Hutchinson set for Ulster Grand Prix comeback

1 of 1

Triumphant Isle of Man TT comeback hero Ian Hutchinson is set to return to this year’s Ulster Grand Prix, as he continues his incredible bounce back from the horrific injuries he suffered at the end of 2010.

A former race winner at the Dundrod circuit, Hutchinson will once again venture to the Northern Irish race with his PBM Kawasaki team after his highly successful TT.

“I’m really looking forward to the Ulster, it’s one of my favourite races and the one I’ve spent the longest away from with my injury.

“I’ve had some great results so far this year and I went well at Dundrod back in 2010, but I think I’m riding better than ever now. The target is to get back on the top step in all of my classes. It’s always really competitive at Dundrod though, so I know I’ll have to fight for it, but I’ve never been afraid of a fight before. I just can’t wait to get going.”

This year’s races take place from the 3rd to the 8th August, with qualifying on the 5th and 6th August before racing on the 6th and 8th.
