Doagh rider Martin Barr was back on the podium again at the weekend - this time in the Pirelli Masters at Foxhill.

Riding the 2016 KTM for the first time, he was pleased with his day’s work, finishing third in race one and second in race two.

“I qualified in third and in race one made a decent start and finished third. In my second race I made into third before passing Elliot Banks Brown for second that gave me second overall,” said Barr.

“I was really pleased with the new KTM as it was the first time I have ridden it competitively. Another podium is good for Team BRT/KTM leading into next weekend’s MX Nationals at Hawkestone Park.”

Meanwhile, East Antrim’s Scott Swann is second in the 125 Ulster and Irish 125 production championships after taking three third places at the Mondello Park Irish Championship meeting last weekend.
