The reduced in distance to just three laps Clogher Valley Windows open race at Enniskillen, proved tumultuous and some for popular race victor Forest Dunn.
Cornwall’s Dunn, competing aboard his own team’s GSX-R 1000 Suzuki, proved untouchable within the three lap encounter.
Quickly overhauling pole sitter Kevin Fitzpatrick, Dunn went onto seal race spoils by the impressive margin of 3.3 seconds, as Ballymoney’s Darryl Tweed led the challenge to the Cornwall racer.
Finalising the podium finishers behind Tweed was Davies Motorsport’s Dominic Herbertson, whilst opening Supersport race winner Fitzpatrick had to settle for a solid fourth place finish.
Fifth place finisher Ryan Maher kept up his good form, Red Line Road Racing’s David Murphy placed a more than creditable sixth.
Team DHR’s Gareth Keys finished seventh, local favourite Paul Gartland was eighth, Alan Johnston acquired ninth as experienced Scottish roads exponent Donald MacFadyen concluded the top ten finishers.
Remaining finishers from the three lap race were Stephen ‘Degsy’ Degnan, and Dennis Booth.
