2019 has wrapped up another highly successful International Island Classic, with Australia claiming the International Challenge Three Nations victory from the USA and New Zealand, while Steve Martin took top individual honours with the Ken Wootton Perpetual Trophy.

There was however a huge variety of classic racing on over the weekend, with over 50 races in total being run, and 21 classes duking it out for individual honours, as well as the Phil Irving Memorial Trophy, which goes to the top individual point scorer outside of the International Challenge races.

The Phil Irving Memorial Trophy takes into account results across all classes but the International Challenge, meaning the winner each year has normally made their mark across a number of classes to claim victory.

2019 was no different, however three riders laid claim to the title after tying on 200 points a-piece, with Levi Day, Lachlan Hill and Tom Bramich the top scorers.

Levi Day competed across the 250cc New Era and 500cc New Era classes, Lachlan Hill competed across the 250cc Forgotten Era and 350cc Forgotten Era classes, and Tom Bramich was to be found racing the 500cc Post Classic and 500cc Forgotten Era classes over the weekend.

Each of these riders won these respective classes, and you can check out the full victors list below:
