Neill sets sights on trophy hat-trick

By Roy Harris

The Adelaide Masters series will set the Bishopscourt Circuit alight this afternoon, with rounds seven and eight set to be hotly contested. The feature race will see the fastest 36 riders on the day battle for the Norman Brown Trophy and the £600 that goes with it.

Portadown's Marshall Neill has won the non-championship Norman Brown Trophy for the past two seasons and will start as favourite to land the prestigious trophy for the third time.

Riding the Ryan McGill Joinery ZX-10 Kawasaki, Neill contested the four opening rounds of the British Superstock championship this season, but returns to home action on one of his favourite tracks.

Neill said: "I have had some good results at Bishopscourt and have been fortunate to win the Norman Brown twice, but it is never easy at the Adelaide Masters meetings as competition is high."

In the Adelaide Supersport series, Lisburn's Carl Phillips currently has a 20-point lead over David Haire while Robert English, Jason Lynn, Jamie Patterson, Robert Kennedy and Conor Parkhill should be in contention.

Racing is scheduled to get under way at approximately 12 noon.

There is off-road action scheduled for today at Bells Hill, Crossgar, where the Billy Hutton Memorial motocross is set to commence at 11am.
