2015 Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix dates confirmed

The dates for the 2015 Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix have been confirmed, subject to formal agreement by the Motor Cycle Union of Ireland (MCUI)
Next year's Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix will take place on Saturday, August 8.

The Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club has confirmed that Bike Week will commence on Monday, August 3 with practice and the Dundrod 150 races taking place on Wednesday, August 5 and Thursday, August 6.

Clerk of the course, Noel Johnston, said: “There will a lot of riders hoping to claim the title of the world's fastest road racer in 2015, I certainly didn't expect Bruce Anstey's record to last this long.

“It's great to be able to confirm the dates for next year's racing. We've already had a lot of enquiries about the 2015 races and this early announcement will ensure that fans and competitors can start planning ahead.

“We've moved racing forward to accommodate the Manx Grand Prix which will make it easier for even more riders to come and compete. By the time Bike Week comes around you can be sure that we will once again have a world class line up of road racers on the grid.”

Bruce Anstey triumphed in the feature Superbike race in August on the Padgett's Honda and completed a double with victory in the Supersport class.

The 2015 dates are subject to formal agreement by the Motor Cycle Union of Ireland (MCUI), which will be confirmed at their upcoming inter centre conference.
