Showing his all-round ability in all conditions and not just the warm and dry of Spain, Tarres took the win in the wet and mud at a very traditional event at Newtownards. It was not an easy victory as both Saunders and Eddy Lejeune on the four-stroke RTL Honda pushed him all the way. The Championship was still wide open after the opening four rounds.
RESULTS: 1: Tarres 74; 2: Saunders 76; 3: Lejeune 77; 4: Bosis 97; 5: Michaud 97.
ENTRY: 66 Riders.
