More points in road race rankings for Hutchy

Until the Ulster Grand Prix, Ian Hutchinson had not raced on the roads since winning all five solo races at the 2010 Isle of Man TT. However, the Bingley star showed he hadn't lost any of his form, with three wins and a massive haul of points in the Duke Road Race Rankings.
Ian Hutchinson collected another 390 points in the 2010 Duke Road Race Rankings thanks to his stunning performance at the Ulster Grand Prix Bikeweek – his first road racing outing since dominating the Isle of Man TT in June.

The Padgetts Honda rider, who turned 31 during the week, took three wins in Saturday's Ulster Grand Prix. He scored victories on Superstock, Supersport and Superbike machinery, and only missed out on a fourth by half a second. He also took a close second to Keith Amor in the two-part second Supersport race.

Hutchy, who has maintained his fourth place in the Duke Road Race Rankings table since the TT, picked up another 390 point to close on third-place Michael Dunlop, but was not able to improve his overall standing.

Scot Amor, who also enjoyed a hugely successful week at the Dundrod circuit, moved up to fifth and scored an extra 398 points thanks to his performances in the Dundrod 150 and Ulster GP races.

Second place William Dunlop added another 195 points, while brother Michael retained third with another 219 points scored during the Ulster GP Bikeweek.

At the top of the table, Ryan Farquhar remains in control despite what proved a disappointing Dundrod outing. Mechanical and performance problems left Farquhar's challenge dented, although he did enjoy huge success in the Supertwins class. The week netted him another 232 points as he continues his march towards a fifth Duke Road Race Rankings win.

The biggest mover was veteran Ian Lougher, who moved up five places to ninth courtesy of victory in the Ulster GP 250cc race, when the three-time
Rankings winner headed William Dunlop and Paul Robinson to score his 15th Ulster GP win.

There are just five more rounds scheduled, starting with the Manx Grand Prix, which gets under way in the Isle of Man tomorrow.
