Ryan Farquhar claims sixth Duke road racing title

Farquhar won 43 races this season

Ryan Farquhar says he is 'made up' to win his sixth Duke Road Race Rankings Series after another superb season on his KMR Kawasaki machines.

The Dungannon racer claimed 43 victories and 11 podium finishes on his way to a winning points tally of 3,754.

Farquhar, 34, said: "It's my fourth in a row and I am made up to win it again. It's been another grand season."

William Dunlop claimed second place ahead of brother Michael, who won a second TT title in 2011.

Farquhar set 27 fastest laps during the 23-round series but said he was disappointed at not claiming more wins at the International road races.

"The national races went great but we had a few problems at the internationals this year for a few different reasons and I will be looking to put that straight next season," he added.

Farquhar won at both the Manx Grand Prix and Southern 100 meetings on the Isle of Man this year.

Ian Lougher, who was the inaugural winner in 2002 and took the titles again in 2005 and 2006, finished in fourth place.

John Burrows slotted into fifth place, a climb of three places on the previous year, whilst Castletown's Chris Palmer took sixth ahead of Guy Martin, Cameron Donald and Davy Morgan.
