Thos previous 2 days of qualifying have brought us to the 2017 Ulster Grand Prix Saturday Race Day and here’s how that panned out.
The schedule was as follows :
It really was an epic day’s racing the highlights for me were two fold. Firstly – Bruce Anstey taking a Superbike win and secondly – Davy Morgan taking the lightweight win on his 250 Honda! Epic. Make sure to check out my galleries from every qualifying session and each race! Lat year I was disappointed in the Ulster Grand Prix for many reasons, however that is all in the past, the 2017 UGP Saturday Race Day was – simply – outstanding.
Bruce Anstey wanted his overlap record back and he got it with a 3.18:249 lap – that’s an average speed of 134.396 mph. However that record only sttod for a lap then Dean Harrison came in with a blingingly quick 134.614 mph lap that took 3.17:928 minutes complete and also took the overall lap record.
Another absolutely noteworthy rider is Peter Hickman – his first outing on the roads and already a Superbike win (and a couple of others) already under his belt

William Dunlop pulled out of Saturday’s racing (on Friday) due to a broken hand. However he raced twice, stating he has a lot of people at the track who came to see him and he didn’t want to let them down. Top Bloke right there!
One thing though as the nights get longer and the days shortage stay safe out there.
