Duke Road race Rankings Round 12

However, it was the 'Welsh Wizard' Ian Lougher who was
'Master of the Mount'
Northern Ireland's Michael Pearson became only the second Ulsterman to claim the coveted Cock o'the North Trophy at the Oliver's Mount venue, round 12 of the Duke Rankings Series.

Michael also took the victors laurel wreaths in both legs of the Superbike races and two second places in the 600cc Supersport events.

However, it was the 'Welsh Wizard' Ian Lougher who was
'Master of the Mount' over the weekend claiming his 124th
main race victory as he achieved doubles in three classes, Supersport 600cc; Lightweight 250cc and Ultra-Lightweight 125cc classes.

His six wins over the two-day meeting elevates him to third place in the Duke Rankings, up six places from ninth.

Highest mover is Michael Pearson climbing 16 positions
from 23rd to seventh.

Daniel Frear who was the initial Rankings leader after the opening round at the North Yorkshire course moved into 11th position an advance of 15 places.

Kiaran Hankin, David Guiney, Mark Buckley and Billy Byrne all re-enter the top 50.

With the loss of the Walderstown Road Races due to tragic
circumstances, the attention now focuses on the Steam Packet Southern '100' International Road Races, followed at the weekend by both Jurby South Road Races, also on the Isle of Man and the Kells International Road Races in County Meath, Southern Ireland.
