2019 ULSTER QUADCROSS ROUND 2

May 14th, 2019.

The 2019 Ulster Quadcross & Sidecarcross Championship rocked up to the sunny, but chilly, Tandragee MX Park for round two.


In the ATVs Only Premier Quad class, Milton Keynes based Hillsborough man, Mark McLernon was in dominant form once again with three wins from three starts. Leon Rogers, from Navan, in second overall was the only man to briefly head McLernon when he grabbed the race three holeshot. Dean Dillon, from Moira, posted another podium to continue his fine run of form, which would have been better if he hadn’t stalled, however, the youngster is getting better with each race. English visitor Harry Walker - over for some practice prior to the British round at Tandragee over the next bank holiday weekend - was fourth. Tying with Walker was Justin Reid whose race card was ruined thanks to poor starts. Behind them, Scot Lorne Sinclair brought his brand-new machine home in sixth.


Premier Class winner Mark McLernon

The Gilchrist Plant Hire Clubman’s Support Class was won by Omagh youngster Jamie Quinn, who was followed home by another young star Jack Young from Lisburn, with Dromore veteran Kyle Orr third. After three great races, Orr and Sean Cassidy tied on points, while Pat Whelan and David Brown rounded out the top six.


Justin Reid

In the supporting J&L Race Prep/Lloyd Acoustics/Stephen Russell Youth Quad Classes, the 250 Class was won by Mark Mulholland chased home by Mitchell Adams with Josh McKight completing the podium, fourth to sixth were Ian Harron, Ross Dillon and Jack Minish.

The 110 Class win was taken by Harry Minish ahead of Dromore girl Chloe Gibson, who claimed another great podium alongside brother Adam, who joined her in third. Fourth was Thomas McNulty, and fifth and sixth were Travis Toye and Daniel Duddy.


Y2 start

The 50cc Automatic Class was won by Connor Bradley ahead of Alfie Brown and Adrian McVey.

Next up for Quadcross action in Northern Ireland is a British Championship double header with round two at Tandragee on the 25th of May and round three at Tinker Hill the following day.
