Packed programme of family fun and entertainment to take place from the 3rd-8th August
Fans of the Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix can look forward to the biggest ever Bike Week at Dundrod this August, with more events and entertainment than ever before.
The Dundrod & District Motorcycle Club has been working hard behind the scenes to improve Bike Week ahead of the 2015 races, creating a packed programme of events that has something for all ages.
From quizzes and classic bike displays to stunt shows and live music,
there will be no shortage of action on or off the track, and the legendary Ulster Grand Prix atmosphere and ‘craic’ is not to be missed.
Noel Johnston, Clerk of the Course at the Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix said: “We are constantly working to improve the fan experience at Dundrod and a big part of that lies in what we can offer fans when the racing stops.
“We believe that this year we really do have the biggest and best Bike Week we’ve ever had, and with the improvements to camping facilities and bigger grandstands around the circuit it’s shaping up to be another great year.
“Plus as always, we’ll have a host of top racing talent on the grid ready to do battle at the World’s Fastest Road Race.”
Bike Week at the Metzeler Ulster grand Prix runs from the 3rd – 8th August 2015 and fans can purchase wristbands now on www.ulstergrandprix.net
Fans will also be able to buy a radio ear piece for £5 from the Ulster Grand Prix Supporters Club in the paddock. This will allow listeners to pick up BBC Radio Ulster and UGP Radio around the circuit.
