Ulster GP – Dundrod Circuit

Man of the Meeting and three wins from the three races that he finished. Guy Martin bagged a hat trick of wins at last weekend’s Ulster Grand Prix to end his 2013 International Road Racing season in fine style.

 

The Lincolnshire man won the blue riband Ulster Grand Prix Superbike race and also scored victories in the opening Supersport race and the final Superbike encounter. Guy also recorded the fastest lap in Superbike race 2 with a lap speed of 132.938mph. In the Superstock race he was forced to retire with an electrical fault caused by some water in the electronics and the Supersport 2 retirement was simply down to a connector problem.

 

Speaking afterwards, a delighted Guy Martin said:, “I’m over the moon with that today. What a way to seal the deal for next year with the Tyco Suzuki boys and well deserved for everyone involved. The Superbike was quick in the Ulster Grand Prix race but just started moving about a little towards the end, so we made a few changes and yeah… it was peachy, just peachy. The little 600 was flying and we again proved how good a little bike she is and those Metzeler tyres, top job boy, top job. Great racing and well done to the organisers for getting it off well, and I’m pleased to win the Darran Lindsay Man of the Meeting Award. Now it’s time for the boat home!”
