The world's fastest road racer Ian Hutchinson, who clocked up a staggering 134.089mph at this year's MCE Insurance Ulster Grand Prix, will be in Belfast on Saturday, December 3 to launch and sign copies of his new autobiography.

Hosted by the Ulster Grand Prix, the Tyco BMW star will be at the Charles Hurst BMW Motorrad showroom on the Boucher Road in Belfast. Hutchy will participate in a live Q&A session followed by book signings at 10.30am and again at 1.00pm, with all fans welcome to attend.

Noel Johnston, Clerk of the Course at the MCE Ulster Grand Prix, said: "We're proud to be hosting the exclusive Northern Ireland launch of Hutchy's book, which tells the story of his phenomenal comeback from what, for most, would have been a career-ending injury.

"Ian isn't most people though, and you need only look at his form at this year's Ulster GP to realise that he's back at the top of his game. It was undoubtedly one of the most thrilling events we've seen in recent years, thanks in no small part to four spectacular wins for Hutchy."

Currently in Macau with Tyco BMW, where he is looking to round off his year with a Far Eastern victory for Philip Neill's team, Hutchinson said: "I've always received a warm welcome from the Irish fans, both North and South, despite them having some big local names to support over the years, so I'm delighted to be coming to Belfast.

"I had a great year with Tyco BMW, so it would be nice to come back with a Macau Grand Prix win for them as it's one I know Philip Neill would like to add to the team's CV."

The 14-time Isle of Man TT winner's book is on sale now at most major retailers and will also be available to purchase at the event on December 3.

The Macau Grand Prix takes place this Saturday with Hutchinson aiming to add to his 2013 triumph.
