Bardney motorbike star Ivan Lintin heads to Cadwell Park this weekend after enjoying an excellent set of results at the Ulster Grand Prix - for the second year in succession.

The pick of his performances saw Lintin claim his second International race win in Saturday’s Supertwins race.

That victory came in tricky of conditions on as rain, strong winds and cool temperatures made life very difficult.

However, Lintin put in an imperious performance on the McKinstry Racing Kawasaki and with an eight second lead after two laps, he was able to control the race for the remaining three laps.

His eventual winning margin was a commanding 14.3s whilst, unsurprisingly, he also set the fastest lap of the race.

Earlier in the day, he had been out in force on the 1,000cc and 600cc Taylor Lindsey Racing Hondas and, after taking a solid ninth in the Superstock race, he had, arguably, one of his best ever International races.

He produced a brilliant ride to finish fourth in the Supersport race, moving through the pack well after completing the opening lap in ninth place.

He then switched back to the Superstock machine for the feature Superbike race where he again impressed with seventh place.

Lintin now heads to Cadwell Park for his debut in the British Championship, riding the Taylor Lindsey Racing Honda in the National Superstock 1,000cc race.
