Congratulations go to Kilmarnock based Ayr Roads CC/Harry Fairbairn BMW rider Gary Maher, who has been crowned the Ayrshire and Dumfries road race champion for 2013.

Gary achieved consistently impressive results throughout the season and gained his second cat racing licence as a result, which is a fantastic achievement.

Gary has recently been aided by Sprockets Cycles in Kilmarnock and wishes to thank them for all of their support. Gary is pictured with the Ayrshire and Dumfries Trophy outside Sprockets.

Time trialling very much took centre stage this week among racers from Ayr Roads CC. 4 members were in action on a relatively sunny evening last Wednesday in the Robbie Robertson Memorial 10TT, which was held on the West Ferry course, Bishopton. Veteran Alex McAllister put in a stellar ride to record a personal best time of 22:13. Robert Kelly and Calum Hume also had excellent rides, clocking 23:07 and 23:26 respectively. Lynne Wardrop stopped the clock at 23:39, which was another superb ride and personal best time. Iain Grant of Dooley’s Cycles recorded the fastest time with an unbelievable 20:01.

Meanwhile, the club confined 10 TT undertaken on the Loans – Irvine – Loans course continued on Thursday evening with Mark Skilling quickest of the night in 22:21. Runner up was Kenny Armstrong in 22:35 with Alex McAllister third in 22:59. Other times: Robert Kelly 23:44, Toni McIntosh (F) 23:51, Jody Gerrard 24:01, Paul McGhee 24:24, Lynne Wardrop (F) 24:40, Colin Armstrong 26:57, John Mason (V) 27:29 and Duncan McArthur 27:57. Thanks go to Arnie Thompson for his time keeping duties throughout the season.
