Ulster Supermoto Championship Round #2:
Nutt's Corner: Market Track
15th May 2011
Round two of the
championship took place this Sunday at a wet and rather
wintery-feeling Nutt’s Corner Market Track.
First to tackle the tricky conditions were
the supermoto quads where Cathal McCartan would attempt to
defend his great start to the season having won all three
races at the previous meeting. However,
leading from start to finish, Aaron Ebbitt...(pictured above)
was able to gap the Carrickmore rider McCartan to score maximum
points in race one.
Race two and three saw Ebbitt taking a clear
lead over McCartan. Ebbitt is now on the move in the leader
board in sixth with McCartan still leading the championship
with Emma Mackin and Brother Terence in
second and third in the championship respectively.
In the solo clubman class, championship
leader Lee Walker repeated his successful qualifying from round
one with another pole position. In race one
had a great start, as did Mark Todd, but were
passed in the last lap by Andy Forsberg...(pictured at right)
who took the win. Race two saw things going the way
Walker wanted to with another
win to his name. For the final race of the
day for the clubman’s, Walker and Todd pushed Forsberg hard all
the way to the line but couldn’t find a way past before the
The newly sponsored
Prestige class got underway with race one being run in
treacherous conditions. Barry Murphy took the early lead in
race one but was passed by the eventual
winner Philip Wylie....(#7 pictured above). Hot on his
heels for all three races was Mark Spratt who ended his day with
three second place finishes. The
final step of the podium was contended for
right to the line between Bruce Drummond and Barry Murphy.
Drummond took third in races one and two, with
Murphy finishing third in race three.
