Get ready for an adrenaline-fueled weekend as the Ulster Superbike Championship makes its highly anticipated return to Kirkistown Race Circuit next weekend. This special two-day event, marking Round 5 of the series, is scheduled for June 14-15 and is hosted by Temple Motorcycle Club in collaboration with Motorsport Enterprises.

The event will showcase some of Northern Ireland’s premier short circuit teams and riders, including stars like Korie McGreevy, Andy Reid, Ross Irwin, and Jonny Campbell.

In an exciting development for the series, Round 5 will feature a two-day format, incorporating Superbike, SuperSport, Supertwin, Classics, and Sidecar classes, setting a potential new standard for short circuit motorcycle race meetings.

Rider Highlights:

Jonny Campbell, riding for Magic Bullet, will compete on the Yamaha R1 and R6 in both the Superbike and Supersport classes. Campbell has been dominating the USBK Championship with an impressive start to the series.

Ross Irwin, also of Magic Bullet, currently holds third place in the Superbike Championship on his Honda Fireblade, while teammate Ajay Carey is gradually returning to form after shoulder surgery.

Dean McMaster, representing the JMcC Roofing Team, brings a wealth of experience from his road racing circuit this year. His teammate, former BSB star Andy Reid, is eager to get back on his ZX10 Kawasaki, aiming for a podium position in 2024.

Andrew Smyth of MPW Kawasaki is comfortably in fourth place in the Supersport class with his Kawasaki 636, looking forward to the extra track time at Kirkistown to fine-tune his performance.

With intense competition for podium positions from MacAdoo Racing’s Korie McGreevy, Lisburn’s Ryan Gibson, and Spence Engineering’s Aaron Spence, every second on the track will count.

Prizes and Awards:

Substantial monetary prizes and a host of silverware are up for grabs over the two days, significantly bolstered by sponsor SBT (Simple Business Telecom) Ireland for the Superbike races. Motorsport Enterprises will also organize a ‘shoot out’ across both days, awarding the Top 15 Superbikes and Supersports the ‘Fastest Lap of the Meeting’ Cup. Road Racing Ireland will present a trophy for ‘Rider of the Meeting’ along with a £100 prize. Additionally, the Philip Wylie Trophy will be awarded to the ‘Best Newcomer’ on the day.

An organizer noted, “The June event at Kirkistown is a must-see on the racing calendar. Our local riders always impress and entertain. Local supporters never fail to show up and support the teams and all involved, and for that, we thank them in advance.”

Temple Motorcycle Club and Motorsport Enterprises extend their best wishes to all participants for an enjoyable and safe event and look forward to seeing everyone there!
