Join us to celebrate the centenary of the Ulster Grand Prix. From its beginnings in 1922, the Grand Prix has attracted enormous crowds at home and abroad, becoming one of the most thrilling events in the international motorcycling calendar.
Norman Windrum’s book celebrates a hundred years of the Grand Prix, its great riders and machines. Norman will be interviewed by Liam Beckett.
Liam Beckett is a sports pundit on BBC Radio Ulster and writes a weekly sports column for The Sunday Life. He worked as Robert Dunlop’s mechanic/manager until Dunlop’s untimely death in 2008. In 2018, Liam received an MBE for services to the voluntary sector and to sport in Northern Ireland.
Norman Windrum attended his first Ulster Grand Prix in 1947, when he was just ten years old. He was mesmerised. Since then, he’s attended every UGP and, seventy- five years later, he’s still got the bug. In 1979, he published The Ulster Grand Prix, celebrating fifty years of the iconic race. This year he marks the centenary of the race with the publication of 100 Years of the Ulster Grand Prix: A Century of Road Racing. He is privileged to have seen in action most of the heroes whose names are recorded in this book.
