Oliver's Mount success for Farquhar

Ryan Farquhar warms up for the blue riband road races by claiming a dominant victory in the Ian Watson Trophy at Oliver's Mount.
Ryan Farquhar got the 2011 road racing season underway in spectacular fashion with a dominant fourth consecutive win in the Ian Watson Trophy races at Oliver's Mount, Scarborough.

The KMR Kawasaki rider romped to all seven race wins for the ideal build up to his forthcoming assault on the North West 200 and the Isle of Man TT.

Bringing his total tally of wins at Oliver's Mount to an astonishing 74, Farquhar was delighted with his success, which was partly achieved on the new ZX-10R.

“It's been a really good day although I'm absolutely shattered now! With it being the first race of the season, it takes a while for the muscles to get working again whilst my races were all back to back today and I was jumping off one bike straight on to another!

“It's been a very worthwhile meeting today and I've certainly learned a lot with the new ZX-10R. It was a bit lively over the bumps and crests around the course so we've got a bit of work to do with set-up but we were making changes all day and have found a good direction to work in so I'm confident we'll get there.”

“I was really happy with how the 600 was working and the improvements that we've made to the bike over the winter appear to have moved us forward so that was very positive although the ultimate test will, of course, come at the likes of the North West 200 and TT.

“The Super Twin was also working well although I've a few changes that I want to make before the Cookstown 100. You can't expect everything to be 100 per cent right at the very first race but that's why they're invaluable as we now know what areas we need to work on and improve in time for the next race. It's been hard work today with the warm weather but 7 wins from 7 starts is the perfect start to the season and I'm really happy with how it's all gone.”

Farquhar was awesome on Sunday! I'm not sure what 'bumps' he's on about, the bike looked super smooth at all points of the circuit! Looking forward to the rest of the road racing season. It's shaping up to be an epic one!
