North West 200: Farquhar expected to make full recovery

FOLLOWING the incident that happened in yesterday evening's North West 200 Supertwin race, it has been confirmed that Ryan Farquhar is now in a stable condition.

Farquhar was involved in an incident at Black Hill with Dan Cooper yesterday evening during the Supertwin race. The race was subsequently red-flagged and a decision was made to postpone the evening's proceedings until Saturday. 

Cooper was taken to Causeway Hospital in Coleraine with shoulder injuries and has since been discharged whilst Farquhar was airlifted to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast with chest and pelvic injuries where it was then stated that the Northern Irish rider was seriously ill in intensive care following surgery.

However, a further statement issued by the North West 200 organisers has stated that the 40-year-old had a successful operation and is now in a stable condition. Doctors are very happy with Farquhar's progress and are optimistic that he will make a full recovery. 

KMR Kawasaki, Farquhar's own team, were also running Jeremy McWilliams, Danny Webb and Darren James in the Supertwin class and the team have made a joint decision today that all three riders will be on the grid for Saturday’s four-lap race.
