High five for McGlinchey at Mondello thumbnailEunan McGlinchey (No. 221), seen here in action earlier this month at Bishopscourt, stretched his winning run at Mondello over the weekend.

AGHADOWEY'S Eunan McGlinchey was again in impressive form at the Irish Masters Championship at Mondello Park last weekend.
McGlinchey scored three wins in the Production Twin Class on the way to improving his lap time around the track to 57.3 seconds.
He also won in the Cup Class and took the chequered flag in the Supersport Cup on the final 600 race of the two-day competition.
“It was another great weekend," reflected McGlinchey. "In Saturday's 600 Supersport class I struggled to get my suspension set up.
“I made a few adjustments for Sunday's racing - but it still isn't the way I want it. All-in-all I can't complain with five wins," he added. At the same meeting, Richie Ryan extended his Masters Superbike Championship lead as the 2017 series passed the half-way point.
Saturday's race one was a straight-forward win for Ryan at the controls of his Mobil1 Yamaha R1, with the ever improving BMW of Luke Johnstone best of the rest. Peter Moloney took third with his BMW bike having battled past the Yamaha R1 of Charles Stuart.
Ryan again led in Sunday's first race but by the end of the second lap a resurgent Brian McCormack had emerged from the pack and was beginning to close the gap to the leader. The leading pair traded fastest times for the remainder of the race and with two laps to go McCormack took his BMW into the lead for the first time. McCormack's glory was to be short-lived, however, as disaster struck on the final lap. A big off on the fast entrance to turn three robbed him of a second victory and left Ryan to take a comfortable win.
