The Adelaide Masters Series continues to develop as the top Irish Short Circuit Racing championship with the backing of Motorcycle Insurance Specialists, Adelaide Insurance Services.

Derek Sheils leads the way in Superbike ahead of Mark Glasgow with Jonny Buckley and Damien Byrne tied for third place. Just one point further back and a man to watch this weekend is Marshall Neill on the Wilson Craig Honda. Joining the established stars for the second event of the year will be two of Ireland's top British Superstock competitors Cody Nally and Lee Johnston and they are certain to get in amongst the championship front runners as will David Haire who makes his first 2013 appearance following an early season injury.

The Supersport class is even more competitive than the Superbike with more than a dozen riders on the grid capable of winning. Leading the way here is Richie Ryan who took two wins at the opening event. Second in the standings is the other 2013 race winner, Marshall Neill and he is followed by a trio of young guns, pre-season favourite Carl Phillips, the ever improving Jamie Patterson and last years Cup champion Luke Johnston. These five are joined by the likes of David Haire, Jason Lynn, Dean McMaster, James Kelly and Conor Parkhill.
