Irwin racing traveled to Oulton Park this weekend to take part in the second round of the BSB.
Caolán Irwin on his R&R Racing Yamaha had a very strong qualifying and consistent lap times showed great promise on saturday finishing race 1 in 12th place.
Race 2 with changing track conditions continued with fast race pace and the Kilmacrennan racer finished a solid 12 again. ‘This is my first year in this class, which is proving to be the premier BSB class this year with very fast professional racers and a full grid. I am delighted to be up there towards the front of the pack fighting for championship points’
Younger brother Rhys had a character building weekend on his factory Triumph. ‘This has been a real tough weekend. The team are struggling with mechanical problems all weekend making the bike really hard to ride. I missed qualifying due to mechanical failure and had to start the race from the back of the grid P33 and really fought my way up to 13th to get a few points on the board. Today the team continued to struggle, and I didnt finish race 2. It is really disappointing but we will regroup and get ready for the next round in 3 weeks time’
