Cummins Returns To The Ulster GP with Honda Racing

Posted:

Conor Cummins will be back on-board the Honda Racing CBR1000RR Fireblade SP this week for the Ulster Grand Prix.

Situated just west of Belfast in Northern Ireland, the event takes place on the 7.4-mile Dundrod circuit and is dubbed ‰Û÷the world‰Ûªs fastest road race‰Ûª.

The ‰Û÷Ramsey rocket‰Ûª was due to race at the meeting last year for Honda Racing, but had to pull out after sustaining an injury at the Southern 100 in mid-July. Cummins has enjoyed previous success at the UGP, winning the Superbike race in 2009 and is a former lap record holder, something he hopes he can repeat this year.

Cummins will compete for Honda Racing in three Superbike races, with one on Thursday 6 August and two on Saturday 8 August.

"I cannot wait until first practice next week on the Superbike!" Cummins said. "The Ulster GP is one of my favourite races and after missing it last year due to my injury I‰Ûªm even more eager to get going this year.

"I‰Ûªm hoping to finish the international road racing season on a high and the Honda CBR ticks all the boxes for me, and I just can‰Ûªt wait to get on it. I‰Ûªve had a good track record at the Ulster in the past with a lap record and a win in 2009; so I‰Ûªm hoping I can repeat that success this year.

"It‰Ûªs a proper fast course and excites me every time I get to race there, and the Fireblade is well suited to its fast flowing nature."
