The Isle of Man TT took over as the world’s fastest road race in 2018 from the Ulster Grand Prix after Peter Hickman set a scorching new absolute lap record of 135.452mph in the Senior race.

Poor weather at Dundrod last August meant any prospects of the Northern Ireland road race wrestling back the title were thwarted.

The late Dan Kneen is the second fastest rider ever to lap the Dundrod course.
