Jamie Hamilton recorded two wins at the Easter Monday Irish Superbike meeting at Kirkistown for his B.E Racing squad, with victories in the Superbike and Supertwins classes.

The Ballyclare lad said of his success: "It was great to get my first ever win in a Superbike race at a short circuit event, so full credit to John Burrows and the whole team for a big effort."

Hamilton's main adversary in the Superbike class was Dubliner Derek Sheils on the BikeBitsNI Kawasaki, who took the Mayor's Trophy for success in the second outing, but crashed out in the opener to hand victory to young Hamilton.

Crumlin's Stephen Thompson took second place in the opening Superbike race aboard the BMW with former Supersport champion Alistair Kirk third on the Curry Motorsport Kawasaki.

Hamilton was runner up in the second Superbike race with Alistair Kirk third.

The B.E Racing pilot also took a win in the Supertwins class, with Christian Elkin - who won the second race - keeping him honest throughout.

Robert English was the Supersport race one winner after Ballymoney's William Dunlop crashed out on the CD Racing/ Curran Racing Yamaha, before redeeming himself with a race two win.

English hard charged throughout the second race to finish in Dunlop's slipstream.
