North West 200: Ivan Lintin declared winner of halted Supertwin race

KMR Kawasaki will compete in Saturday's Supertwin race at the North West 200 despite the serious crash involving team owner Ryan Farquhar.

Dungannon man Farquhar remains in a serious condition after undergoing surgery following the crash in Thursday's opening Supertwin race.

KMR Kawasaki are also running Jeremy McWilliams, Danny Webb and Darren James in the class.

A statement said that the team had decided to "compete as scheduled".

Ivan Lintin was declared the winner of Thursday's race ahead of James Hillier and McWilliams after the race was halted following the crash involving then leader Farquhar and Dan Cooper on the third lap.

Lintin was leading the race after the second lap.

Farquhar, 40, suffered chest and pelvic injuries while Cooper was taken to the Causeway Hospital in Coleraine with shoulder injuries but was later discharged.

The crash, which happened at the Black Hill section of the course near Portrush, led to racing being abandoned for the night.

Farquhar was airlifted by police helicopter from the track after the accident and was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.
