Davy Morgan and Keith Amor improve Duke Road Race Rankings standings

Road racers Davy Morgan and Keith Amor were the big movers in the Duke Road Race Rankings top 10 after the Armoy meeting, but Ryan Farquhar remains the man to beat.
With just eight rounds of the 2010 Duke Road Race Rankings left, Ryan Farquhar has tightened his grip on the lead, while Davy Morgan and Keith Amor have improved their places after the Armoy road races,

Scotmans Amor has moved up two, from eighth to sixth, and is now on 692 points. Morgan has entered the top 10 with a two place improvement from 12th. The only other changes in the top 10 saw John Burrows and Michael Pearson fall a place each, to seventh and eighth respectively.

However, there was no change in the top five. Dungannon's Farquhar took four more wins during the Armoy meeting to see his score improve to 3,182 points, well ahead of second place William Dunlop, who has 1,445 points. Michael Dunlop remains third, with Ian Hutchinson and Chris Palmer rounding out the top five.

At Armoy, the 16th round of the Duke Road Race Rankings, Farquhar took the chequered flag in the feature Race of Legends Grand Final by just 0.153 of a second from rival Amor, who had forced him into second place in the Supersport race by the slightly bigger margin of just 0.157s.

The KMR Kawasaki rider had earlier in the day shown his Scottish adversary the way home by 2.024 seconds in the first Superbike race, afterwards taking victories in the 650cc SuperTwins and 450 Moto Races.

William Dunlop achieved a double, taking the laurel wreaths in the 125cc and 250cc races, plus a third in the Supersport and two fifth places in the Superbikes races, resulting in the Ballymoney man receiving the Man of the Meeting Award by one point from Farquhar.

Dean Harrison again took the Junior and Senior Support Races, as he had done in the previous round at the Mid Antrim, and advances four places to 15th in the table.

The rankings series continues this week with racing at the Dundrod 150 and Ulster Grand Prix, and with all of the top 10 in action – including Hutchinson making his first appearance on the roads since his history-making Isle of Man TT success – there could be some major movement in the rankings.
