A special day of celebration to mark the centenary of the Ulster Grand Prix motorcycle race will take place at the paddock area of the Dundrod circuit on Saturday, August 20.

Organised by the Ulster Grand Prix Supporters Club and the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club with the support of Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council, the event will run from 11am until 5pm with free admission.

Bruce Anstey, a 13 times winner at the Ulster, will be joined by BSB and road racing star, Glenn Irwin alongside a line-up of other road racers from past, not least, Ray McCullough BEM, the winner of the last 250cc World Championship race at Dundrod in 1971. There will also be a large collection of classic and racing machinery on display, including at least one machine from every decade of competition at the Ulster. 

Also on the day 100 riders will officially have the opportunity to take part in a special ride-out of the 7.4 mile Co. Antrim circuit to mark the occasion, which still retains the title as the World’s Fastest Road racing course.

With lots of family fun and entertainment in the paddock area throughout the day, Saturday August 20 promises to be a great day out for all the family, also an opportunity to reflect on the past and share stories of yester year with the motorbiking family as the grand old race celebrates its 100th birthday. 

If you wish to be one of the lucky 100 riders to take part in the ride out, please go to https://ulstergrandprix.net/shop/  to purchase your limited 1 of 100 entry pack.
