Irwin claims Sunflower victory in BSB studded podium!

Glenn Irwin added his name to an elite list that will tonight also be etched on the Sunflower races cup.

Winning the race from a restart that Tyco’s BSB contender Christian Iddon had led before the red flag intervention, the Be Wiser Paul Bird rider took control of the race on lap 8 and pushed on to escape the threat of Iddon in 2nd with 2014 and 2015 winner and fellow BSB racer Danny Buchan, waiting in the wings for any error made, taking 3rd.

Treacherous wet weather threatened the early morning practise and qualifying sessions but in the end all the rain did was rinse off the immaculate looking Bishopscourt tarmac and circuit in general. Huge numbers of spectators turned up to watch the packed grids ‘duke’ it out in Irelands last short circuit meeting of 2016.

The colourful programme included in the £15 entry showed proof of generous sponsors of all races and prizes.
