Scottish rider Andy Lawson clinched victory in the Junior Manx Grand Prix on Wednesday on a day to forget for Rob Hodson.

Wigan rider Hodson had held a healthy lead in the race until he encountered an issue during his pit stop and in the end Lawson took the win by 12 seconds from newcomer Billy Redmayne. Irish rider Andy Farrell finished on the rostrum in third.

Hodson had opened a lead of 12.6 seconds at the halfway point of the race but saw his hopes evaporate due to a refuelling problem in the pits, dropping to eighth.
