Melville MC: Dominant Munro scoops all four Scottish 600 titles

In Melville, News, Scottish Championship

SAM Munro completed a clean sweep of Scotland’s Formula 600 championships this weekend with a Melville full house and the Scottish crown.

Just a few weeks on from wrapping up the Knockhill F600 title a round early, the Aberdeen rider scored his second, third and fourth titles of the season at East Fortune with Melville’s Open and Club accolades along with the national trophy.

After blitzing qualifying on Saturday to lead Kenneth Thirlwall and James McLaren by over a second, Munro shot off the grid from pole position and was never headed, leaving Thirlwall and Andy Lock to a lone second and third.

It was more of the same for Munro in race two with a five-second win over Thirlwall, who conquered an early dice with McLaren to come home 0.7sec clear of the youngster.

Sunday’s scraps brought two more victories for Munro as Thirlwall took second ahead of Jon Dickie in race three before McLaren battled ahead of Thirlwall to take second in the final.

With the Scottish, Melville Club and Melville Open titles all sewn up, Munro hit the grid for the blue riband Steve Hislop Memorial Trophy race, slipping behind Superbike champ Greg Gilfillan while eventual leader Paul McClung powered to the win.

But the British Supersport rider took a clear third overall and first 600 by almost nine seconds to top off his title-winning weekend.
