Cookstown Preview Series Part 2 – Super Twin/Lightweight Races
Road Racing News preview series about the 100th Anniversary Cookstown 100 meeting, focuses today upon the always entertaining Super Twin, Lightweight 250/400 classes.

Super Twins:

Amongst the firm favourites for Super Twins honours this week will include McAdoo Kawasaki’s Adam McLean.

650cc Twins winner times two at the recent Ulster Superbike Championship Kirkistown meet, McLean has proven on countless occasions his prowess, quality and it’s going to take faultless displays from fellow competitors to stop him adding to his Cookstown wins resume.

Strongest candidates to get the better of McLean include Cowton Racing’s Dominic Herbertson and 2019 Duke Road Race Rankings Champion Michael Sweeney.

Both have the skillset to bank on Saturday feature Twins race success whilst added ones to watch include:

Neil Kernohan, Paul ‘Potchy’ Williams, Stephen McKnight, Darryl Anderson, Eric Wilson, Kris Duncan and Orritor Circuit first timers Milo Ward, Julian Trummer, Switzerland’s Ivo Ladde, Jay Bellers Smith, ‘Tommy Club’ member Dan Ingham.

Overall class entry numbers stand at almost 45 with a great mix of rising roads exponents, seasoned Cookstown competitors, ambitious newcomers set to take in 650 Twins/Super Mono combined competition.


Looking towards the Lightweight class which incorporates 250, 400 steeds, standout entrants include Ballymoney’s Darryl Tweed.

As shown at the Ulster Grand Prix, Manx Grand Prix and the majority of national events, Tweed is without question one of the best 400 machinery pilots and will be a major contender this week for overall Lightweight honours.

The likes of Davy Morgan (DM71 Racing 250 Honda), David Howard, Paul Gartland (TED Racing), Paul ‘Potchy’ Williams, Kris Duncan, Keelim Ryan (Faraldo Racing) are additional contenders for first rate results.

Further depth to the Lightweight field is provided by racers such as Brian Loughlin, Germany’s Chris Meyer, JY Roofing and Roof Windows supported Gareth Arnold, Kevin Barsby and Cookstown debutant Dan Ingham.
