Honda Racing’s Conor Cummins placed his Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP second in yesterday’s Dundrod 150 Superbike race at the Ulster Grand Prix.
Dubbed ‘the world’s fastest road race’ the 2015 Ulster GP kicked off with practice starting on Wednesday 5 August, which saw Cummins from Ramsey on the Isle of Man record the second fastest time on the CBR with an 115.459mph lap – the session was untimed due to wet weather.
On Thursday Superbike qualifying took place in the afternoon after a day of delays due to a number of red flags in other sessions, with the ‘Ramsey Rocket’ qualifying in 11th place.
A good start off the line saw Cummins, 29, and his CBR machine move into sixth place and by lap three he was third. On the final lap race leader Guy Martin crashed out unhurt and Cummins moved into second place.
The race was red flagged following Martin’s highside and Cummins was confirmed in second place, behind race winner Bruce Anstey, also on CBR machinery with Padgetts Honda.
The final two Superbike races of the meeting will take place on Saturday 8 August.
