Ulster GP set to return as Whyte and McCallen take charge

In News, Roads, Ulster Grand Prix

ULSTER Grand Prix fans can rejoice as the event finally looks poised to return this season with a new management crew at the helm.

North West 200 supremo Mervyn White and former road racing star Philip McCallen are leading the charge to revive the event as they propose dates for 2022.

The Ulster, which fell into financial difficulties – amassing debts rumoured to be in the region of £300,000 – was last run in 2019, but a new aptly-named Revival Club is set to throw the meeting a lifeline.

With backing from the Northern Ireland Executive, a rescue package worth some £2million is to be used to help both finance and help recover the event – as well as the North West, which is also set to be run by the new club.

The proposed dates for the 2022 Ulster Grand Prix, which will mark its centenary year, are August 16-20.

But after a two-year absence of its own, the North West is set to be back on the calendar to open the international road racing season in its usual slot – from May 10-14.
