| TEMPLE 100 RACES - Nutts Corner
It was the turn of the Temple Motorcycle Club to run a short circuit event,
in place of a road race, and this time was held at Nutts Corner, Co. Antrim.
The man of the meeting had to be Rodney McCurdy on P.J. O'Kane R71 Yamaha,
who won the first Open race and the feature race of the day 'The Temple 100'
In the second Open race it was Adrian Archibald that beat McCurdy to the
line. In the other big bike class, the Regal 600 it was Richard Britton and
Ryan Rainey who took the spoils, after both being very quiet races, in
relation to what a 600cc race is normally like.
In the Superkings 125cc Race it was Darran Lindsay who achieved a double.
In the first race, two of the top challengers to Lindsay crashed out, and in
the second race he worked hard for his win. In the other smaller bike
class, it was Matt Niland who finally defeated the dominant Marshall Neill,
but normal service was resumed when Neill won the second. In the 250cc GP
class Stephen Thompson stormed to an impress and comfortable win from Hilton
Hincks, and roles were reversed in the second race only this time Thompson
crossed the line directly behind Hincks.
With the weather perfect (well maybe a bit too warm for the riders) and the
event being run smoothly and efficiently by the Temple club, everyone have
an enjoyable days racing.
