Poor weather forced the cancellation of the Isle of Man Senior TT for the first time in the history of the event, but the Lightweight Super Twins race did go ahead.
It ended in a win for Farquhar who overcame an early challenge from English rider James Hillier.
The race favourite took the win by 28.99s ahead of Hillier, with Michael Rutter completing the podium in third.
William Dunlop was sixth while the best newcomer was Ballyclare's Jamie Hamilton who finished 10th on a machine provided by Farquhar.
