Darragh Murphy took two race wins in the second meeting of the New South Wales Road Racing Championships in Sydney over the weekend.
Murphy, the younger brother of Dunlop Irish Masters frontrunner, Andrew, was making a return to the sport following a shoulder injury earlier this year.
He contested the five races in the Clubsport 600cc class on his Honda CBR 600cc, taking two wins, two second places and a third-place over the course of the five-race meeting.
The event took place at Sydney Motorsport Park – formerly known as Eastern Creek Raceway – a one time home of the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
Murphy, a former Irish 125cc champion, has been living in Australia since February 2019 and has raced at the famous track on several occasions in that time.
Before his injury in February, his last outing at the Sydney track was in January when he finished second in the St George Motorcycle Club Summer Night’s meeting on the same CBR 600.
“This weekend was his first weekend since the injury and Saturday was all about getting back into it again,” his brother Andrew said. “He fitted a Dunlop tyre to the rear of the bike on Sunday morning and that changed the setup and that helped him to his two wins.”
