Ivan Lintin won Saturday's tragic Supertwins race at the North West 200, which was red-flagged due to a fatal accident involving young prospect Malachi Mitchell-Thomas.

Lintin was out in the lead on the Devitt RC Express Kawasaki when the incident occurred on the third lap.

The result was declared, with the Lightweight TT winner taking a sombre victory by five seconds from Martin Jessopp on the Riders Motorcycles Kawasaki, with last year's winner Jeremy McWilliams third on the SGS KMR Kawasaki.

Lintin also set a new lap record for the class at 109.304mph.

Speaking before Mitchell-Thomas' death was confirmed, Lintin said: "Yeah that's good isn't it? I didn't know whether we'd get that today really. I had a plan in my head to get my head down and try and break everybody.

"I got a lead a couple of years ago and got caught by Lee Johnston at Juniper chicane, so I had it in my head not to do that again. I'm looking forward to the TT now."

James Cowton, Michael Sweeney and Canadian rider Darren James were the top six.
