MCLERNON CONTINUES DOMINATION OF ULSTER SERIES

August 6th, 2019.


The seventh round of the Ulster Quadcross & Sidecarcross Championship took place at Seaforde, County Down last Saturday the 3rd of August. McLernon continued his terrific 2019 form by winning the ATVs Only Premier class.


McLernon made his intentions clear from the start, setting the pace in timed qualifying with a best time of 1:47.875, but closest rival Justin Reid with a 1:48.778 was right on his tail. David Cowan was a little further back with a time of 1:50.284.


Reid #14 leads McLernon #919

In the ATVs Only opening moto, Reid led off the start but was soon passed by McLernon who went on to take the win ahead of Dillon and Reid. Race two was a flag to flag win for McLernon, with Reid in second all the way and Dillon third. The third race saw Dillon charge off the line but he dropped back to seventh, leaving the way clear for McLernon and Reid. Kyle Murphy picked up his pace to finish third, whilst Dillon recovered slightly to take sixth.
