At the other end of the real road racing spectrum, Barry Davidson further fastened-up his status as an all-time Irish road racing great, by taking his overall total of Irish road race victories to 96, after successes in the Junior 350 Classics, Supersport 300 races.

Jonathan Watt headed Michael Gillan, Jacque Foley within today’s sole Junior Support encounter whilst others emerging victorious today at Walderstown were the following:

Brian Mateer (Junior 250 Classics), Richard Ford (Senior 1000 Classics), John Leigh Pemberton (Senior 500 Classics) and runaway Super Twins race winner, despite starting from the second wave, the in-form Michael Sweeney.
