John Burrows was one of the stars of the 2011 Adelaide Insurance International Kells Road Races which were staged in County Meath last weekend, July 16/17. After qualifying had finished on the Saturday evening, John unwound and relaxed before a tough day's racing by mingling with supporters at a great barbeque which was laid on by the Joni B Supporters Club.

The weather on race day was miserable but the rain did not deter the Dungannon racer from putting on a great show for the thousands of fans who turn up annually for the Kells Club's popular and well run promotion.

Early in the Supertwins race, Burrows built up a good lead with his KBM Kawasaki 650, but Michael Sweeney managed to reduce the lead and somewhat stole the victory in the closing stages. Burrows was disappointed to lose the race but took some consolation from the fact that he took another step towards retaining the Irish Supertwins title by beating Andy Farrell, the man closest to him in the points standings. Farrell was third.

In the two races for 1000cc Superbikes, Burrows mixed it with the men who had star billing - the Dunlop Brothers and Australian Cameron Donald. In the Senior Championship race, Burrows led for two laps but his choice of a soft compound rear wet tyre let him down and he slipped back to fourth at the finish behind Michael Dunlop, William Dunlop and Donald.

John said: "The tyre I chose was a little too soft and it just fell to pieces in the closing stages of the race. It was spinning everywhere and had to ease my pace."

Burrows made another blinding start in the Grand Final but his tyre woes came back to deny him a rostrum finish. With safety being paramount, Burrows cut back the revs on the Cookstown/BE Suzuki 1000 and brought it home in a very respectable fifth place. Donald was the winner.

Burrows completed a good day's work with fourth place in the Supersport 600 race which was won by William Dunlop. On the last lap Burrows made a successful bid for fourth which relegated Southern Ireland's current number one road racer, Derek Sheils, to fifth.

This coming weekend, the Cookstown/BE Racing team will make the long journey to County Limerick for the annual Athea Road Races.
