Ulster Grand Prix – Northern Ireland


Conor Cummins claims second podium at the Ulster Grand Prix


The Ulster Grand Prix in Northern Ireland drew to a close yesterday with Honda Racing’s Conor Cummins taking a second podium finish on his Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP.

The final Superbike race of the day took place in wet weather conditions and saw the race reduced to four laps of the 7.4-mile Dundrod circuit. Cummins, 29, started the race from 11th and quickly moved up into the lead group.

By the end of the second lap Cummins had slotted into second place and had started to close the gap on the race leader. A close finish across the line saw the ‘Ramsey rocket’ take second place, just behind race winner Peter Hickman.


Earlier in the day Cummins placed fifth in the first Superbike race. A strong start saw the Manxman running with the top six, but a red flag on the fifth lap saw the race stopped and results declared from the fourth lap. The race winner was Bruce Anstey with Padgetts Honda.

I love the Ulster GP and this week has been great with two podium finishes, I think in the first Superbike race yesterday I had the pace to push for another podium finish but unfortunately the red flag came out and put pay to that. The Fireblade has been faultless all week and I have really enjoyed riding it round here for the first time, it suits the circuits fast flowing nature so well and I hope I’ll be back next year for another go!

Overall it’s been a positive meeting for Honda Racing and Conor, we’ve had two-second place finishes and a solid fifth with the Fireblade. Conor was very strong in all races and I am sure would have finished higher in the first Superbike race, but due to the red flag the results were taken from the fourth lap. The second race was fantastic for Conor and he just lost out on the win by half a wheel, another lap and I am sure he could have taken the win.
