Ryan Farquhar takes home Ken Wootton Trophy

Ryan Farquhar has been victorious in winning the Ken Wootton Trophy in the International Challenge at Phillip Island.

Riding a 1984 Yamaha Harris F1, Farquhar’s consistent finishing saw him end up two points clear of team-mate Conor Cummins at the top of the standings.

Points were awarded to the top five finishers from each team in each race.

Team UK were victorious in the teams trophy, beating Australia by 42 points and they finished strongly at the top of the individual standings. The final top three were Farquhar (141 points), International Challenge debutante Cummins in second with 139 points, and 2014 joint winner Jeremy McWilliams third with 138 points. Consistent Kiwi finisher Damien Kavney was fourth (122 points), Shawn Giles (Australia) fifth with 119 points and Jed Metcher (Australia) sixth on 116 points. Fellow Australians Paul Young and Laurie Fyffe ended up seventh and eighth with 114 points. Cameron Donald was ninth (112 points) while Brendan Roberts – also Australian – finished in tenth.
