Ulster Grand Prix: Dundrod 150 meeting cancelled due to bad weather

The four-race Dundrod 150 race meeting has been called off due to heavy rain
Thursday's planned Dundrod 150 meeting at the Ulster Grand Prix has been cancelled as a result of poor weather.

Heavy rain saw the four-race programme, including the day's feature Superbike race, abandoned on safety grounds.

Final Ulster GP practice took place earlier in the day, with Michael Dunlop taking pole position for Saturday's Superbike races on the Honda TT Legends Fireblade from Guy Martin.

Tyco Suzuki star Martin was fastest in the Supersport class, with Ivan Lintin leading the Lightweight Supertwin times and Ian Lougher topping the Ultra-Lightweight 125cc times.

A practice session for the Ulster Grand Prix Superstock race on Saturday did not take place, raising the possibility of a revised schedule on Saturday.

Just think what it costs most of the riders to race. The 'big' team riders probably have their espenses covered, but the privateer rider is paying £80 to £100 per bike in entry fees and that's before their other costs. The correct and only decision was to cancel yesterday's meeting.
