| Archibald Wins Hat-trick at Mid-Antrim 150
Apart from a few showers of rain, the racing was top class and is was great
to see road racing in Ulster again.
The man of the day was the unstoppable Adrian Archibald, who won three races
from three. Archibald on the Red Bull Honda Racing machinery, won all the
large capacity races, the two Open class races and the 600cc race. He ran
away with the opening class races and won by a comfortable distance, and
Richard Britton pushed him hard in the 600 race. Another unstoppable rider
on the roads this season is Robert Dunlop who yet again took victory in the
125cc class, despite being pushed hard by Mark Curtin. . . . Who is going to
stop these two Ballymoney men ? With the Ulster Grand Prix only two weeks
away who can stop them from winning in there respective classes ?
It was Richard Britton who won the 250cc class, on only his second outing on
the machine this season. In the 750cc Support Class, Ian Forrestial lost
his 100% record when local man Dennis Booth beat him to the post. In the
400cc Support class it was James McCullough who took the honours. In the
Classic races it was Karl Wilkie that won the big class, and Colin Rodgers
won the smaller class.
A safe, enjoyable and successful days racing it was at the Clough circuit.
All can be left to be said now is .. roll on the Ulster Grand Prix!!
