Road Racer’s Adventures: USBK Round 1, Bishopscourt National Circuit

Road Racer’s Adventures: USBK Round 1, Bishopscourt National Circuit

Not for the first time, a name we will all know was winning today at Bishopscourt, the rain! Got to smile haven’t you!

Post just seven races, organisers made the decision to cancel the remaining races following persistent inclement weather allied to poor circuit conditions.

Before the rain took the spoils, the opening Ulster Superbike Championship meeting of 2024 proved prosperous for a select group of notorious roads scene exponents.

Never Be Clever Racing’s Darryl Tweed, due to make in May his IRRC debut at the Varsselring, sped to opening Lightweight Supersport race success ahead of prospective Northwest 200 first-timer Graham McAleese.

Andy Kildea bagged opening Senior Classic 1000 honours whilst Junior 350 Classics race 1 victory went to three times Manx Grand Prix winner, Nigel Moore.

Triangle, Dundrod course specialist Christian Elkin opened his 2024 race season, in robust style scoring top three finishes in today’s sole Super Twins, Supersport races.

Elkin narrowly missed out on Ashvale Engineering/SG Jones Supersport victory, after a final lap showdown with Daniel Matheson, saw the 515-plate carrier emerge on top.

Got to note as well the evergreen Paul Cranston’s feats, a top ten finisher in the Hinch Distillery/Megoran Quarries Superbike race.

Over forty years involved in racing, back in 1982 he won the 500cc race at still the world’s fastest road race, the Ulster Grand Prix.
