Falkirk’s Keith Amor did the double yesterday in the first of three days racing over the Easter weekend.  Amor who took the his opening win of the day in the Killinchy & District MCC and MCRRCI jointly hosted Superbike Festival at Bishopscourt, in the Supersport class, ahead of Moneyreagh’s Michael Pearson who initially had the holeshot.

It wasn’t long before Amor was heading the field, taking the win ahead of Pearson, Mark Lunney and William Dunlop when the race was prematurely ended when Dunlop’s younger brother Michael parted company with his machinery, thankfully uninjured.

Amor’s second win of the day came in the Irish Superbike race when he took a start to finish win, well clear of the battling second placed duo, of Lincolnshire’s Gary Johnston and Newtownards man Kirk Jamison (who incidentally was the team captain of the recently victorious Northern Ireland Moto Six team). Mark Johnston was fourth.


In the Clubman’s 601cc to 1010cc race it was an exciting battle between the Rea and Irwin boys (reminiscent of a few years ago when their fathers Johnny Rea Snr and Alan Irwin often locked together in conflict) Glenn Irwin, took the victory for the Irwin camp ahead of Richard Rea, despite recovery from a broken ankle sustained only a matter of a few weeks ago at the King of Bishopscourt meeting. Another member of a well-known racing family, Kenny Robinson, nephew of the late Donny Robinson was third placed.

In the tiddlers, the 125cc race it was Mark Lunney who took the win ahead Paul Robinson, whilst his cousin William Dunlop took the race win in the 250cc class ahead of David Craig and Thomas Lawlor. The Supertwins race saw another closely fought battle between Lee Hill and Alan Glasgow, which saw Hill take the win ahead of Glasgow and Gary Matthews.

Today sees the main feature race, the Enkalon Trophy race being held along with two more races for each class and also races for sidecars and Classic. Monday will also see more racing when the Irish Superbike circus crosses Strangford Lough to Kirkistown.
