Michael Rutter has recorded his 14th career victory at the North West 200 having ended the second Supertwins race on Saturday by just 0.6s from Dan Cooper.

After the blast off the line Rutter, Cooper and Thursday’s Supertwins race winner Martin Jessopp enjoyed a race-long tussle for victory with just 0.7s separating the trio at the start of the fourth and final lap.

At Mathers Cross Cooper leapt from third to first but Rutter got back ahead at Magherabuoy to stretch clear, only crossing the line 0.697s ahead of Cooper and Jessopp.

Michael Sweeney finished a distant fourth ahead of Paul Lennon and James Cowton.
