Another amazing performance put four more wins in the bag for Ryan Farquhar as his stunning season on the roads continued at the second Armoy meeting.

Bad weather saw Friday's practice almost completely wiped out, and continuing rain on Saturday meant riders had just a handful of untimed practice laps complete when racing got under way that afternoon. Fortunately, conditions improved for the races and the roads were dry.

KMR Kawasaki rider Farquhar's first race was the 6-lap 450cc race, which he comfortably won on his KX450 Kawasaki from Seamus Elliott.

The Dungannon man followed that up with a close fought second to Keith Amor in the Supersport 600cc race, the Scotsman just coming out on top on the last lap by 0.157 of a second.

The 34-year-old's third race of the day was the Open, and after grabbing the lead on the opening lap he was able to control affairs from the front of the field and got the better of Amor on this occasion by 2.024s.

The penultimate race was the Super Twins, which saw Farquhar get his third win, coming home over seven seconds clear of Michal Dokoupil.

That just left the Race of Legends Grand Final, where Farquhar again went head-to-head with Amor. The duo went at it hammer and tongs throughout, with Amor opening up a lead of four to five bike lengths on the last lap.

However, as the duelling duo approached the final corner two backmarkers had to be negotiated. Amor went on the outside and Farquhar dived up the inside. The Scot collided with one of the backmarkers and then he and Farquhar also had a coming together.

In the dash to the line, Farquhar got the verdict by 0.153s.

Farquhar said:

"It's been a really enjoyable day's racing and, after the problems with the rain on Friday, it was great to get the racing all run in decent, dry conditions whilst it was also really good to battling it out with Keith once more."

"In the first Superbike race, I got a good start and opened up a bit of a gap so from then on I was able to ride to my boards and control the gap. The Supersport was a lot tougher and although I led from the first lap again I just couldn't shake Keith off and he was right on my rear wheel throughout. I knew he was going to come by at some stage and he left it until the final lap, slipstreaming by me, to leave me in a close second."

"The 450cc and Super Twins races were fairly comfortable so that just left the Grand Final where I knew it would be between my and Keith once more."

"He led from the off this time, but on the last corner of the last lap we encountered some backmarkers and it all got a bit messy. It was no one's fault and just one of things, but I was able to get the power down first and pip him to the line to complete another good day."

"I'm really happy with my riding at the moment and it sets me up nicely for this week's Ulster GP. It's not going be easy though, especially as I won't have the use of a Superbike unfortunately, but I'll be giving it my all and just see where we end up on the day."

The Dundrod circuit hosts the Ulster Grand Prix Bikeweek, with the Dundrod 150 races taking place on Thursday August 12 and the Ulster GP races taking place on Saturday August 14.
