Dundrod 150 Round Up

The traditional curtain raiser ahead of Ulster GP race day, the annual Dundrod 150 races today showcased in full the talents in particular of next generation road racers, such as Joe Thompson.

Protege of Dundrod legend Ian Lougher, Joe was declared winner of the National race, which was red flagged on lap three, as fellow event newcomers Davey Todd and Jonathan Perry, claimed the remaining spots on the podium.

Paul Robinson set a new 125/Moto 3 lap record of 110.311 mph, on his way to securing Ultra Lightweight honours, to the tune of only half a second over Bob Wylie Racing’s Christian Elkin, as rising roads star Adam McLean finalised the rostrum finishers.

Bruce Anstey’s highly touted two stroke Dundrod race debut, did not disappoint with the flying Kiwi dominating the Lightweight race, emerging victorious by almost 39 seconds over nearest challenger Logan Racing’s Neil Kernohan.

Davy Morgan won a four battle for third, edging out leading 400 runner Callum Laidlaw, Paul Owen and Seamus Elliott.

Unfortunately as in the National race, more red flags arose around Dundrod, in the Challenge race, the first been for an incident involving Davey Todd, who was perfectly ok.

Then almost immediately after the race re start, another incident, this time at Lougher’s would ultimately halt proceedings for the remainder of this evening’s race schedule.
