Ulster Grand Prix officially axed

In News, Roads, Ulster Grand Prix

THE 2020 Ulster Grand Prix has finally been called off after months of deliberation amid financial issues and the current coronavirus pandemic.

Back in November, it was announced that UGP organisers were fighting to save this year’s event in the wake of a number of issues, including the hunt for monetary support.

A statement from DDMC chiefs today reads:

It is with great regret the organisers of the Ulster Grand Prix, the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club, must announce the race will not take place in 2020.

Despite numerous meetings in recent months with councillors, MLAs, MPs and Ministers and other interested parties, we have been unable to find the necessary financial support to run the meeting this year.

The unprecedented crisis surrounding the Coronavirus epidemic has made finding a solution at this stage impossible.
