MCE Insurance Ulster Grand Prix: Hicky Continues Dundrod Domination With Record Breaking Superstock Success

After a delay, to allow damp patches around Dundrod to dry, following early morning rain, a record breaking Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council Superstock race, made the wait for competition to begin, more than worth it.

Continuing his Dundrod domination, Peter Hickman sealed a fourth international road race victory on S1000RR BMW machinery, plus Smiths Racing’s first success at the world’s fastest road race.

Along the way setting a new outright Superstock lap record of 132.77 mph, he was never headed in the six lap race, finishing at the completion of lap 6, 4.674 seconds clear of Silicone Engineering Racing’s Dean Harrison.

The Bradford based racer edged out Manxman Dan Kneen for second, with just 0.044 of a second, covering them.

Fleetwood Grab Services backed David Johnson finished a superb fourth, whilst Padgetts Conor Cummins lead the meagre Honda challenge in fifth place.

Radcliffe’s Racing’s Jamie Coward finished a solid sixth, in front of 15 times TT winner Michael Dunlop, with the remaining spots within the top ten claimed by Ivan Lintin, Dan Cooper and Daley Mathison.

There was also notable rides as well from Brian McCormack 11th, Alistair Kirk 12th, David “Action” Jackson 19th, Frank Gallagher 20th and Michael Booth a very respectable 24th.
