Ulster Grand Prix bosses eyeing 2022 return

In News, Roads, Ulster Grand Prix

DUNDROD and District Motorcycle Club officials say they are still committed to reviving the Ulster Grand Prix as they target a return next season.

Organisers of the UGP, the club has been working behind the scenes through the pandemic in a bid to get the meeting back up and running in time for its 100th running next year.

And while all may have seemed quiet, DDMC chiefs say they’ve been cracking on feverishly.

A statement from the club reads:

Since the flag dropped on the last running of the Ulster Grand Prix race in August 2019, the organisers of the event, the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club, have been working to resolve the financial difficulties suffered during that season.

The effect of Coronavirus and the restrictions aimed at controlling the pandemic have hindered the process but significant progress has now been made with the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club Limited entering a Company Voluntary Arrangement with its creditors.

The Club would like to thank everyone involved for their understanding of the circumstances that led to the event’s unprecedented financial difficulties and their co-operation in helping resolve this difficult situation.

The financial problems, plus the effects of Coronavirus, meant the race did not take place in 2020 and the event will not happen during this year either.

Despite these setbacks, the Dundrod club remains committed to resurrecting the event. Conversations have already taken place with public and commercial groups who share a similar aim and more discussions are planned.

This work will continue throughout the coming months in the hope of celebrating the centenary of the world‘s fastest road race with a return to action at Dundrod in 2022.
