Farquhar takes four wins at Faugheen

1 of 1

It seems like there’s no stopping Ryan Farquhar in the Irish national road races. For the third meeting in a row, the Dungannon man  racked up four wins in a day – this time at the Faugheen 50 Road Races.

The KMR Kawasaki rider was never headed throughout the day and took the chequered flag in the Open, Grand Final, Supersport 600cc and Super Twins races to make it 45 wins for the season.

Farquhar said: "It's been another grand weekend and everything's gone faultlessly again. Faugheen's quite a bumpy circuit, especially on the long downhill section, but the bikes are handling really well so they were able to cope with them without any problems and all of the races went to plan.

“I managed to get a good start in all of the races so got my head down and managed to open up a gap from where I could control things.
“Michael (Dunlop) was on my tail for the first part of the 600cc race so I upped the pace in the second half and was able to pull away but, apart from that, it all went smoothly."

"It's nice to have another clean sweep of the races but it's going to be difficult to keep it going until the end of the season. Still, 45 wins at this stage of the season is brilliant and I've managed to wrap up the Super Twins Championship so the next target is to try and clinch the others.

Farquhar’s next meeting is closer to home with the Mid Antrim '150' road races taking place this Saturday, August 1.
