Bishopscourt, September 19.
After a difficult start to the day, getting the correct gearing to suit his bike, Redrock teenager Jordan Burrows managed a third in qualifying.
Bishopscourt is a fast track and the Kawasaki 300 are just flat out every where.
There was a good pace in qualifying with just one second splitting 1st to 3rd.
Race one, Burrows’s team put a new tyre on his bike and with a good start he got away, but not for long as his gearing just wouldn’t pull his bike down the straights.
However, Burrows fought hard for a 3rd place finish.
With the Ulster Championship in sight, Burrows had to fight harder for race two.
He made a few changes to his gearing to suit the fast straights.
Burrows got a great start and took the lead. Knowing he had a race in his own hands and that he needed to win it.
With one lap complete he crashed out at a fast turn 2 on the Bishopscourt track, which is not what he wanted as it meant he threw away a championship that could have gone down to the last race of the year, but it wasn’t to be.
With one race meeting to go Burrows has the chance to clinch second place in the Ulster & Irish Championship in the Production 250/300 class.
As well as this Burrows finished first in the Belfast & District Championship, which he was delighted with.
Burrows commented: “2015 was a hard season for us, however I have to thank all my sponsors for doing a great job and believing in me. Warde Groupage, Burrows Engineering, GWA Accounts, LA Kitchens, RJ classic car restoration, Raymy Greer and McKenna StoneCraft
