Video: A look towards the Ulster Grand Prix

This will be the 60th Anniversary of the Ulster Grand Prix at Dundrod and a quality line up of the world's top road racers was announced by Clerk of the Course Noel Johnston who said: "I'm delighted to confirm that Cameron Donald will travel from Australia to compete, not having ridden since the Isle of Man TT.

"He will be going head to head with the Dunlops, Michael and William, Guy Martin, Bruce Anstey, Gary Johnson, Stephen Thompson and the first newcomer to lap the Dundrod Circuit at over 130mph, Dean Harrison."

It was also announced that reigning Irish Supersport champion and Irish Superbike contender David Haire will make his Dundrod debut this year while Noel Johnston confirmed that past winner Keith Amor plans to emerge from retirement to race at the UGP next year, 2014.

Now in its 91st year the UGP is steeped in history with many ups and downs along the way and but for the year long effort by the Dundrod Club members to raise the £1million required to run the meeting it would be impossible to stage the event.
