Ulster grand prix bike week 2013

Ok so this week is Ulster Grand Prix bike week...with the racing on Thursday and Saturday...Michael Dunlop..,Guy Martin..,etc and I shall be up at it every evening.. http://www.ulstergrandprix.net/

Tonight at the leisure center (about a mile from me) was a good display of classic bikes ..road bikes and classic race bikes from some very famous racers.

The road bike went on a cavalcade out of town and up round the course and back..only a few miles., but it was nice to see and hear them running.
I went along and took some photos for your enjoyment....

If you know anything about real road racing...you'll recognise this stuff!. Tom Herron..Ray Mccullough.., Joey Dunlop..., Bill Ivy..etc.

I'll obviously take some more up at the course ..pits..riders etc and keep you up to speed (so to speak) as the week goes on.

Nice!

I was a spanner man for a superstock rider at the Ulster GP. Unfortunately I was there the only time it's been cancelled due to the rain. (It was that bad it was lifting manhole covers)

Have a great weeks racing and hope the weathers kind.

Thanks guys I'm glad you liked the 'Nostalgia'.......unfortunately the weather so far has been a little 'unkind' (typical after 5 weeks of sunshine!)

You're not joking, Brian!

Typically, after the roads opened this afternoon, it started to clear a bit!
I did a lap in the car about five o'clock, and it seemed raceable to me- wet, yes, but no standing water and consistant the whole way around- perfect for a full wet tyre.
The forecast for saturday is no better, unfortunately.

The older I get, the faster I was!

Awful weather Stephen..not looking good for Saturday!...fingers crossed!
Here are the superbike practice results though....if the race is on Michael will be hard to catch!
