Championship


Records tumble at MCE Insurance Ulster Grand Prix
Fantastic event, records broken and some of the best racing you'll ever see.  Despite serious difficulties and sad circumstances during practice and the Dundrod 150 event earlier in the week, the 2017 UGP has concluded brilliantly; a real credit to Clerk of the Course Noel Johnston and everyone associated with the Dundrod Club.
Peter Hickman scored a treble winning the Superstock race and the two Supersport events. Bruce Anstey took a hard-fought win in the opening Superbike race which also included a new lap record set by Dean Harrison - now standing at an amazing 134.614mph!
Local aces, Paul Robinson and Davy Morgan won the Lightweight and ultra-lightweigh classes. Ivan Linton took the Supertwins win and also broke its lap record. Anstey and Hickman were retirements in the final Superbike event which then led to a thrilling end to the event and last lap battle between Dan Kneen and Dean Harrison - Harrison got the win with just 0.106 of a second to spare!  

Peter Hickman was awarded the Man of the Meeting - Club event summary here

Heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Jamie Hodson and Gavin Lupton from everyone within the MCUI.

Great racing at Tandragee but unfortunately poor weather and a serious crash near Bells Crossroads on the last lap of the Senior Support Race involving Italian rider Dario Cecconi marked an early early end to what was a fantastic race programme.
