It’s the final day of the Northern Irish Road Racing Calendar, and it’s one of the biggest – The 2018 Ulster Grand Prix Saturday Race Day.
This article is being written real time during the event, in a new approach for me, it may work it may not. So I welcome your comments and input either way. That should explain why things may bounce about a little, but if it works I may use it in the future as a sort of live blog…
The day got off to an absolutely flying start with Peter Hickman showing once again that he is the fastest road racer on the planet and had his eyes firmly fixed on breaking more records – breaching 200 mph at the Flying Kilo speedtrap…
.@peterhickman60 tops this morning's 20 minute free practice session – 133.992mph and 201mph through the speed trap on the Flying Kilo.
