Kilham’s James Cowton remains in second place in the Duke Road Race Rankings after the latest rounds of the championship on the Isle of Man and in Ireland.

Ivan Lintin, current leader of this year’s Duke Rankings, achieved a double in the 650cc Supertwin race at the Southern 100 meeting, with Cowton and Jamie Coward second and third in both races.

Cowton was not involved in round 13, the Race of the South Road Races in Athlone in the Republic of Ireland, but he held on to second spot on 970 points, despite rival William Dunlop winning two races to climb to third in the standings.
