Published: 13 August 2016

Bruce Anstey took victory in a red-flagged opening Supersport race at today’s Ulster Grand Prix ahead of Ian Hutchinson and Conor Cummins. 

Anstey, who started on pole position, shot off the line to build a commanding lead in the first half of the race, sitting over two seconds in front of CAME bpt Yamaha’s Ian Hutchinson after three laps.

However, Hutchinson upped the wick as the second half of the race began to move within a second of the New Zealander, but a red flag following an incident at Joey's Windmill not long after leaders crossed the line to complete their fourth lap, halted the race. 

The result was declared shortly after, giving Anstey the win ahead of Hutchinson and Conor Cummins. Michael Dunlop was a retirement on the second lap. 

Dean Harrison finished fourth ahead of Dan Kneen and William Dunlop. Trooper Kawasaki’s Peter Hickman was seventh, ahead of Derek McGee and Christian Elkin with Dan Cooper rounding out the top ten.
