A month after the Isle of Man calms down from two weeks of TT action, another race takes place on the 4.25-mile Billown Circuit in the southern part of the island – the Southern 100.

The Southern 100 began in 1955 with three races starting and finishing at Castletown. Forward to 2015, and there are now 12 races held on the same course. This year’s 59th edition of the Southern 100 once again saw Guy Martin earn a victory in the Ellan Vannin Fuels Senior Race – his 12th career Southern 100 race win.

Martin, who holds the Billown Circuit record of 2:13.923 (2013, Suzuki GSX-R1000), led all seven laps of the 2015 Southern 100 Senior race, posting a quickest lap of 111.693 on his final time around. But it wasn’t an easy victory; 11-time Isle of Man TT winner Michael Dunlop stayed with Martin for most of the race, and took second a mere 0.092 of a second behind.

Earning third on the Mar-Train Yamaha YZF-R1 was Dean Harrison. Rounding out the top five were Padgetts Honda’s Dan Kneen and the Lightweight TT winner, Ivan Lintin on a Kawasaki ZX-10R.

In the 2015 Southern 100 Radcliffe Butchers 600cc race, Seamus Elliot took a dominating win aboard his Yamaha YZF-R6. He was joined on the podium by Triumph’s Russ Mountford and Honda’s Dan Kneen.
