Ryan Farquhar is looking ahead to next weekend's Skerries meeting near Dublin after he notched his second successive five-timer in a week at the Bush road races.

Farquhar took his tally of wins so far this season to 26 as he dominated at his home event, winning the Superbike and Grand Final races plus the Supersport, Supertwin and Moto450 events.

The KMR Kawasaki rider also won five races a week previously at the Mid-Antrim 150, although key rivals William and Michael Dunlop were absent on both occasions.

"It's been another great day for me and the team and although conditions were again tricky, the club did a good job in getting every race run so to come away with five more wins is superb," Farquhar said.

"The weather was very up and down, a bit like last weekend's Mid-Antrim meeting and so I opted to ride my 600 in the two big bike races as it was a lot more manageable in the conditions.

"Everything went to plan except for the first Superbike where there was a bit of a hiccup with my pitboard," he explained.

"Going into the final lap, I was given a '+12' board so I backed right off and cruised round the first part of the lap.

"Needless to say, it was a huge shock when Derek [Sheils] came flying by. It was certainly a wake up call and so I tucked in behind him and got by as soon as I could.

"Luckily, there was enough of the lap to find a way by and I was able to take the win - it was a good last lap for the spectators but not for me.

"I'm looking forward to Skerries now and after that I'll be heading straight to the Southern 100."

Farquhar is in a rich vein of form at present following an impressive performance at the Isle of Man TT, where he won the inaugural Lightweight Supertwin race and finished on the podium in the Superstock and Supersport classes.

The Dunlop brothers have also entered at Skerries next weekend.
