Yesterday, British rider Peter Hickman broke the world record for the fastest lap at the Ulster Grand Prix at Dundrod .
BMW rider Hickman dominated the opening Superbike race, surging past Dean Harrison on lap three before setting his record-breaking lap. He clocked a lap of record-breaking lap of 136.415mph which was the highlight of the opening night of racing at the Ulster Grand Prix and quite rightly reinstated the Ulster Grand Prix as the ‘World’s Fastest Road Race’. The race was red flagged at the end of Lap 4 but at that point Hickman had already extended his lead over his fellow riders, including previous record holder Dean Harrison by 5.81 seconds. He beat Harrison’s record by 1.8mph.
Hickman went onto win the Supersport class piping Northern Ireland rider Lee Johnston to the post, which gave him his seventh win at the Ulster GP. Both he and Johnston were neck and neck throughout the race until Hickman made a clever a move into Wheelers on the final lap to snatch the win from the Yamaha rider.
Michael Dunlop had been ruled out of racing yesterday when he aggravated a wrist injury during practice however he hopes to compete in tomorrow’s Superbike and Supersport races.
Belfast man, Paul Jordan won his first international road race win after coming out on top in a five-rider battle in the Supertwins. He beat Joe Loughlin at the end by just 0.092s.
