Road Racing Daily Gary Dunlop winning the 125/Moto3 race at the 2019 Kells Road Races

CC’S UNLIMITED KELLS ROAD RACES ROUND UP

 

Derek Sheils was the man on form in the premier class today at Kells taking both big bike wins and looking utterly convincing in the process onboard the Burrows Engineering/ RK Racing Suzuki. 

 

The Irishman won the opening Superbike encounter by 6.3s ahead of Michael Sweeney with Thomas Maxwell finishing in a superb third place. In the grand final Sheils was imperious on his way to securing victory by a margin of 14.9s over Paul Jordan. Thomas Maxwell picked up a brace of Superbike podiums finishing again in third position.  

 

Paul Jordan took the spoils in the day’s only Supersport affair. Riding his own team’s Yamaha R6, Jordan finished 8.5s clear of Michael Sweeney with Ballymoney’s Darryl Tweed rounding out the podium places.

 

There was a popular win for Gary Dunlop in the 125/Moto3 race. With the lead chopping and changing over the course of the race, Dunlop eventually crossed the line to take victory by 1.5s over second placed man Kevin Fitzpatrick. Melissa Kennedy was in third. 

 

In the Classic stakes, Ed Manly scored a double taking victory in the Junior 350 and Senior 500 classes. Brian Mateer run out the victor in the Junior 250 class with Senior 1000 honours going to Richard Ford. 

 

In the Junior Support Race, Eoin O’Siochru was victorious following a hard fought battle with Kevin Baker; the winning margin a mere 0.3s. Vinny Brennan was 5.4s down the road in third place. Senior Support spoils went to Andy McAllister, who is enjoying a real purple patch of late. Kevin Baker made it a brace of second places in the support classes with Dermot Cleary in third places. 

 

Darryl Anderson won the restarted Lightweight Support race after having battled throughout the race with second placed Gareth Keys, and third placed man Stephen Morrison, just 2.4s covered the top three riders.

 

Andy Farrell won the day’s only Supertwins race finishing 0.894s ahead of Kevin Baker with Vinny Brennan finishing in third place.

SHEILS DOES THE SUPERBIKE DOUBLE AT KELLS

 

Derek Sheils completed a Superbike double today at the CC’s Unlimited Kells Road Races. The Irishman produced an unrivalled performance in the Principal Insurance grand final to add to his earlier Superbike victory in the day’s Open Race. 

 

Pole sitter Sheils, riding the Burrows Engineering / RK Racing Suzuki, finished almost fifteen seconds ahead of Paul Jordan with Thomas Maxwell finishing in a fine third place. It was another dominant showing from Sheils who once more underlined his position as the man to beat in the premier class. He led throughout the race leaving his rivals in his wake and he will leave Kells no doubt buoyed by his stand-out performances. 

 

Forest Dunn finished in a credible fourth place with Kevin Fitzpatrick crossing the line in fifth. Next up was Gareth Keys in sixth on his return to big bike racing riding for Team DHR. 

 

Ballymoney’s Darryl Tweed finished in seventh place with the remaining top ten positions being filled by Alan Connor, Paul Gartland and the ever popular Czech, Michal Dokoupil.

DEREK SHEILS STORMS TO SUPERBIKE AND SUPERSPORT POLE AT KELLS

 

Derek Sheils topped the timesheets in both the Superbike and Supersport classes today at the CC’s Unlimited Kells Road Races to claim pole position ahead of racing tomorrow. 

 

In almost perfect conditions around the Crossakiel course, Sheils was in imperious form putting the Burrows Engineering/ RK Racing Suzuki on Open / Grand Final pole 1.3s clear of Martin Jones Racing’s Michael Sweeney. Paul Jordan was the top 600cc qualifier going third quickest, a further half second back on Sweeney. 

 

Manx Grand Prix winners Thomas Maxwell, Andy Farrell and Darryl Tweed qualified in fourth, fifth and sixth respectively. Alan Connor qualified in seventh with Kevin Fitzpatrick, Forest Dunn and Paul Gartland making up the rest of the top ten places. 

 

In the day’s only timed Supersport session it was Sheils once again who managed to secure pole position. Riding the Roadhouse Macau Yamaha R6, the Irishman went two tenths quicker than Paul Jordan, who was riding his own team’s Yamaha R6. Michael Sweeney was third fastest. 

 

Darryl Tweed and Andy Farrell rounded out the top five places. Kevin Fitzpatrick, Thomas Maxwell, Forest Dunn, Michal Dokoupil and Ryan Maher rounded out the top ten.

CC’S UNLIMITED KELLS ROAD RACES QUALIFYING ROUND UP AND RESULTS 

 

Road racing finally returned to Kells for the first time since 2015 and in what can only be described as perfect conditions, the organisers managed to treat the bumper crowd to a well managed, action packed day of qualifying. 

 

Derek Sheils scored a double pole success when he topped the tables in the Open / Grand Final and Supersport Classes. 

 

A late entry for the event, Sheils first qualified the Burrows Engineering/ RK Racing Suzuki on pole before doing the same in the Superpsort class onboard the Roadhouse Macau Yamaha R6. In the open qualifying session Michael Sweeney was second quickest with Paul Jordan third fastest overall, but those positions were reversed for 600cc qualifying. 

 

Skerries man Andy Farrell secured Supertwins pole ahead of Vinny Brennan but Brennan was enjoying a great day going quickest in the Junior Support class. Senior Support pole was claimed by Andy McAllister who was 0.6s quicker than Nigel McAuley. 

 

Kevin Fitzpatrick grabbed pole in the 125/Moto3 class and Darryl Anderson was the pole sitter in the Lightweight Support class. 

 

In the Junior Classics, Brian Mateer and Barry Davidson were the fastest 250 and 350 riders respectively. Barry Davidson made it a double pole as he was the fastest in the Senior Classics 500 category with Richard Ford the quickest 1000 rider.
