Macau: Irwin wins red-flagged Macau Grand Prix

Published: 18 November 2017

Glenn Irwin has taken a maiden victory at today’s red-flagged Macau Grand Prix.

The Ulsterman shot off the line from pole position, but Hickman managed to pass him early in the lap before the Be Wiser Ducati star, who won his first road race at the North West 200 earlier this year, was back in control by the end of the lap.

Irwin had a 1.1 second lead over Hickman, who was starting to close in in when red flags came out at the end of lap six following a serious incident. Michael Rutter finished third, some seven seconds behind Irwin.
