Ulster Grand Prix 2020 cancelled

Coronavirus and financial struggles make comp impossible

The 2020 Ulster Grand Prix has gone the way of the other major road racing meetings this year - like the North West 200, Southern 100 and the TT, it's been cancelled because of coronavirus.

The Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club, which puts on the event, has put out a statement saying it makes the announcement with great regret.

The statement says the club had already been struggling to secure the necessary financial support needed to run the meeting this year, despite months of meetings with politicians on both a local and national level.

It adds that the pandemic has made finding a solution at this stage an impossibility.
