The World’s Fastest Road Race The Ulster GP Officially Called Off

Confirming what loads of road racing aficionados, fans, teams, racers anticipated, Ulster Grand Prix organisers the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club have confirmed this morning that the world’s fastest road race won’t be taking place in 2020.

In a short candid statement released today, the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club stated:

“It is with great regret the organisers of the Ulster Grand Prix, the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club, must announce the race will not take place in 2020.

Despite numerous meetings in recent months with councillors, MLAs, MPs and Ministers and other interested parties, we have been unable to find the necessary financial support to run the meeting this year.

The unprecedented crisis surrounding the Coronavirus epidemic has made finding a solution at this stage impossible.”

Hopefully their is a bright future on the horizon for one of pure road racing’s true jewels in the crown, the Ulster GP.

Clearly lots of problems need solving but a great product is there, one that is proven and one that captures the attention of two wheel racing, motorsport fans worldwide.
