 TEMPLE 100 RACES - Nutts Corner

Darran LindsayJohn Donnan
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.

Rodney McCurdy

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.
