congratulations, but the result is irrelevant, and all our thoughts are with Dan’s team and family at this very sad time. As far as the race is concerned, I had a non-mechanical technical issue which nearly caused me to pull in on the opening lap, but I adjusted my style and it worked OK. It's a very sad end to what has been a successful week.”

PBM team-mate Dan Kneen from Braddan in the Isle of Man finished 11th on the second Metzeler-shod Be Wiser TAK CHUN Racing by PBM/Penz13 Ducati Panigale R.

The result saw Irwin become the first Ulsterman in 21 years to take a win around the Far East track and it was Ducati’s first victory there since 2010. It also added to Irwin’s North West 200 Superbike race victory and maiden BSB win this season and was PBM’s fourth Macau Grand Prix victory.  

Glenn Irwin: “I appreciate all the congratulations, but the result is irrelevant, and all our thoughts are with Dan’s team and family at this very sad time."
