Moira rider Ian Lowry fell back to fifth in the British Superbike series on a disappointing day for the Northern Ireland riders at Oulton Park.

Lowry led the championship after two rounds but could only manage 13th and 21st place finishes on Monday.

Alastair Seeley took sixth and 11th positions to lie sixth overall while Michael Laverty was seventh and 12th and he is 11th in the standings.

William Dunlop finished third in the MotoStar race on his 125cc Honda.

Ballymoney rider Dunlop is now third in that championship.

Dubliner Jack Kennedy won one of the Supersport races and was third in the other on his Mar-Train Racing Yamaha.

Glenn Irwin was 10th in both events.

In Sunday's British Superbike race, Seeley had achieved a creditable fourth place finish, with Laverty sixth.

Tommy Hill, Chris Walker and Shane Byrne helped themselves to victories in the showpiece Superbike races over the weekend.

Hill leads the championship by six points from Tyco TAS Suzuki ace Josh Brookes, with Byrne third.

Keith Farmer continues to lead the Superstock 1000 category despite failing to add to his points tally in round three.
