Lisburn Crew Neil Campbell & Ross Graham took the overall in round three of the NI Sidecarcross Supporters Club Ulster Sidecarcross Championship at Seaforde last weekend.

This Saturday, attention turns to the solo riders as Lisburn man Richard Bird will now fight head to head with Portadvogie’s Robert Hamilton for the Irish title

That’s after title rival Wayne Garrett crashed heavily in the previous round, sustaining a broken leg amongst other injuries and puttimg himself out for the season.

Bird and Hamilton will battle it out in Round Five in Downpatrick this Saturday with Dromara rider Ryan Adair also hoping to make an impact, if he has recovered from his nasty crash at the recent Brian Bell meeting.

Racing starts around 11am and entry is £5 with U14s going free. The circuit is signposted off the old main Clough Road.
