As stated in a previous article, there is light at the end of the tunnel for the worldwide popular Ulster Grand Prix.
New meeting organisers the Revival Racing Motorcycle Club, issued today the following statement regarding the world’s fastest road race forthcoming future.
“The world’s fastest motorcycle road race, the Ulster Grand Prix, will return this summer after a two year absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The event will be promoted by the Revival Racing Motorcycle club and will be staged on August 16-20 at the Dundrod circuit.
We understand the unique appeal of the UGP to riders and fans alike, and we are delighted to bring racing back to this famous track.
It’s been a very uncertain time for the sport because of Coronavirus and we can’t wait to hear bikes roaring down the Flying Kilo again this summer.
We are indebted to the volunteers at the Ulster Grand Prix for their collaboration and continuing hard work to stage this famous race in its centenary year.
More details of the week-long race programme will be announced soon.”
First ran in 1922, the Ulster GP celebrates this year it’s 100th anniversary and I’m sure pure road racers across all backgrounds will be keen to compete at what’s set to be one of the most eagerly awaited roads events of 2022.
