The 48-year-old was killed in a crash while competing in the Supertwins race, on one of Farquhar's KMR Kawasakis, at the Manx Grand Prix last week.

He was laid to rest following the service at Castlecaulfield Presbyterian Church, where his bikes were parked at the gates as the coffin was carried inside.

Trevor was a very committed rider who loved racing around the Mountain Course on the Isle of Man.

Farquhar has been left devastated by the loss of his uncle and has quit the sport for the sake of his family as a result.

"I've lost a lot of friends, but it's different when it comes to your own doorstep," he said.

On Wednesday, Trevor Ferguson's body was returned home from the Isle of Man - with a cavalcade of road racers, led by Farquhar, accompanying the hearse on its slow journey from the boat.

Tributes to the married father-of-three have flooded in from across the motorcycling fraternity.
