Turn left and head towards Ballasalla. Go through Ballasalla - over the level crossing, passing the Whitestone Pub and turning left at the roundabout at Ballasalla Stores. Continue towards Cross Four
Ways and onto the Southern 100 course in reverse, passing through Billown and heading towards Ballabeg Corner. At Ballabeg Corner turn left and continue to Ballakeighan Corner where you again
turn left onto the Castletown-By-Pass. At Castletown go straight on at the traffic lights at the railway bridge (leaving the Southern 100 course) and keeping left at the next roundabout, pass the Viking &
Sidings Pubs and the Station Garage. Turn left at the Janets Corner roundabout, pass King Williams College and back to the Airport roundabout.
After 2 laps, turn back into the Industrial Estate for a further lap of the estate, following the same route as at the beginning of the race, noting that the Finish Line is close to the lane leading to the old
