Northern Ireland's Ryan Farquhar failed to repeat his 2011 victory in the Junior Classic race at the Manx Grand Prix after he was forced to retire on the opening lap of the race.
Farquhar, riding Roger Winfield's 350cc Honda, had been lying in third place when mechanical issues struck and he pulled out of the race at Brandywell.
That left adopted Manxman Chris Palmer, who lives in Castletown on the island, to take the silverware – his third victory at the Manx – by 35 seconds from Chris Swallow on the 350cc Aermacchi.
And although Farquhar was ruled out of contention for a rostrum place, fellow countryman Nigel Moore made it onto the podium with a fine ride to third on his 350cc Honda ahead of Alan Oversby.
Roy Richardson had set the pace and led by 38 seconds from Palmer after an opening lap of 102.327mph before machine trouble ruled him out at the Black Dub on lap two.
Peter Symes from Tamworth won the concurrently run 250cc race.
Today's racing had been postponed from Monday, when heavy rain and high winds lashed the Isle of Man.
Farquhar will be aiming to make amends in tomorrow's Classic Senior race, which is scheduled for a 10.15am start.
The Supertwin/Lightweight races, which will run concurrently, are due off at 1.15pm.
Both races will be held over four laps.
