Peter Hickman “still owed a cash prize” from 2019 Ulster Grand Prix
The event did not take place in 2020 due to debts in the order of £ 300,000 and the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The historic race will not take place this year either.
The development comes after the club received a liquidation order last April.
Now there is new hope that the event can return to the road racing calendar in 2022.
However, Peter Hickman, who topped with a record seven wins in seven starts in 2019 and re-established the Ulster Grand Prix as the world’s fastest road race with a lap of 136.415 mph, says he still owes a cash prize since its last appearance two years since.
The England rider said that while he would be interested in returning to racing at Dundrod, his return would depend on how much of the unpaid winnings he was reimbursed.
“As for what will happen next year, if the event is going – even if it’s not with the same club or the same people – they have to deal with the riders in terms of what the runners lost as much as possible, ”Hickman said. .
“Of course it would be great if Ulster came back again and I would be interested in coming back, but it depends on what we actually get from what we are owed.
“I was fortunate enough to get my starting money, and I know most others didn’t, but I’m still owed a cash prize. I won more prizes in 2019 than any other runner and that’s obviously a reasonable amount.
“This needs to be covered with whatever help they can give us to get back in 2022.”
