Forcefield supported racer Jamie Hamilton got the 2013 road racing season underway at Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough on Sunday and it proved to be a winning start with the Ballymena man taking two victories in the Supertwins class.
Riding for the KMR Kawaski team of Ryan Farquhar, Jamie led both races from start to finish for his first wins around the 2.43-mile woodland venue and backed this up with an excellent third in the solitary Superbike race after earlier winning his heat race. Having his first outing in three years on a Supersport machine, he also posted impressive results of fifth and sixth in the two 600cc events.
Speaking at the end of the day, a pleased team principle, Farquhar commented; “It’s been a long and busy winter so it’s been good to finally go racing and for our first meeting, it’s been a successful outing. Jamie gave us our first wins of the season in fine style and he looked really comfortable out there on both the Supertwin and Superbike machines. He hasn’t ridden a Supersport machine since he last rode in the British Championship in 2010 though and it’s going to take him a while to get used to it again but he had two good rides today and got quicker each time he went out so he’s made good progress.”
Jamie and the KMR Kawaski team will next be in action at The Cookstown 100 road races which take place on Saturday, April 27th.
