News Archives | WSB Results | Supermoto Results | British Superbike Results | MotoGP Results |

    The dates for the 2005 Duke Road Race Rankings Series have been confirmed, with a total of twenty-two rounds, commencing at the Cookstown '100' Road Races on 30th April and concluding at the Gold Cup Meeting at Oliver's Mount on 17th/18th September.

    2003 winner Ryan Farquhar, who successfully retained his title last year, will be out to defend his title on his new sponsors MSS Kawasaki machines, whilst no doubt the inaugural winner Ian Lougher will be aiming to regain the title from his arch-rival, having finished third in 2004.

    2005 will be the fourth year of The Duke Road Race Rankings the adjudication panel has decided to keep the format similar to the previous years, with a number of the rounds having their weightings upgraded.

    Grading scores are weighted to take into account of the prominence of the meeting, breadth of opposition and circuit length. Thus, a result in the North West '200' would score higher than a similar placing at, for instance, Cookstown. Rankings will be revised after each event.

    The rankings include the performances of riders in all classes: Superbike, Supersport (600cc), 250/400cc, 125cc and the Superstock (Production - where held), plus the Feature Race at each event and the opening Support Races in Ireland.
