The latest news from the Ulster Grand Prix Supporters Club
It is with deep regret that we have to inform you of the death of our esteemed former club President, Andy Pinkerton.
Andy was a founder member of the Ulster Grand Prix Supporters Club and a true supporter of the Ulster Grand Prix. He served as a committee member for a long number of years and during that time held several positions including club President and most notably acted as assistant to his dear wife Menai, in her role as Membership Registrar.
We would like to express our sincere condolences and sympathy to Menai, their son Gareth and family.
Des Stewart, Chairman

The 2020 Membership Mailshot letters have been issued to club members and should have arrived with you all sometime during week commencing 20 July. We apologise for the delay in issuing the mailshot as many of you have been in contact over the past months to ask about this year's badge and sticker to update your collection.
Since 1963 the UGPSC has continually supported the Ulster Grand Prix on the Dundrod Circuit. Sadly, this year, due to financial constraints the race promoters were not in a position to secure a date for UGP2020. To compound matters the advent of Coronavirus (Covid-19) has delayed future race promotion planning. We therefore, must now all focus our attention to UGP2021 and look forward to the Ulster's 100th anniversary in 2022.
2020 Membership (Badge and car sticker) costs £20.00 or €23.00 euro.
There is also the opportunity to purchase the UGPSC Collectors Badge (launched 2019), priced at £5.00 or €6.00 euro each if purchased along with your 2020 membership. You have the choice of white, black, gold or silver - or why not purchase all four!
It is our intention to keep all renewed members updated on race plans - the biggest constraint of course is securing finance - however we must continue to explore all avenues over the coming months to find a way forward. If you have any fundraising ideas please get in touch with us via our Contact page here
May we also take this opportunity to thank you all for your support in the past and I trust we can rely on your support in the future.

We will be writing to all club members to update every one of our plans for 2020 and going forward. However, in order to minimise the risk to individuals, and postal staff it is unlikely that anything will be issued until current Government restrictions in relation to Coronavirus (Covid-19) are lessened. Bearing this in mind we are hopeful that we will be able to issue the mailshot during June.

It is with great regret the organisers of the Ulster Grand Prix, the Dundrod and District Motorcycle Club, must announce the race will not take place in 2020.
Despite numerous meetings in recent months with councillors, MLAs, MPs and Ministers and other interested parties, we have been unable to find the necessary financial support to run the meeting this year.
The unprecedented crisis surrounding the Coronavirus epidemic has made finding a solution at this stage impossible.
