One of the sons of the late motorcycle legend Robert Dunlop has won the first race at the North West 200.
Michael Dunlop's father, who was 47, was killed in a high-speed crash during a practice lap for the races on Thursday.
His funeral will take place on Sunday in Garryduff Presbyterian Church.
After winning the 250cc race Michael dedicated the victory to his father saying: "I had to do it for him, and I done it."

Robert's widow, Louise, said the rider believed the sport would eventually kill him but he was prepared to accept the risk.
