Just a week after a successful trip to Skerries in North County Dublin, John Burrows and his Tyrone based Cookstown/BE Racing team were back in the Republic of Ireland for the annual Walderstown Road Races, which take place near Athlone in County Westmeath.

John didn't manage to add another win to his impressive CV, but a runner-up spot in the Supertwins race extended his lead in the Irish Supertwins Championship to 22 points. John, who rode the KBM Kawasaki 650, was disappointed and indeed surprised that he lost the race to leading Southern Ireland rider Andrew Farrell.

John said: "I followed Andrew for most of the race, all the time planning where to pass him on the last lap. I made a move to the front on the last lap and I felt I had the race in the bag. However, I underestimated the speed of Andrew's machine and he passed me on the run to the chequered flag."

John and his Cookstown/BE Suzuki GSXR 1000 had two outings. In the Irish Superbike Championship race he finished fourth and that result was repeated in the feature race of the day, the Race of the South.

John commented: "There was some confusion as to the starting procedure at the beginning of the Superbike race and William Dunlop and I both got left standing still. Having given most of the field a head start, I felt that fourth place was a decent salvage operation. William Dunlop only finished seventh.

"In the Race of the South I was after a top three finish. On the last lap I moved up to fourth when I passed Michael Pearson but I couldn't find a way past Derek Sheils and fourth proved to be my finishing position."

Michael Dunlop won both races.

In recent weeks, John's Supersport 600 Yamaha machine has been experiencing some minor electrical problems which have taken the edge of its performance. After finishing sixth in Walderstown's Supersport race, the team believe they have got to the root of the problem and John hopes to be at the sharp end of the Supersport competition in the year's remaining events.

Next up for the Cookstown/BE Racing squad is the Adelaide International Kells Road Races which take place on July 17th in County Meath. A big crowd is expected and with a large prize fund on offer the battles in every class will be fierce. Watch out for a report on Kells in the near future.
