Chris McGlinchey from Chain Reaction won the Madigan GP yesterday. 


BRC riders were also in action, with Dale Bonnar claiming a very creditable 3rd place in the A3 category, on a very demanding course. Laura Campbell also claimed 4th place in the ladies event, her first competitive action following her return from honeymoon.


However Tommy Wilson stole the headlines for BRC with a brilliant solo win in the Masters race, with team mate Jim McConnell coming home in 3rd!
