A NEW lap record capped an impressive weekend of racing at East Fortune Race Circuit this weekend.

The new lap record, in the Lightweights' class, was broken by Haddington ace Paul McClung, who broke his own previous best with a time of 1:01.822 as he won all four of his races at the county circuit.

McClung ended the weekend on top of the standings in both the Scottish Lightweights and the Melville Championship, having taken maximum points in both.

Meanwhile, John Dean of Hawick picked up four wins to hold on to top spot in the Scottish Superbike Championship, 69 points ahead of Andrew Tasker, who is likely to be out for the rest of the season.

A large grid of sidecars also provided entertainment, with 10-times Isle of Man TT winner Rob Fisher and passenger Rick Long among those to travel.

Michael Hoskisson and passenger Scott Hardie qualified on pole and won the first two races, while Phil Bell and Ross Jackman won both Sunday races.

Torquil Paterson (Perth) put in some good performances to win two of four races, while taking fourth place in another, despite qualifying in fifth on his Superstock 600 bike,.

He and Ewan Gray, who won both Sunday races, were involved in a hard fought battle during Sunday's last race, swapping the lead several times until Paterson took a tumble during the eighth lap, which saw the race red-flagged, with Gray declared the winner and Callum Grigor the runner-up.

Gray leads the Championship on 200 points, with Paterson in second, 40 points behind.

Race winners in different classes included Duncan Baillie, Andy Dunnet, Rishon Hickey and Jodie Chalk.

The next meeting at East Fortune will be the weekend of September 17/18 when the prestigious Steve Hislop Memorial Trophy race will take place.
