Keith Amor enjoyed an excellent debut at the Kells road races on Sunday and the Falkirk ace was able to claim both of the Supersport 600cc races after hard fought battles with Ryan Farquhar. He also took second place in the two Open races and he left the Crossakiel circuit with a whole clutch of silverware that included the Man of the Meeting and Best Newcomer accolades.
Having been forced to miss the previous weekend's Walderstown meeting due to a virus, Keith was keen to make amends and he did so immediately, just pipping Farquhar to the line in the 600cc Championship race on the Wilson Craig Honda. In the following Open race, there was again only fractions between the pair and, on this occasion, it was Keith who had to settle for second, just 0.8seconds adrift.
The non-Championship 600cc saw the two rivals again go head to head but it was Keith who came out on top at the end of the 8 laps for his second win of the day but such was the closeness of the race, there was only 0.097seconds between the dicing duo at the chequered flag. In the Grand Final, Keith, again on board the Phoenix Motorcycles Superstock Honda, took his second runner-up spot but he did have the consolation of setting the fastest lap of the day at 111.736mph.
After picking up his Man of the Meeting award, a delighted Keith said:
'Without doubt, this has been one of the most enjoyable day's racing I've ever had. The atmosphere was electric and the fans were unbelieveable, I've never seen anything like it - simply superb. The organisers put on a great meeting and couldn't do enough for me, so it's been a pleasure to be here.'
'Having missed the racing at Walderstown, I concentrated on getting fit for this one and the racing's been some of the toughest ever. There was nothing between Ryan and myself in any of the races and sometimes we were practically touching over the jumps - at 150mph! It was close but good, clean racing and you know Ryan will never do anything untoward so the pair of us gave it our all on every single lap!'
'We had a good bit of banter between the races and, like I say, it's been a terrific meeting and although I would have liked to have got the big bike wins, I can't be too greedy! The Dunlop boys were over again so it was great to repay them with some top class results and the Phoenix Honda again proved itself out on the roads so thanks to everyone for their support once more.'
