After some brief respite following a manic few days at the Southern 100, it was back to work for Manchester racer Adrian Kershaw who headed for Angelsey with the Wirral 100 club for their penultimate meeting of the year supported by D&H Motorcycles of Stockport.
Engine problems saw his now aging ZXR400 retire from around the famous Billown Circuit, and since then Adrian has been working hard to get ready for the All Comers 100 – 500cc championship and the success of those repairs would be put to the test around the Welsh seaside track.
Things started well for Kershaw as he put the ZXR400 on the front row of the grid, also qualifying well for the Formula 600 race on his ZX-6R.
So far this year Adrian has won 7 of the 8 All Comers contests, losing out to the ultra-competitive Chris Moore at Oulton Park by just 0.169s back in April.
The latest Angelsey meeting saw the Kawasaki rider put in a dominant display to keep Paul Metcalfe and Keith Jackson at bay to claim another four wins and wrap up the All Comers 100 – 500cc championship with one more round still to go.
Sadly the Formula 600 race didn’t quite go to plan for Adrian, who after taking 5th in the opener saw his title hopes slip away as he crashed out of contention. Despite starting from the back of the grid on the Sunday, Kershaw put his ContiRaceAttack Comp tyres to the test as he set about making up a lot of places on the packed circuit to take 9th and then 4th in the final race of the day.
Congratulations on your well deserved title Adrian!
