UGP: All the action covered on BBC One NI

13 August 2012

The first of two one-hour highlights programmes reviewing Saturday's Ulster Grand Prix at Dundrod will be screened on BBC One NI tonight at 10.35pm.

The second programme will be broadcast on Tuesday evening, also at 10.35pm.

Tyco Suzuki's Guy Martin won a dramatic feature Ulster Grand Prix Superbike race after Michael Dunlop slid off at the hairpin, although Dunlop reversed the tables after a thrilling last-lap battle with the English star in the second Superbike race.

The Supersport events also produced some incredible action, with New Zealand's Bruce Anstey and William Dunlop locking horns in a fight to the flag, with each man picking up a victory apiece.

Northern Ireland's Ryan Farquhar continued his stunning form in the Supertwin class as he completed a clean sweep of wins in the 650cc category at the international road races this year with a commanding performance.

There was also more Superstock glory for Michael Dunlop, who took the honours in the class for the second year in succession ahead of veteran Ian Lougher.

The highlights programmes include some phenomenal footage from all the day's action captured around the famous 7.4-mile Dundrod circuit, with dramatic on-board and helicopter film showcasing the Ulster GP at its best.

BBC Northern Ireland is currently in the third year of a three-year broadcast deal with Ulster Grand Prix rights holders Greenlight TV.
