TWO promising riders from the region recently wrapped up the North Armagh Junior Quad Club campaign with silverware success.
James Stewart topped the standings across the 50cc Club Championship section to celebrate a first competitive year on the North Armagh books in memorable fashion.
Josh Wilson finished third in the same class but had silver at Ulster Championship level as his highlight.
“Once James started to show an interest in the quad bikes we looked around for a club and joined North Armagh,” said Barry Stewart, the father of the Seagoe Primary School pupil. “He had a few first-place results in the Club Championships over the nine rounds.
“We are all delighted and, in the end, James won the championship by a single point.
“When the season opens again in March he will move up to the 80cc class.”
Mullavilly Primary School’s Wilson registered top-three placings in the Ulster and Club championships.
“Everyone in the family is very proud of Josh,” said Gail Wilson, the young rider’s mother. “His father Ryan, sister Megan and myself are delighted with Josh’s progress as this is only his second year with North Armagh.
“His grandfather, Colin, has been involved in motorsport for years and helped Josh work on the quad bike so also deserves a special mention.”
