The 2019 AJ Plumbing Ulster SKB started on the March 30th with Round One of the championship, held at Bishopscourt, and on that occasion Tweed failed to finish in Race 1 and came 4th in Race 2 of the Production Twin.

Today’s wins will be a welcomed improvement from Round One for young Tween as he hopes for more of the same in the 10 round championship, which continues over the Easter holidays, with the 3rd round on Easter Monday at Kirkistown.

The ten round USBK championship will then continue with two rounds in both June & Septemper and one round in July & August, finishing on the 5th October at St Angelo with the Final Round hosted by the Enniskillen Club.

Darryl Tween will also be taking part on the Road Racing circuits with his two local road races on the horizon, the Armoy Road race in July and in a couple of week’s time the International North West 200.
