Michael and William Dunlop

Michael and William Dunlop starred at Saturday's sundrenched Armoy meeting, with both riders winning two races.

Michael won the two Superbike events, taking the feature race, after earlier setting a new course lap record of 106.81mph in winning the Open race.

The younger Dunlop brother was second in the Supersport 600cc behind older brother William, who also won the 250.

Jamie Hamilton pipped debutant Jeremy McWilliams in the Supertwins and Christian Elkin won the 125cc race.

Elkin was riding a Moto3 machine round the three-mile circuit.

Englishman Guy Martin led the Open race for the first two laps but had to settle for second behind Ballymoney rider Michael Dunlop.

Michael, who clinched a treble at Armoy last year, came in ahead of brother William in the feature Race of Legends event with Derek Sheils completing the podium.

Martin was also an early leader in the Supersport 600 but was passed by the Dunlops with William securing victory by a margin of 0.6 seconds over his brother, who set a new lap record at 103.19mph.

Hamilton edged out KMR Kawasaki team-mate McWilliams by eight hundredths of a second in the Supertwins.

Former Grand Prix rider McWilliams was making his national road race debut at the County Antrim course and established a new lap record for the class at 97.07mph.

Elkin, a former British 125 champion, won the class with Sam Dunlop second and Sam Wilson third.

Conor Behan won the Senior Support race from Mark Hanna and Shane Egan, with Hanna taking the Junior Support honours ahead of Behan and Egan.
