COOKSTOWN 100 DOUBLE FOR GUY MARTIN & TYCO BMW


Guy Martin took a double in today's Superbike races at the KDM Hire Cookstown 100, making it three wins for the Lincolnshire man on Tyco BMW S1000 RR Superstock machinery this month.

In the opening encounter Martin held off a late charge from Michael Dunlop to take the win by just 0.114sec, but all the drama came in the feature race of the day – the KDM Hire Cookstown 100 Superbike race.

Martin led for the opening six laps, which he relinquished for a short period on lap seven, but a red flag incident involving Michael Dunlop forced the race to be stopped.

The end result was a second Superbike win for Martin with his Tyco BMW team-mate William Dunlop coming through from the second group to finish fourth on corrected time. Dunlop was fifth in the opening Superbike encounter.

Guy Martin: “I could have smoked a Woodbine in that last race, the Superstock BMW was so stable and working just mint. I was never under any pressure and when Dunlop came past, I thought, 'this will give me a chance to have a look at what he is doing and plan my pass for the last lap'. We certainly had an advantage on the back part of the circuit and definitely the speed on the front straight to make the pass. It didn't need to happen, but a good day all round and just what we needed."
