Amor wins Dundrod 150 superbike

Published: 13 August 2010

Keith Amor won yesterday’s six-lap Dundrod 150 Superbike race riding his superstock BMW with a fastest lap of 132.005mph.

Amor’s task was eased after Ian Hutchinson’s Padgetts Honda engine expired on the third lap when the pair of them were running nose to tail on track.

Guy Martin came out on top after a thrilling four-way battle for second place, the Wilson Craig Honda rider beating Michael Dunlop’s StreetSweep/Robinsons Concrete Honda across the line by 0.42s with Relentless by TAS Suzuki pair  Bruce Anstey and Cameron Donald only inches behind them.

James McBride completed the top six, clocking his personal best of a 129.335mph lap on the Downview Finance /Pazzo Racing Yamaha.

Ulster GP newcomer Manxman Dan Kneen was in great form in the support races, beating fellow rookie Dave Johnson by 0.084s in the superstock National Challenge race after earlier winning the supersport National Challenge race, again coming home in front of Johnson – but this time by a comfortable 7.64s margin.

Completing his great day, Kneen also finished second on a Yamaha-framed, Kawasaki-powered machine in the SuperTwins race to Ryan Farquhar on his KMR Kawasaki. 

Running concurrently with the Twins class, William Dunlop took the GP125 category by almost 5.0s from Paul Robinson. Ian Lougher was battling with Dunlop until his Honda on the fourth lap.

The Classic race produced a fantastic scrap between Olie Linsdell and Ryan Farquhar on exotic Paton 500 twins until the latter broke down. Linsdell went on to win the race by a minute and a half from Neill McWhirter’s Manx Norton.
