A FINAL do or die move by North West 200 returnee Glenn Irwin saw him clinch a breathtaking win from Alastair Seeley in the Blue Ribbon Superbike Race.
Irwin lost the lead after being held up by a back-marker on the deciding lap as he approached Church Corner before snatching it back along the coast road.
