The MCE Insurance Ulster Grand Prix has attracted the world’s best road racers to Dundrod this week for the last of the ‘big three’ international meetings of the season.

Expectations are high for the first 134mph lap of the 7.4-mile course, with New Zealand’s Bruce Anstey holding the outright lap record since 2010, when he came within a whisker of the 134mph mark with a lap of 133.977mph set on the Relentless TAS Suzuki GSX-R1000.
